Brady expands security production space and infrastructure in North America
Expansion accommodates increased customer demand for anti-counterfeiting products and security controls
Milwaukee, Wis. (June 8, 2011) Brady announced today that it has expanded its secure production space in North America. The expansion, which more than doubles the company’s previous production space and security infrastructure, gives Brady the added capacities to meet increased customer demand for its brand protection solutions. It also enables the company to maintain its certification with the North American Security Products Organization (NASPO).
Brady responds to increased customer demands with security expansion
Brady has experienced steady growth in its brand protection business over the past several years. This growth, coupled with the need for additional customer requirements, has led the company to invest in a security expansion that greatly increases the physical floor space allotted for secure manufacturing.
In addition to increased floor space, the expansion also includes investments in new production equipment and human resources. These additions will enable the company to enhance its label converting and track and trace management systems and further advance its overall business capabilities.
“Over the past few years, we’ve been privileged to work closely with several of the top brand owners in the world,” said Mike Veum, vice president of Brady North America. “These facility upgrades will enable Brady to not only meet, but exceed their expectations for security controls.”
Security infrastructure improvements help Brady maintain NASPO certification
During the expansion, Brady made a number of security infrastructure improvements to ensure the continuation of its certification to the 2008 NASPO/ANSI security standard. This facility is one of the company’s two NASPO-certified locations; the other is located in Singapore. Both sites follow a rigid set of standards and operational protocols to ensure the security of the technologies and solutions being produced.
