Trident has an increasing presence in Charlotte, North Carolina, scene of the first American gold rush after a golden nugget was found in 1799, and now one of the fastest-growing cities in the US.
Appropriately for a city that is the home of the NASCAR auto sports empire, Charlotte is developing at a rapid pace, having established itself as the second largest banking centre in the States and with eight Fortune 500 companies within its metropolitan area.
There are two Trident sites in the city. The first is the headquarters of our North American business, bringing together senior management, sales and graphics teams. Established in 2015, it is located close to Charlotte International Airport and within easy reach of the corporate headquarters of our parent company, global packaging services provider Sonoco.
The second is our rotogravure cylinder manufacturing plant. Opened in 1997 as one of the world’s most advanced cylinder manufacturing operations, this plant remains at the forefront of automation, delivering exceptional levels of consistent quality.
This operation supports more than 40 flexible packaging printer locations throughout the US, Canada and Mexico, with long-standing client relationships spanning three decades.
