The Henrico County Economic Development Authority (EDA) announced today that the Zeller+Gmelin Corp., a worldwide leader in printing inks, has purchased a building at 4801 Audubon Drive in Henrico to house a manufacturing and warehouse distribution center and corporate offices. The company is expected to occupy the 83,427 square-foot facility during the first quarter of 2011.

Headquartered in Eislingen, Germany, Zeller+Gmelin makes UV printing ink products for lithography, flexography, dry offset and screen printing. It operates more than 30 manufacturing and service support facilities worldwide; the company's products are used in more than 75 countries.

The Henrico facility will allow Zeller+Gmelin to expand its business operations and enhance efficiencies and productivity. The property can accommodate future expansions as well.

"We are pleased to welcome Zeller+Gmelin to Henrico County," said Board of Supervisors Chairman Patricia S. O'Bannon. "They will fit right in with the other quality industrial operations in the area. We look forward to a long relationship with this company."
