Toppan Merrill announced plans June 25 for a 70,000-square-foot expansion to its Sartell facility. The announcement followed unanimous approval of a business subsidy by the Sartell City Council members at their June 24 meeting.
Toppan Merrill is a specialty digital-printing company (formerly Merrill Corp.) that opened in St. Cloud in 1994 and some years later a branch of the company (fulfillment order center) in Sartell. The expansion will allow Toppan Merrill to increase efficiency and capacity to support an expanding customer base and add additional jobs in the community, according to a press release, with the St. Cloud functions moving to the Sartell plant.
Toppan Merrill’s parent company, Toppan Leefung Pte. Ltd., expects to invest $6 million during the course of the expansion project that will include 13,500 square feet of office space and 56,375 square feet of additional warehouse and production space into the existing 100,000-square-foot building at 300 11th Ave. E. in east Sartell between Hwy. 15 and the Country Manor campus. The expansion is slated to be completed in spring 2020.
