Jacuzzi Brands dedicated its recently expanded state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in the city of Marsa in Malta. The plant manufactures a new line of Aegean® stainless steel kitchen sinks, which are sold under the Astracast® brand name. Over the last 12 months, Jacuzzi Brands has invested about $4.5 million in new technology, tooling and processing equipment in the Malta plant, improving capacity by more than 50%, the company said. The plant was expanded in response to a worldwide increase in consumer demand for stainless steel sinks, especially in Europe.
