American Fuji Seal Inc. is an extension of a Japan-based company. They make shrink-sleeve and self-adhesive labels, as well as other much-needed packaging products. They started out in Japan as early as 1897, then added their first American location in 1975. Now, they are adding a new location in Hickory, North Carolina. In order to do this, they are investing $52 million toward the project. This will also create over 100 jobs over the next 5 years. So this is good news for the residents of Catawba County.
