Real Woodstock: FLOCON's New Location Provides Room to Grow


It started more than 30 years ago with a single plastic valve, two machines and a promise to make products that perform accurately, reliably and deliver a memorable end-user experience.

Thirty years later that plastic valve is at the heart of applicator products that are used on most aircraft and automobiles, as well as nearly every piece of furniture that is produced or handled in North America.

Because of that, FLOCON, INC., a manufacturer of fluid dispensing devices, needed to relocate to handle current and anticipated future growth. The company chose Woodstock and a two-building campus situated on 58 acres. The new location with more than 670,000 square feet of space houses its headquarters, research and development, engineering, assembly, labeling, packaging and shipping.

Think of valve-applicator products this way: they are essentially pens that contain a specific fluid that is dispensed through a fibrous tip.

“FLOCON’s growth and reputation have been built on genuine innovations that make a difference in the way a fluid is dispensed,” said Stephan Ballot, vice president at FLOCON, INC. “And our innovations have to service a distinct purpose – to make the fluid dispensing experience better for our customers and end-users.”
