Herff Jones To Add Fourth Eton Production Line

Indianapolis-based graduation cap and gown manufacturer Herff Jones Co. of Indiana Inc. has ordered a fourth unit production system from Sweden-based Eton Systems AB to be installed at Herff Jones’ plant in Arcola, Ill. The new Eton line is part of a plant expansion that will add 70,000 square feet of floor space and bring the number of Eton workstations at the plant to 86. The expansion is expected to be completed early this year.

“This addition is part of our 15-year strategic growth plan,” said Terry Hayden, plant manager at Arcola. “We continue to invest in Eton as we constantly work to maximize efficiency, minimize costs and improve quality. With our prior Eton implementations, we had full production within one week and have increased efficiencies by more than 20 percent on average.”
