DELRAY BEACH, Fla. — A relatively new packaging company, ePac Flexible Packaging, has announced plans to build seven new facilities in Cleveland, Ohio; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Longview, Texas; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; New York City, New York; Louisville, Kentucky; and Richmond, Virginia. The company, founded in 2016, currently runs four facilities across the US and another four facilities are already under construction.
“As we’ve announced previously, our strategic intent when we first opened ePac in 2016 was to prove our business model and build 15 ePac locations by the end of 2019,” said Jack Knott, CEO of ePac. “With these new sites coming online by year-end, we will have fulfilled our commitment and look forward to working with brands in these exciting markets.”
Several investment firms will help fund these new facilities. Indevco Plastics, Inc. will invest in and operate new locations in Philadelphia, Louisville, Longview and Richmond, overseen by the executive vice president of the firm. Woodhaven Capital Partners, which currently owns and operates ePac’s plant in Boston, will overtake the new Cleveland and New York City locations, led by Managing Partner Tim Novak. Finally, MGS Holdings will partner with ePac for the new Minneapolis plant under the leadership of Scott May, formerly senior vice president of sales and marketing at Inland Packaging.
The packaging company’s current facilities are in Madison, Wisconsin; Boulder, Colorado; Chicago, Illinois; and Miami, Florida. Additional plants are currently being constructed in Atlanta, Georgia; Boston, Massachusetts; Los Angeles, California; and Austin, Texas.
According to ePac, the company is the only US-based packaging supplier using nothing but the latest digital printing technology, HP Indigo 20000. The company works with manufacturers big and small and offers a quick-to-market approach.
