SUGAR LAND, TEXAS — Accredo Packaging, Inc., a sustainable flexible packaging manufacturer, has invested $10 million to further expand its headquarters in Sugar Land. This latest expansion, representing the fourth buildout of the facility to date, adds 83,000 square feet of office space to the existing site, which also houses a 650,000-square-foot campus that is powered entirely by wind energy and is 100% LEED-certified.
Through the expansion, the company has added 30 new job opportunities in the Sugar Land area, and expects to maintain at least 525 jobs at the site through 2031.
“More than a decade ago, we planted our roots here and we are continuously proud to call Sugar Land our home,” said Rex Varn, executive vice president of Accredo Packaging. “We are growing rapidly, and the Sugar Land market has provided us with the workforce and space we need to continue that upward trajectory.”
The campus was first established in 2009, with subsequent expansions occurring in 2013, 2021 and 2024. According to the company, additions over the years have more than tripled the size of the original site.
The campus is situated near the I-69/US 59 highway, which gives Accredo Packaging access to various airports, deep-water ports and railways within an hour’s drive of its headquarters.
The project was supported by tax abatement agreements from Sugar Land Economic Development (SLOED), one of which is a LEED tax abatement incentive rewarding environmentally friendly development in the area.
“Accredo Packaging is one of Sugar Land’s largest employers and a critical partner to our city,” said Elizabeth Huff, director of economic development and tourism for SLOED. “The company’s decision to continue expanding here aligns with our commitment to development and business growth, and serves as a testament to our thriving business ecosystem and talent pool.”
Accredo Packaging manufactures recyclable, compostable and sustainably produced flexible packaging materials for several market segments, including pet food and treats, snacks, confectionery, baked and frozen goods, and bottled water. The company also seeks to support the sustainable packaging movement through advanced printing technology, which reduces the use of ink and solvent compared to standard printing practices.
