ePac Flexible Packaging has announced a further investment in printing and finishing equipment to support its rapidly growing customer base by driving down lead times and the ability to handle longer job runs.
Throughout 2020 ePac has been adding new manufacturing facilities in North America, expanded internationally, and added printing and finishing equipment to its existing operations. These expansion projects will continue to run through the balance of 2020 and into 2021.
With its core mission to serve locally based small and medium-sized brands, the additional capacity will drive down lead times while enabling the company to also handle longer run jobs.
‘When we first opened ePac our strategy was to run with two HP Indigo 20000’s in each plant,’ said Virag Patel, ePac’s chief operating officer. ‘We’ve revised that thinking and are now adding a third press along with additional downstream processing equipment in many of our locations. With the added capacity, along with our interconnected facilities across the US, we’ll continue to push the envelope in service delivery time.’
Jack Knott, CEO of ePac added: ‘With 14 plants in the US plus one each in Canada, the UK and Indonesia, we’ll exceed USD 100 million in annual sales this year and double again in 2021. From a Greenfield less than four years ago with no assets or customers, ePac will soon break into the top 25 of flexible packaging converters.’
