Contract Manufacturer Consolidates Operations, Increases Efficiency
Case Mason, a Baltimore, Md.-based provider of contract manufacturing and packaging services for consumer brands, consolidated all of its production capabilities to a 150,000-square-foot facility located in Baltimore.
Previously, the company operated out of two separate locations situated 11 miles apart.
“The recent move enabled us to substantially streamline operations and resources, and eliminate the need to shuttle personnel, materials and resources from plant to plant,” says Scott Miller, chief growth officer. “We can now set up continuous processing lines within a single footprint, which will increase our already high level of responsiveness. And, having the entire Case Mason team under one roof has dramatically improved communications, both internally and externally.”
Located at 9101 Yellow Brick Road, the consolidated facility includes 135,000 square feet dedicated to solid and liquid products filling, packaging and assembly, with a separate 16,000-square-foot segment dedicated to food and beverage production and packaging.
“We’ve experienced steady growth over the last seven years,” Miller adds. “Additional adjacent space exists should we need it to further expand our footprint and keep pace with the demands of our expanding customer base.”
The facility houses blending equipment and numerous filling lines to accommodate products in solid, semi-solid, powder and liquid formats, including bulk filling. Packaging services include bundling, cartoning, clam shell packaging, flow wrapping, shrink sealing, coding and labeling, as well as club store packaging and store-ready pallets. Assembly services include point-of-purchase displays, gift packs, tray and multi-pack assemblies, re-work and product modification services.
The location also houses a comprehensive tooling department, along with resources to provide custom equipment fabrication and reengineering for specialty projects.
The facility is registered by the American Institute of Baking (AIB), the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), is Kosher certified and is licensed by the State of Maryland for food processing.
