ePac, LLC, Middleton, Wis., announced plans to open a new plant in the Los Angeles area, with a second plant, located in Boulder, Colo., scheduled to open in November.

“ePac’s growth strategy is to build a total of 15 plants in key markets across the U.S. by 2019,” says Virag Patel, senior managing director. “We’ve seen strong market acceptance of ePac’s unique value proposition since opening just over a year ago. In particular, our focus on small to medium-size businesses that need a partner to grow with them has been extremely well received.”

Furthermore, ePac will open a Los Angeles sales office within the next 60 days to fulfill orders out of the company’s Middleton and Boulder facilities until the plant is operational, which is expected in early 2018.

“There is little question about the demand for quick-turn, short-to-medium run jobs, based on our early experience selling into the Boulder market,” adds Dustin Steerman, managing director of ePac Boulder. “Our expertise is in helping brands grow, and we look forward to beginning sales in the LA market. We are also finding a high level of interest among our customers in working with an American manufacturer, providing a competitive option to Asian-made products and the ability to buy direct and avoid concerns about service and product quality.”
