ePac plans to open a new plant in the Los Angeles area early next year. This will mark ePac’s third location since opening its first plant in Middleton, Wisconsin, in May 2016. The second plant, located in Boulder, Colorado, is scheduled to open this November.

“ePac’s growth strategy is to build a total of fifteen plants in key markets across the U.S. by 2019,” says Virag Patel, senior managing director, ePac Holdings. “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 (SMBs) that need a partner to grow with them has been extremely well received.”

The company further reports that ePac Los Angeles will open a sales office within the next 60 days, and will fulfill orders out of its Middleton and Boulder facilities until the plant is operational, which is expected in early 2018.

Partnering with ePac on the Los Angeles plant will be FlexPack Partners, an East Coast-based investment firm focused on the emerging digital packaging space. FlexPack is also a partner in ePac’s Boulder operation.
