Packaging firm ePac to open Northern California facility
ePac Flexible Packaging has announced plans to open its a facility near Sacramento to serve the Northern California area.
The company has begun accepting orders, with fulfillment handled by other ePac U.S. locations until its manufacturing facility opens during the third quarter of 2020.
ePac Sacramento is a joint venture between Karma Packaging and ePac Holdings, and will be managed by Pete Rogers, a long-time Sacramento native and business owner. The ePac manufacturing facility will be located at 1601 Aviation Blvd., Suite 125, Lincoln, CA 95648.
While serving brands of all sizes, ePac is primarily focused on helping community-based, small and medium-sized businesses grow with flexible packaging.
“We currently have 16 locations running and serving local brands and communities in the U.S., Canada, England and Indonesia,” said Virag Patel, ePac COO, through a press release. “Our network of manufacturing plants gives us the ability to serve local businesses everywhere, and digitally transfer production of any product to locations of our customer’s choosing to meet short delivery times and minimize shipping costs.”
ePac is the first company created based entirely on break-through digital printing technology from Hewlett Packard, the Indigo 20000. This technology platform enables the company to provide fast time to market, economical short and medium run length jobs, customization and the ability to order to demand to avoid costly inventory and obsolescence. ePac’s digital platform is inherently eco-friendly, while offering several sustainable film options.
