Atlanta is the latest growth market for a flexible packaging company that relies on digital printing to quickly fill orders.
The new Gwinnett County location for ePac Flexible Packaging LLC is slated to open early next year, according to the company that focuses on short- and medium-run pouch and roll stock jobs.
Windell McGill is partnering with ePac, which originated the idea of creating regional flexible packaging businesses that promise quick turnaround on orders. F&S Capital, an investment firm based in Tulsa, Okla., also is a partner in the Georgia project.
McGill has years of experience in digital printing and packaging, most recently was with HP Inc. in Alpharetta, Ga. He will be managing partner of the new Georgia site, which hopes to finalize a location in the coming weeks.
The flexible packaging company uses HP digital printing technology to more quickly move from job to job as compared with other printing methods.
“Small and medium-sized businesses, in particular, will benefit from having a local supplier to work with as an option to traditional and overseas packaging suppliers. With our digital platform, ePac customers launch new products faster, run more promotions, and order to demand, thereby reducing inventory and obsolescence,” McGill said in statement.
The move into Georgia follows a recent ePac announcement of plans to also build a site in Boston.
The company expects to have seven sites operating by early next year, including four currently in production.
