Middleton, Wis. — U.S.-based flexible packaging specialist ePac Holdings LLC first entered Europe in December 2019, when it opened its first site in Silverstone, England.
At the time, the company said that in time, it would be further extending its network of packaging production plants on the continent.
Now ePac Holdings Europe is making good on that commitment with the opening of two new sites in France and Poland.
The company created by Jack Knott, Carl Joachim and Virag Patel in 2016 focuses on offering smaller brands with a more sustainable, flexible and fast way to achieve brand presence with high-quality packaging. The company has since opened facilities across the U.S., Canada, Asia, United Kingdom and now continental Europe.
The Middleton-based company was established in 2016, and specializes in short- and medium-run quick-turn pouches and rollstock. Its plants use HP Indigo 20000 digital printing technology.
Custom, digitally-printed roll stock and finished pouches are delivered within 10–15 business days, after artwork is approved.
"Our tried and tested concept is setting a new standard in packaging," said Johnny Hobeika, managing director of ePac Holdings Europe. "The European market is crying out for faster delivery, full flexibility and sustainable production, and the ePac model meets those demands with ease."
The new manufacturing center in France, located near Lyon, in the town of Bourgoin Jallieu, will be headed by ePac Lyon managing partner Jonathan Schmitt. The new ePac facility in Wroclaw, Poland will be managed by Maciej Plamieniak.
Orders for both locations will be fulfilled by the United Kingdom until full manufacturing is online.
