US-based containers and closures provider Berlin Packaging is planning to open a new, integrated warehouse and assembly facility at Clinton Commerce Park, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The new facility will triple the size of Berlin Packaging’s Pittsburgh operations, as well as increase the capacity of the company’s Qorpak and dangerous goods material packaging divisions.

To be spread across an area of around 300,000ft², the new facility will feature warehouse, kitting and assembly and office spaces.

Once completed, Berlin Packaging will transfer its divisions to the new facility in phases, with plans to move in the dangerous goods operations by 2017.

Berlin Packaging chief operating officer Larry Rydzewski said: “The opening of this new Pittsburgh facility not only increases capacity, but it also generates even greater efficiencies in our operations.
