US-based ePac Flexible Packaging is set to open a new production facility in Boston, Massachusetts, in order to cater to the demand in the New England market.

The new facility is scheduled to be operational early next year. The company will fulfil orders received by the plant from another location until it opens a local sales office.

ePac Flexible Packaging chief operating officer Virag Patel was quoted by brewbound.com as saying: “ePac eliminates the need to order unnecessarily long runs or source their packaging from overseas. ePac plants are located in communities across the US and become an important member of the business infrastructure in each market they serve.”

The packaging firm has also established a partnership with private investment firm Woodhaven Capital Partners to form ePac Boston.

“ePac eliminates the need to order unnecessarily long runs or source their packaging from overseas.”

Woodhaven Capital Partners managing partner Tim Novak said: “At Woodhaven, we spent a lot of time analysing ePac’s business model, performance, and market opportunity, and believe this to be an outstanding opportunity for our investor group, and one that I am personally committed to.

“My family and I will be relocating to the Boston area in the coming months, and I look forward to leading ePac’s emergence into the New England market.”

Established in May 2016, ePac currently has operations in Madison, Boulder, and Chicago. The company is planning to open additional locations in Miami and Los Angeles.
