US-based packaging firm ePac Flexible Packaging has announced plans to open its second facility in Canada.

The facility will be located in Mississauga, Ontario, and is due to open in June.

It has started accepting orders, which will be fulfilled by ePac Vancouver until the facility is operational.

ePac has not revealed the financial details of its investment into the facility.

ePac Canadian operation managing partner George Boustani said: “We opened ePac Vancouver in December 2019, and realised the same rapid growth we’ve seen in other ePac locations around the world.

“Our value proposition of 5-15 day turnarounds and low minimums resonates well with the Canadian market, and we’re excited to bring our community-based focus to Toronto.”

The company has appointed Hila Frish to serve as general manager of the facility.

The facility will be ePac’s 19th plant in total. The firm currently has facilities in the US, Canada, Europe and Indonesia.

ePac CEO Jack Knott said: “In each market, we see a similar dynamic unfold. Small and medium-sized businesses are growing at double digits, and our partnerships with them can and do help accelerate their growth.”

ePac provides short and medium run length pouches and rollstock. Its first Canadian manufacturing facility opened in 2016.

In January, the company expanded its network into the Asia Pacific region by adding a new location in Seoul, South Korea, through a partnership between ePac Holdings, ePac Holdings Asia and South Korea-based CC Labs.
