Global company ePac Flexible Packaging has expanded its international presence into Africa with the launch of newest location in Ghana.
ePac Ghana, which is a collaborative venture with ePac Holdings, will be managed by Ghanaian entrepreneur Victor Sosah.
Sosah said: “As a Ghanaian I am acutely aware of the need for healthy eating options in our country, increasing local production, and reducing our reliance on imported foods whilst promoting made in Ghana products both locally and internationally.
“Our focus here with ePac Ghana will be to help local and regional small and medium-sized businesses be successful and to make a difference in the communities we serve.”
Established in the US in 2016, ePac is known for their all-HP Indigo flexible packaging. The company offers custom printed finished pouches and roll stock to all brands primarily small and medium-sized enterprises.
It currently runs 18 manufacturing plants in the US, Canada, Europe, and Indonesia.
ePac Ghana will serve as a base for the company’s expansion on the African continent.
The new Ghana location is under construction, but it has already started receiving orders that will be fulfilled by ePac UK Silverston.
ePac CEO Jack Knott said: “We are fortunate to have a partner in Ghana with all the qualifications we look for when opening a new ePac location.
“Victor brings a multitude of talents to ePac, cares deeply about the community, and is committed to helping local brands grow. This is precisely ePac’s mission across the globe.”
In June this year, ePac Flexible Packaging announced plans to open a new facility near Sacramento to serve the Northern California area.
