Global custom flexible packaging provider ePac Flexible Packaging has officially opened a new Grade A production facility in Ghana.

The 2,200m² production plant is located on Spintex Road in Ghana’s capital city Accra.

The latest milestone was marked by an official opening ceremony that was attended by various customers, local government officials and associated dignitaries.

ePac CEO Jack Knott said: “The opening of the plant in Ghana represents a significant milestone in ePac’s global expansion.

“I am excited that we are able to provide a great packaging option that allows brands to compete for space on local supermarket shelves and introduce new products to international markets.”

ePac established its West Africa division in 2021 and has since used the unit to offer packaging solutions to several customers in the region, including in Nigeria, Senegal, and Zanzibar.

All associated fulfilment activities of ePac West Africa are handled by the company’s plants in the UK and also in Lyon, France.

The opening of the new Accra plant will allow the company to address the increasing demands of consumer packaged goods brands of all sizes across the area.

The company claimed it will provide competitively priced flexible packaging solutions and good turnaround times to its regional industry partners.

ePac West Africa general manager Victor Sosah said: “ePac is poised to serve the West African community with the highest quality packaging that has been proven to help small and medium enterprises grow.

“With our first facility in the region located in Ghana, we can help our customers, and consumers alike, ‘buy local’ in support of the government initiatives to increase local food manufacturing and reduce imports.”

Sosah added: “No longer will local brands need to accept inferior packaging, or source it from overseas. With ePac’s all-digital platform we’re able to reduce lead times on packaging orders from months to 15 business days (following artwork approval), while enabling brands to order to demand and avoid costly excess inventory and obsolescence.”
