Finnish sustainable packaging provider Huhtamaki has strengthened its presence in North America with an investment in its Paris, Texas, facility.

The company expanded its manufacturing capacity at the facility, while also consolidating its external warehouse.

Huhtamaki said that the warehouse and manufacturing facility will be leased.

It will increase the company’s folding cartons capacity in North America to support the growth of the Foodservice business.

Production at the facility is expected to start in the first quarter of 2025. It is due to employ up to 80 employees within the first three years of operation.

The new site will serve existing and new customers throughout the southern and Midwestern states.

Huhtamaki North America president Ann O’Hara said: “This expansion scales up our core business to support the continued growth of our US foodservice customers.

“The Paris plant will be key in helping the company achieve its 2030 strategy for Customer Excellence by meeting the demand for folding cartons across the region.”

In North America, Huhtamaki operates 18 manufacturing units including 17 in the US and one in Mexico. It employs approximately 4,100 people across the region.

The company manufactures packaging for consumer-packaged goods, as well as tableware, cups, folding cartons, containers and others for the foodservice industry and retail market.

The investment in Paris, Texas, facility aligns with Huhtamaki’s 2030 strategy to deliver profitable growth by expanding its core business through three technologies: paperboard, flexibles and fibre.

The company completed a €20m ($20.68m) expansion of its packaging manufacturing site in Nules, Spain, in November 2022.
