US-based PBFY Flexible Packaging has opened a new 60,000ft² shipping facility in Portland, Tennessee.
The move will allow the company to take on more customers and is expected to provide significant delivery improvements for its East Coast and Midwest clients.
PBFY CEO and founder Lyndsey Tidwell said that the company’s goal is to invest in the area and offer full time employment to spur economic growth.
The expansion in Tennessee will enable PBFY to accomplish timely services, brand recognition, and product line growth.
PBFY president Matt Bryant said: “Our account executives are packaging experts that are engaged in the entire process, so our customers aren’t constantly getting handed off to customer service and other departments.”
The new facility will also enable two to three-day shipment timeframes for clients throughout the US.
PBFY Tennessee general manager Chris Castro said the location will help with speed and freight costs to Midwest and East Coast customers.
The company manufactures and distributes flexible packaging products, bags, pouches, films, custom-printed labels and hot stamps.
These services are for a diverse collection of industries, such as coffee, tea, specialty and natural foods, agricultural, pharmaceutical and pet food sectors.
