The Garland facility produces protective packaging materials and acts as a distribution centre. The facility will also feature an onsite customer demo and training centre.

Production has already started at the 128,000ft² plant and is expected to increase later this year. It currently employs 44 people and will employ another 40 by the end of the year.

The Arlington facility is due to begin operations later this year. Once operational, it will produce Pregis’ recently rebranded Pregis EverTec mailer.

The company is currently recruiting 80 new manufacturing positions for the 265,000ft² site.

Both facilities can be expanded subject to future requirements and are expected to generate jobs in the region.

Pregis CEO Kevin Baudhuin said: “E-commerce is continuing to grow exponentially, with brand owners and retailers looking for sustainable alternatives to ship their products through the parcel network direct to consumers.

“Pregis’ investment in several new manufacturing facilities this year is yet another commitment to our robust e-commerce offering and our dedication to offering a diverse portfolio of shipping solutions tailored to this need.”

In 2019, the company invested $6m in its facility in Grand Rapids, Michigan, to install a third multilayer Windmoeller and Hoelscher (W&H) blown film line.

As well as the W&H lines, the 90,000ft² facility also accommodates four modern multilayer blown film extrusion lines and a film lab.
