Firm Will Invest $6.5 Million In New Manufacturing Facility
February 26, 2020

ePac Flexible Packaging, a provider of digitally printed flexible packaging, has announced the firm will invest $6.5 million to establish a new, high-tech manufacturing facility in Henrico County.

Founded in 2016 with a mission to serve small-and medium-size businesses throughout the United States, ePac Flexible Packaging is technology-driven and built to provide customers with a fast and easy way to buy flexible packaging. ePac is the first supplier in North America built entirely on the latest wide-web digital printing technology, the HP Indigo 20000. The company produces finished pouches and rollstock, and offers high definition custom printing with variable imaging while eliminating plate fees and enabling customers to print to demand.

“ePac was created with a mission to provide locally-based consumer packaged goods companies with great flexible packaging to compete with large brands and to go to market quickly and economically,” said Robert Laird, General Manager of ePac Richmond. “Our customers are predominantly small- and medium-sized food manufacturers who value fast time-to-market and the ability to order to demand. As we evaluated the Virginia market, we found a vibrant food manufacturing industry that we believe we could add value to and help small brands become big brands.”

“Technology is changing the way companies operate, and ePac Flexible Packaging has developed an innovative digital platform that sets the company apart from its competitors,” said Governor Northam in response to the announcement. “ePac’s new, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Henrico County will enable the company to continue producing and delivering orders quickly and efficiently, and help drive the growth of Virginia businesses that will now have access to a high-quality, local provider of sustainable packaging solutions.”

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with the Henrico Economic Development Authority to secure the project for Virginia and will support ePac’s job creation through the state-funded Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP) which provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs in order to support employee recruitment and training activities.
