ePac Flexible Packaging started its foray into Europe in December 2019, when it opened its first site in the UK, at Silverstone. At the time, the company said that in time, it would be further extending its network of packaging production plants on the continent.
ePac Holdings Europe is now making good on that commitment with the opening of two new sites in France and Poland.
ePac Flexible Packaging was founded in the US in 2016 by Jack Knott, Carl Joachim and Virag Patel. The idea was to offer small brands a more sustainable, flexible and fast way to achieve brand presence with high-quality packaging. The company has since opened facilities across the US, Canada, Asia, UK and now Europe.
The company operates according to a digital only, full-service - from initial idea to finished product -formula, based on a simple order-to-ship process, and with a particular focus on innovative small to medium-sized businesses.
Custom digitally printed roll-stock and finished pouches are delivered within 10–15 business days, after artwork approval.
“Our tried and tested concept is setting a new standard in packaging,” says Johnny Hobeika, managing director of ePac Holdings Europe. “The European market is crying out for faster delivery, full flexibility and sustainable production, and the ePac model meets those demands with ease.”
The new manufacturing centre in France, located near Lyon, in the town of Bourgoin Jallieu, will be headed by ePac Lyon managing partner Jonathan Schmitt. The new ePac facility in Wroclaw, Poland will be managed by Maciej Plamieniak.
Orders for both locations will be fulfilled by the UK until full manufacturing is online.
