GSC Packaging, a nationwide provider of turnkey contract packaging solutions, has purchased a 100,000-sq-ft facility to keep up with the company’s rapid growth.
In December of 2012, GSC Packaging and its more than 300 employees will move to its new Atlanta location that provides clients with strategic national distribution capabilities. Extensive renovations, led by Sandy Epstein of Sanford Epstein and Associates, PC, Architects, are taking place to transform the building into one of the nation’s largest, state-of-the-art contract packaging facilities.
“Company growth doesn’t happen without a team of excellent employees working daily to provide superb customer service to every client. The new state-of-the-art GSC Packaging facility is a reflection and a celebration of our team’s dedication to providing the best customer service possible to today’s world-class food manufacturers,” said Bob Shapiro, CEO of GSC Packaging.
The new GSC Packaging facility features 15 production lines, including seven horizontal form/fill/seal (FFS) lines, three six-lane stick pack packaging lines, as well as various semi-automatic, large format automatic, and secondary packaging and kitting lines. The new packaging facility also features a state-of-the-art layout and design, the latest air-handling technology, lot code tracking, real-time computerized inventory control, dust control, and air-conditioned storage.
