The company’s second flexible packaging plant, in Boulder, will serve Colorado-area customers with fast turnarounds in markets including cannabis and natural and organic food and snacks.

ePac LLC (Middleton, WI) will open its next plant in Boulder, CO in the fall of 2017. ePac Boulder is based on the same business platform as ePac’s first location in Middleton, which opened in April 2016. The company's digital-print-driven business model is focused on fast turnaround time and economical short to medium run length jobs, with order-taking to begin immediately. ePac Boulder will specialize in serving the flexible packaging needs of brands of all types and sizes, from start-ups to global brands, and vibrant local markets such as natural and organic food and snacks, and the rapidly growing cannabis market.

ePac Boulder’s sales office opened in April 2017, and has been engaging with customers in the local market. Until the Boulder facility opens in the fall, all orders are manufactured in ePac’s Wisconsin plant.

ePac claims it is the only North American company to be built around emerging wide-web digital printing technology, which significantly lowers costs for short to medium length runs. ePac reduces manufacturing lead time from months to just ten days, enables custom printing, and eliminates plate fees and inventory cost. In addition, ePac’s digital printing process has significantly less impact on the environment than conventional printing.

Management viewpoints

“We’re excited to be building ePac’s next location in the Boulder area,” says Dustin Steerman, executive vice president, ePac Boulder. “As the epicenter of the natural/organic food market, and a vibrant cannabis industry, we are already working with local brands providing new packaging solutions and an alternative to packaging produced overseas. Our rapid job turnaround time, quality, and overall value propositon are truly what differentiates ePac.”

Adds Carl Joachim, CMO, ePac Holdings, “ePac offers brand marketers the chance to think differently about packaging. We enable brands to rapidly bring new products to market, conduct highly targeted campaigns, and the ability to use new cutting-edge software tools to increase shelf appeal.”

“We’ve seen tremendous market response to ePac’s unique value proposition, which is built on providing a complete solution from prepress through converting,” says Virag Patel, ePac Holdings Co-CEO. “By providing turnaround time within ten days for most jobs, and offering low minimum order quantities, we can offer our customers solutions that, until now, were just not available. Based on our early success in Middleton it was time to add our second site in Colorado.”
