There’s big news at Plastic Packaging Technologies (PPT)—130,000 square feet big!
On December 4, we broke ground on the Center of Excellence for Flexible Pouching in Kansas City, Kansas. The Center is strategically located in the heart of America to serve rapidly growing food, pet care and consumer packaged goods markets.
The new facility will expand our manufacturing space by 130,000 square feet and add three new Totani® pouch converting lines. This significant investment will broaden our product offerings and support sustainable packaging initiatives through our Thrive™ eco-friendly packaging line.
In addition to new services and capabilities, the expansion will also add a number of skilled-labor positions to the local economy. The project is slated for completion in mid-2021.
We’re excited to grow and invest in our business so that we can continue to support our customers with innovative flexible packaging solutions. When our customers win, we win! These significant investments are perfectly aligned with customer requirements for flexible packaging formats and features that create a powerful shelf presence that sells more product. This expansion is part of our long-term, strategic commitment to our customers and the flexible packaging industry. Our continued strong growth is made possible by our outstanding team of associates, as well as the execution of our product excellence strategy that is aligned with, and focused on, delivering purposeful, powerful packaging.
