ePac Flexible Packaging opens second pouch production line

ePac Flexible Packaging has opened its second pouch production line at its Melbourne manufacturing facility to supply its rapidly growing customer base in Australia.

Since launching in Australia in late 2021, ePac has built a strong customer base among local Melbourne businesses – in particular, in the alternative food and pet food industries, leading to repeat orders.

The company said the installation of the second pouch line will double its pouch production capacity, fulfilling more orders, faster.

ePac Flexible Packaging Australia managing director Jason Brown said,”In less than six months, ePac has had a great response from the community, helping us build momentum around sales and operations in Australia.

“As the strain on international supply chains continues to escalate, our proposition of fast, local and sustainable packaging has really resonated with homegrown Aussie businesses, leading to repeat orders and impressive month-on-month sales growth.

“We’re excited to support this growing demand with the opening of our second pouch line, which will, in turn, enable the growth of our team here in Melbourne”.

Tapping into a broader Australian consumer sentiment towards buying local, ePac said it is helping small businesses establish big brand presence by supporting their packaging needs with its local, cost-effective, fast and sustainable offerings. 

Backed by digital printing capabilities, ePac’s order-to-demand model enables businesses to take new products to market without the hassle of sunk costs associated with inventory and obsolescence, through short and medium run length orders.

ePac also supports Australian businesses in responding to the increasing importance of environmentally considered purchase decisions with its recyclable locally produced packaging which aims to reduce carbon footprint and unnecessary waste.

ePac said it will further cement its position as the sustainable packaging solution of choice for local businesses, with plans to establish a new line of compostable packaging by the end of 2022. 

Most recently, the success of ePac’s Australian manufacturing facility has seen the company reach entirely new business categories beyond food and pet food, acquiring its first customers across health care, plant seeds and industrial chemicals in Australia. 

ePac Australia will celebrate the grand opening of its Melbourne manufacturing facility next month, inviting current and prospective customers to embark on tours of the site.
