Berlin Packaging Expands Manufacturing-Warehousing With Clinton, Pennsylvania, Facility

11/02/2016
Berlin Packaging, a full-service supplier of plastic, glass, and metal containers and closures, is tripling the size of its Pittsburgh operations through the opening of a new, integrated warehouse and assembly facility at 2300 Sweeney Drive, Clinton, Pennsylvania.

According to company officials the Class-A structure, located in the Clinton Commerce Park, will help meet fast-growing demand for products and services from Berlin's Qorpak laboratory supply and Dangerous Goods hazardous-material packaging divisions.

Berlin Packaging's new Clinton facility will include nearly 300,000 square feet of warehouse, kitting and assembly, and office space. The company said it is moving into the new building in phases. Qorpak is now operating out of the Clinton facility, and Dangerous Goods activities are expected to move in mid-2017.

"As a company we're excited to see the meaningful and continued growth from our Qorpak and Dangerous Goods customers. The opening of this new Pittsburgh facility not only increases capacity, but it also generates even greater efficiencies in our operations," said Larry Rydzewski, COO of Berlin Packaging. "This modern warehousing and logistics center will help us better serve our customers and give us the room we need to expand in the future."

Berlin Packaging now employs more than 125 employees in the Pittsburgh area. As it completes its phased move-in at the Clinton facility, Berlin Packaging officials said they anticipate taking advantage of expanded space and capacity by adding to its workforce.
