Copac Global Packaging, a leading provider of packaging services to domestic and global customers, completed its $14.8 million expansion at its Spartanburg County, South Carolina, production facility.
The company constructed an additional 50,000 square feet of manufacturing space at its facility to increase productivity and add capacity. The larger facility also will allow the company to consolidate operations that are currently performed in separate buildings into a single, more efficient workflow.
"We are pleased to have completed construction on the building expansion. Our business has been growing rapidly for the past several years. This new space will allow us to install new equipment and reconfigure workflows to operate more efficiently to better serve our customers.” Jerry Lux, Copac the firm’s CEO said.
"It's always great news when an existing business decides to continue growing and succeeding in our state. We congratulate Copac on their decision to invest $14.8 million and create 32 new jobs in Spartanburg County,” said Governor Nikki Haley. As an incentive the Coordinating Council for Economic Development approved a $100,000 set aside grant for site development and real property improvements related to the project.
"Copac Global Packaging is a long-time corporate citizen of Spartanburg and we are thrilled to assist an existing industry as they continue to grow and invest in their facility and employees. As a state-of-the-art packaging company, we appreciate Copac making this investment in Spartanburg and we look forward to working with them on any future growth plans they may have,” David Britt, Chairman of the Economic Recruitment and Development Committee of Spartanburg County and member of the Economic Futures Group Board said.
