Prolamina Corporation, a leading North American packaging company that serves the food, medical and specialty markets, began a major renovation of its manufacturing facility in Westfield, Massachusetts.

The Westfield facility produces flexible packaging solutions from the most basic to the most technologically advanced multi-layer packaging substrate. Prolamina’s Westfield facility employs over 250 people and operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Westfield’s 250,000-square-foot manufacturing facility has been in operation for over 30 years. According to company officials, “although the building has seen improvements and renovations, until now, a refurbishment of this magnitude has never been done. “

“The build out includes facility improvements that are necessary to remain a leader in the markets we serve. Along with exterior and interior beautification, there will be improved facility wide technology and green initiatives,” officials said.

Infrastructure improvement projects include: adding additional administrative space; a small amount of manufacturing space; roof repair / replacement; overall building maintenance and rehabilitation; air quality and flooring improvements; and the accommodation of new manufacturing equipment.
