Berlin Packaging Expands Warehousing Hub In Riverside, Missouri

Berlin Packaging, the leading full-service supplier of plastic, glass, and metal containers and closures, expanded its warehousing and inventory management capacity in the Kansas City metro area with its move to a new 55,000-square-foot warehouse at 4400 N.W. 41st Street in Riverside, Missouri.

According to company officials its new facility is 65% larger than Berlin's prior North Kansas City location and can hold 150% more packaging inventory for just-in-time delivery to customers and filling locations.

The increased storage capacity at the just-built facility stems from both the larger footprint and a taller ceiling height. The site, which offers easy highway access off I-635, serves customers in Kansas, Missouri and throughout the Midwest.

"We were in our North Kansas City location for 14 years, and it was filled to capacity. We saw a doubling of inventory volume in the last two years alone, with tremendous growth coming from existing as well as new customers," said Larry Rydzewski, COO at Berlin Packaging. "With the larger space and newer amenities, the Riverside location helps us keep pace with our growth and bring beneficial inventory management services to more customers."
