JBM Packaging Opens Cincinnati, Ohio, Operations

JBM Packaging, a manufacturer of eco-friendly, flexible packaging solutions, opened a new 40,000 square foot location in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio. The project is expected to create 30 jobs in the next 18 months.

According to company officials, the facility will allow JBM to further expand its manufacturing capabilities while also adding new contract packaging services. The location will also support the growth of the company’s Fair Chance hiring program.

“With so many businesses experiencing labor challenges, our Fair Chance hiring program has kept our hiring pipeline filled while also allowing us to expand production,” said Marcus Sheanshang, President and CEO. “This new downtown location provides the space we need to add new equipment and services. It also provides many of our Fair Chance team members with easier access to work and resources provided through our partner organizations. It’s a win for our company, our partners and the city of Cincinnati.”

In addition to its eco-friendly packaging production, JBM’s new services will include bagging, cartoning, assembly/kitting and filling. With the goal of helping their customers streamline their fulfillment processes, these services will enable businesses to ship and deliver higher quality packaged products more efficiently.

“JBM has been a forward thinking and true partner in providing our clients with meaningful pathways for economic mobility,” said Johnmark Oudersluys, Executive Director, CityLink Center. “As we continue to develop intentional pathways for our neighbors and companies to thrive, we look forward to working with other organizations that want to explore solutions for their business and our community.”
