Torrance, CA (PRWEB) December 3, 2008
AVC Corporation, the Torrance, California based environmental packager, has announced that it has expanded its production facilities in China by adding two new key operations in Shenzhen China. While continuing with its operation in Chaozhou, China which opened in 2006, AVC has two new facilities in the key manufacturing city of Shenzhen which allow quicker access to the key container port.
Once known as the 'backdoor to China', Shenzhen has now become the main manufacturing city in Southern China. Although AVC's Chaozhou facility was only 5 hours away from Shenzhen, it became a necessity to expand to Shenzhen, now the second largest container port in China behind Shanghai. The new facilities allow clients to have shorter distances to AVC's packaging facilities and of course quick access to the port for immediate shipment.
AVC opened its first Chinese facility in 2006 to accommodate the demand of many of its clients who required either packaging material to be made more cheaply in China, or required their products to be packaged in China. AVC responded by opening it's Chaozhou plant which handled all phases of packaging including thermoforming, printing, laminating, silk screening, injection molding, and, of course packaging. The two new Shenzhen facilities will also be multifaceted and give clients the entire spectrum of AVC services.
"Having everything done all under one roof is a trademark of AVC which proudly offers to its clients everything from design concepts in packaging to shipping the finished product to the retailer," said Moshe Begim the president of AVC. "We naturally look to our Chinese operations to mirror what we can do at our USA facility."
AVC has concentrated on sustainable packaging for years with a goal to produce packaging products that are environmentally sensitive, using recycled materials, reducing plastic content, eliminating non-recyclable materials and yet be able to produce an even more aesthetically pleasing package.
AVC the "one stop" solution provider with packing experience going back over 30 years, is a member of the Wal-Mart/Sam's Packaging Sustainable Value Network and a packager to fortune 500 manufacturers and retailers who have implemented AVC's innovative packaging solutions as their new packaging format.
"The best part of our three Chinese facilities", continues Begim, "is that all three can produce our unique Environmental Rigid Blister (ERB TM) package, and the Enviropack ™, both eco-friendly cost effective alternatives to the standard clamshell." Made from a combination of plastic, blister board and corrugated, the AVC package reduces the plastic usage in old style clamshells by over 50%, replaces PVC with eco-friendly PET, avoids cross-contamination, and allows for 100% recycling of all the packaging components. Furthermore the attractive design reduces cubic utilization, product package ratios and transportation costs.
"Global clients can access all our facilities through our single http://www.avccorp.com website and get the same service and product that they can expect from our USA facility," said Begim. He also said that he expects to have a deal to open a facility in Shanghai before the end of the year.
