“PAC is excited to expand manufacturing to the West Coast,” said James A. Boshaw, president and CEO of PAC Worldwide. “We see fantastic opportunities in protective packaging and small parcel mailers for a wide range of customers and industries. Our plant in Phoenix puts us in a position to best serve those opportunities and provides a foundation for future growth.”
With more than 700 people currently employed, PAC Worldwide plans to grow with the addition of more than 50 jobs in the new Phoenix facility. Shipping directly to dozens of countries, PAC Worldwide reaches thousands of customers in the courier, ecommerce, pharma and banking industries.
“Adding a new, global manufacturer like PAC Worldwide to our community helps the Phoenix economy take another step in the right direction,” said Mayor Greg Stanton. “I also admire PAC Worldwide’s commitment to using recycled materials to produce products that can then be recycled again. That shows doing the right thing for the environment is also good for business.”
Chris Camacho, president & CEO of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council added, “The quick access to California creates an advantageous market for manufacturing, coupled with a large talented technical labor force and pro-business environment found in Greater Phoenix. We join the city of Phoenix in welcoming PAC Worldwide to the region and look forward to seeing their growth within the market.”
“I’m excited to welcome PAC Worldwide to 4570 W Lower Buckeye Rd. where they will be leasing a building with approximately 166,000 SF and bringing additional jobs to the local area,” said District 7 Councilman Michael Nowakowski. “This company’s move into the area is a reflection of the growing attraction and excitement the West Valley and Estrella areas have to offer organizations.”
