GSC Packaging, a nationwide provider of turnkey contract packaging solutions, has been named the top Georgia Fast 40 company for the Large-Middle Market category by the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG), a global professional organization focused on middle-market growth, mergers and acquisitions and private investment. GSC Packaging is one of the largest contract packagers of powdered foods, drink mixes, supplements and diet products in the United States. GSC Packaging specializes in multiple forms of food contract packaging and secondary packaging solutions, including stick packs, pouches, large format pouches, vertical form fill seal pouches, and horizontal form fill seal pouches, among other popular flexible pouch formats.
The Georgia Fast 40 award is designed to honor the top 40 Georgia-based middle market companies that demonstrate the greatest growth in revenue and employment over the prior three years. Rankings are objectively based on three-year average growth in net revenue and employment with revenue growth accounting for 75 percent and employee growth accounting for 25 percent of the score. Georgia Fast 40 rankings include a Small-Middle Market category for companies with revenues of $15M to $60M and a Large-Middle Market category for companies with revenues of $60M to $500M. Honorees were presented at the Georgia Fast 40 Awards Dinner and Gala, which was held at the Intercontinental Hotel in Buckhead on Thursday, June 13, 2013.
“A company’s growth and success is dependent upon having an exemplary team of dedicated people who uphold GSC Packaging’s mission of providing the highest level of service to world-class food manufacturers,” said Bob Shapiro, CEO of GSC Packaging. “I am extremely proud of our team and what they have accomplished.”
To keep up with the company’s rapid growth, GSC Packaging recently moved to a 100,000-square-foot facility at 575 Wharton Drive in Atlanta. Extensive renovations of the facility have transformed the building into a custom, state-of-the-art food contract packaging facility. The new GSC Packaging facility features fifteen production lines, including seven horizontal form/fill/seal (FFS) lines, three six-lane stick pack packaging lines, as well as various semi-automatic, large format automatic, and secondary packaging and kitting lines. The new packaging facility also features a state-of-the-art layout and design, the latest air-handling technology, lot code tracking, real-time computerized inventory control, dust control and air-conditioned storage. The facility layout was custom designed to isolate products into separate suites that package only one specific product at a time to prevent cross-contamination. For added security, the facility also features cameras in each individual suite. Packaged products travel through small openings in the walls to separate secondary packaging areas, which further protects exposed products. In addition, the Atlanta location provides clients with strategic national distribution capabilities. For more information about GSC Packaging, visit http://www.gscpackaging.com.
