Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 02, 2013
GSC Packaging, a nationwide provider of turnkey contract packaging solutions, has moved to a 100,000-square-foot facility to keep up with the company’s rapid growth. GSC Packaging provides food contract packaging and secondary packaging solutions for powdered food products, drink mixes, supplements, and diet products. The company specializes in stick packs, pouches, large format pouches, vertical form fill seal pouches, and horizontal form fill seal pouches, among other popular flexible pouch formats.
Under the leadership of CEO Bob Shapiro, GSC Packaging has experienced rapid growth since 2008, growing from a handful of employees to 300 employees. As a result of its rapid growth, GSC Packaging moved from its previous location at 3715 Atlanta Industrial Parkway to the new location at 575 Wharton Drive in Atlanta, Georgia. Extensive renovations of the facility, led by Sandy Epstein of Sanford Epstein and Associates, PC, Architects, have transformed the building into a custom, state-of-the-art food contract packaging facility. The new facility is now open and operational.
“Company growth doesn’t happen without a team of excellent employees working daily to provide superb customer service to every client. The new state-of-the-art GSC Packaging facility is a reflection and a celebration of our team’s dedication to providing the best customer service possible to today’s world-class food manufacturers,” said Bob Shapiro, CEO of GSC Packaging.
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. In addition, the Atlanta location provides food manufacturers with strategic national distribution capabilities.
GSC Packaging goes above and beyond industry standards to improve food safety and quality, often borrowing best practices from the more stringent pharmaceutical packaging industry. For instance, 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. In addition, packaged products travel through small openings in the walls to separate secondary packaging areas, which further protects exposed products.
GSC Packaging is a nationwide provider of turnkey contract packaging and secondary packaging solutions for powdered food products, drink mixes, supplements, and diet products. The company specializes in stick packs, the fastest growing single-serve packaging in use today, as well as stand up and other popular flexible pouch formats. With state-of-the-art manufacturing and warehouse facilities, innovative technologies, experienced staff, and an extensive offering of services including fulfillment, warehousing, and delivery, GSC Packaging works in close partnership with clients to develop packaging solutions that meet all their product preparation and presentation needs.
