Alpha Packaging Continues Expansion

January 23, 2013

Ten months into a year that promises double-digit growth for Alpha Packaging, the company is completing the installation of three additional blow molding machines, bringing to 20, the total number of machine installations in 2012. The additions and upgrades support Alpha’s strategy of offering duplicate blow sets across its North American manufacturing footprint, so customers can order bottles from locations closest to their fillers and expansion of its ability to capture new growth across key segments.

While some of the new machines replaced older, less efficient equipment, Alpha will have a net gain of 12 machines and $35 million in additional capacity compared to where it started the year, it said. By Dec. 31, Alpha’s manufacturing footprint will include 180 machines operating at seven North American manufacturing sites and one plant in Europe.

According to Alpha’s president and chief executive officer Jeff Kellar, it is one of the few North American companies in the packaging industry that is reinvesting in new equipment and capacity. “We are working closely in partnership with key customers to invest in the technologies and blow molds that support their growth,” Kellar said. “With this additional capacity, we’ve increased our ability to serve our primary markets such as nutritional, pharmaceutical and personal care. We’ve also dramatically expanded the number of products we can offer to the food, household and automotive chemical segments. Our continued expansion reinforces our commitment to offer the best quality and speed to market with one of the largest portfolios of stock and custom bottles in the industry.”
