2021 was a strong year for the company, again seeing sales growth in excess of 50% YoY, and an increase in production capacity of over 30%. In North America new plants were successfully opened in Portland, Toronto, and Kansas City, and internationally in the UK, France, Poland, and Australia. ePac now operates 17 plants in North America and 6 more in Europe and Asia Pacific.

To provide easy access to ePac’s services the company has begun to roll-out its own e-commerce platform, coupled with web-to-print and automated workflow. These technological advancements are unique to ePac and will greatly simplify how customers order flexible packaging while opening up ePac’s services to new market segments.
The company will also launch several new flexible packaging product lines, as well as an expanded roll-out of its connected packaging solution, ePacConnect.
