On the Way Up

Storopack Inc.'s growth has resulted in a new plant with 25 new employees

Storopack Inc., a worldwide leader in packaging materials and systems, has added new positions to stay on top of its game.

The company's growth has resulted in the addition of a new $6 million plant in the Springdale area, which will function 24 hours a day seven days a week with 25 new employees.

The factory will manufacture polyethylene film and convert craft paper for sale with packaging machines throughout the United States.

"This expansion is due to the growth of our product lines with vertical integration into polyethylene," says John Mellott, CEO of Storopack.

However, Storopack is not limited to just Cincinnati businesses. It has an international presence with locations in Europe and Asia to ensure consistent focus on customer requirements in local markets.

Storopack's goals are to keep a step a head of the demand and to develop future-oriented solutions, focusing on continued growth to meet the customer demands.

"If we continue with product development along with technical sales and service training, this company can only go up," Mellott observes.
