Clamco Breaks Ground on Expansion in Berea, Ohio

SAN RAFAEL, CA and BEREA, OH--(Marketwired - September 20, 2016) - PAC Machinery, a leader in the heat sealing and flexible packaging industry, announced today that they have broken ground on their new Clamco product development and manufacturing facility expansion. The 26,000-square-foot expansion adds needed manufacturing capacity to their existing sales, product development and manufacturing facility in Berea, Ohio. PAC Machinery President and CEO, Serge Berguig said: "The demand for Clamco shrink wrapping equipment and automatic baggers has been growing steadily, and our Berea, Ohio facility offered the most logical location to add manufacturing capability." Additional manufacturing facilities are located in Wisconsin and California. "Our strategy is to concentrate our packaging industry expertise in key locations, where product development, manufacturing and sales teams can work together more closely," adds Berguig. Much of the expansion will be devoted to the manufacture of specialized baggers used in the fast-growing mail order and package fulfillment industry.

Expansion to bring needed opportunity to the community

It is estimated that the Clamco expansion will add nearly thirty jobs over the next three to five years. Clamco expects the company will retain some of the highly skilled employees who will lose their Berea-area jobs as a result of the impending shutdown of a local manufacturing concern.
