American Packaging Corporation (APC) intends to open a 275,000-square-foot manufacturing facility next year in Cedar City, Utah, creating more than 135 jobs.
APC purchased the land in October and officially broke ground in February, with a completion date expected in June 2023. The plant will include flexographic printing presses, laminating, preformed pouching, and finishing equipment.
The $100 million project is the family-owned company’s first location in the western United States, the company says in a news release.
“Our 1,200 APC employees are our family members. We treat them that way because we want them to succeed at their careers at APC and at home,” says APC CEO Peter Schottland.
