Presto Products has started construction on an expansion of its plant in Waupaca, Wisconsin, with a completion date expected in July 2022, the company recently reported.
The long-planned project includes increasing the size of the state-of-the-art factory for room to grow in the future and to add rail access to handle increased production volumes.
“It is hard to believe that at this time in 2015, we submitted the paperwork to buy this building,” says Brad Hansen, president of Presto’s Specialty Products businesses, adding that the first line went live there in late 2016. “Today, we are proud to knock down these walls to make room by doubling the amount of space for the building.”
The 40,000-square-foot plant expansion will improve production and operations to meet growing consumer, brand, and packaging demand.
Presto is known for its press-to-close zipper and track-and-slider reclosable products for flexible packaging. Presto Products is a business unit of Reynolds Consumer Products.
