Sturtevant, WI—(October 18, 2021) ND Packaging has officially opened its 350,000 Sq. Ft. corrugated packaging plant in southeastern Wisconsin. At full operation, this new facility will add more than 80 full-time job to the region.
Today marks the beginning of a new a new and experience-backed venture into the growing packaging industry. The company is excited to bring jobs to the community and add growth to import Wisconsin business sector. Furthermore, ND Packaging is thrilled to start producing high-quality corrugated sheets and containers and provide exceptional solutions for customers in the Chicagoland and greater Wisconsin marketplace.
When the project began in the new facility in late 2019, no one anticipated the global pandemic just around the corner. Nevertheless, the company worked to ensure the necessary precautions were – and continue to be – taken to keep employees safe and operations running smoothly. “While it has certainly been an endeavor, essentially starting from scratch has its distinct advantages,” said Ken Liu, CEO of ND Packaging and its affiliate ND Paper who, along with and a dedicated team of hard working and talented professionals, including Jon Hospodar, the new General Manager of the Sturtevant facility, has spearheaded this initiative. “We acquired the space and have been filling it with the right equipment and the right people to provide a value-added solution for our customers,” Mr. Liu continued.
Beyond the talented and experienced team at ND Packaging, a key component of the company’s advantage resides up the road in Biron, Wisconsin. ND Packaging’s sister company, ND Paper, operates a paper mill that has recently begun the production of linerboard and corrugating medium, the papers used in box manufacturing. “This translates to a benefit for our customers and our business, as ND Packaging is assured a secure stream of high-quality and sustainable materials to manufacture its corrugated products,” GM Hospodar said.
Every step along the way has been intentional. “From our machines to our products, and from the industry experts we have hired to our strategic location along the I-94 corridor, all of it has been done with one thing in mind: to give a distinct advantage to our customers. When we accomplish that goal, everyone thrives,” GM Hospodar continued.
