14 September 2017
Larson Packaging Company is finishing major improvements to its Milpitas California manufacturing plant. The $1.5+M expansion includes 3 new covered canopies, a new warehouse and two loading docks as well as repaving and adding new stormwater treatment and ADA pathways. Overall, the Company has about doubled its covered manufacturing space, improved workflow, and vastly improved receiving and shipping for internal purposes and to customers’ benefit. The warehouse creates a new environment for storing finished goods as well as raw materials, staging for shipping, and for a much cleaner and secure environment for in-house pack jobs. But mostly, the expansion has allowed the Company to dedicate more space to its growing rack crate business and to bring in new foam fabrication equipment to develop this important aspect of customer’s industrial packaging.Additionally solar power and and new LED lighting for the factory floor have been installed. “The expansion and improvements have really improved our workflow and helped us get more lean. We have more and better manufacturing space, work more efficiently, and load and unload both our and customers’ trucks much easier and faster,” reports Plant Manager Abraham Esquivel.
