The Chilean company Typack announced an investment of five million dollars (MDD) in its packaging plant located in Zapopan. Factory started operations in April 2021but it was inaugurated yesterday, after the recess forced by the pandemic.
“For us it is an honor to be able to celebrate this opening with our collaborators, clients, suppliers and allies. Our goal is to produce our packaging directly in Mexico, mainly because of the proximity to berry producers in the region,” said Felipe Dutilh, CEO of Typack.
The industrial warehouse covers five thousand square meters located in the San José del Astillero 2 industrial parkin the municipality of Zapopan, where more than 100 people operate daily.
In Jalisco, Typack manufactures 180 million units of clamshell packaging per year, andhe plan for 2023 is to double its production capacity, to do so a new investment of four million dollars will be made.
“With our production plant, the attention to our clients is closer, we are where the fruit that is going to be packed is grown, Mexico is experiencing a clear growth in berry production and that is our main reason for investing in Jalisco,” Dutilh added.
Typack began operations in Chile in 1984 and is the pioneer of clamshells, thermoformed one-piece packaging, used to transport blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, grapes, cherry tomatoes and other foods.
