SeaCa Packaging, owned by Seattle Tacoma Box Company, an over 125-year-old six generation family owned and operated company specializing in packaging, today announced its expansion to Greater Phoenix with the groundbreaking of a manufacturing plant in Surprise, Arizona.
A wholly owned subsidiary company, SeaCa Packaging was founded in 1991. The company specializes in polypropylene carton manufacturing and the plant in Greater Phoenix is scheduled to be completed by April 2019, marking the eighth location between the two companies. With plans to hire for 65 phase one jobs, this facility anticipates a $17M capital investment into Greater Phoenix and will serve its growing customer base nationwide.
“’Yesterday’s methods on today’s jobs will put us out of business tomorrow.’ This was a quote my brother stated over a half century ago, yet it still remains just as true,” says Ferd Nist, President of Seattle Tacoma Box Company. “As a c,orporation we still embrace this mantra, which pushes us to continually develop innovative products. We have run our business for the past 130 years on the basis of providing only the best for our customers, which has shown successful in the many years of continued relationships with the farmers and fishermen.”
