Elkhart, Indiana, based Welch Packaging, a multi-site family-owned business concentrated in the Midwest, has announced the expansion of corrugator operations with a newly acquired 98-inch Fosber Corrugator. The expansion will be housed at 4200 Industrial Blvd., in Indianapolis. Welch Packaging also has a converting plant located a few miles north of the new corrugator facility and expects to add at least 50 new jobs resulting from the expansion.
The new Fosber corrugator will expand Welch Packaging’s current production of corrugated products, which will then be used to create corrugated packaging for customers. The 98-inch corrugator will also enhance capabilities to produce specialty scoring profiles and additional coatings for Welch’s custom packaging solutions. With operations located in six Midwestern states, this expansion reinforces Welch’s commitment to growth.
”Welch Packaging has always focused on corrugated packaging solutions for our customers,” said Scott Welch, President and founder of Welch Packaging. “This new operation will enable us to improve the customer experience while continuing to make a difference for our associates and the communities in which we live.”
Welch Packaging serves markets across 16 locations and two distribution centers with nearly 1,300 associates.
