American Packaging To Open New Center Of Excellence

American Packaging Corporation (APC) will open its new $100 million, 275,000-square-foot Center of Excellence manufacturing facility in Cedar City, Utah, in June 2023. The new operation will eventually add more than 135 jobs to Iron County.

 APC purchased the land in October 2021, and officially broke ground on February 8, 2022, during a groundbreaking ceremony with civic leaders and company officials. The new facility is expected to be fully operational in 2023, and include flexographic-printing presses, laminating, preformed pouchmaking and finishing equipment. APC will hire 75 new APC team members as part of phase one, with career opportunities in manufacturing, production, engineering and administration.

Various options were considered for the new facility during the site-selection process for APC’s first location in the western United States. Cedar City will serve as a strategic logistical location for both trucking and rail, providing excellent access to raw materials, as well as shipping to current and future customers.

The Cedar City project is the first of three planned phases. APC will begin recruitment and hiring efforts for the new facility this year.
