NEENAH, Wis. — Menasha Packaging on Wednesday announced that construction is underway on a more than 126,000-sq.-ft. manufacturing and office space expansion at Menasha Packaging’s Lakeville, Minn., facility. The expansion will increase the facility by 50% and create Menasha Packaging’s first location with design, production and fulfillment all under one roof.
The expansion consists of an additional 121,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing space and 4,780 sq. ft. of office space. The manufacturing area addition will be used for kitting and fulfillment, and will include a rail dock. Upon completion, material flow will be simpler and require much less handling. The office space addition will house a new design center and customer collaboration area.
“The manufacturing and office space expansion to Menasha Packaging’s Lakeville plant will help the facility deliver faster service and better quality for our customers,” said Greg Theis, west region VP Menasha Packaging. “The Lakeville expansion also positions Menasha Packaging for continued growth, while providing the Lakeville team long-term flexibility to respond to customers’ changing needs in packaging and merchandising solutions.”
The Lakeville facility manufactures corrugated boxes, as well as designs and produces displays for consumer packaged goods companies.
Construction on the two additions is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
