ePac is using digital printing to disrupt the flexible packaging market, globally
ePac Flexible Packaging is to open ePac Seoul as the latest site in its global expansion, with manufacturing operations now across North America, Europe, Africa and Asia.
ePac Seoul is a partnership between ePac Holdings, ePac Holdings Asia, and South Korea-based CC Labs. Managing the operation will be Mr Kim Min-Choel. Mr Kim has served in executive positions with Sejoong Industry and as CEO at CC Labs. With past experience in flexible packaging and digital printing, Mr Kim is keen to bring ePac’s service delivery model to South Korea, beginning with ePac Seoul.
He said, ‘With small and medium-sized businesses accounting for 99% of all South Korean enterprises, 89% of employment, and strong government support, we’re excited to enter this market. ePac offers game-changing flexible packaging for brands that previously had limited options for sourcing their packaging. Our customers will no longer be limited to importing their packaging, purchasing far more than they need, or applying labels to blank pouches.
‘Our focus is on helping small brands grow with great packaging and our customers’ products stand out on retail shelves and portray an impressive image on e-commerce sites.’
ePac Flexible Packaging CEO Jack Knott said, ‘South Korea is an advanced country technologically, and local brands will benefit greatly from our all-digital flexible packaging manufacturing platform. In addition, QR code scan rates are among the highest in the world, so our smart packaging solution, ePacConnect, will provide brands new solutions for engaging with consumers, protecting their brand, and gaining new market insights.’
ePac Seoul is now open for order taking and will be located at 3F, Building C, 195-20, Jayumuyeok-gil, Baeksan-myeon, Gimje-si, Jeollabuk-do, Republic of Korea 54325, which is about 90 minutes outside of Seoul.
ePac Seoul is the latest site from the flexible packaging provider as it expands its network of production plants across the Asia-Pacific region. ePac Ghana has also recently been confirmed, with additional plants being opened across Europe and North America.
