ePac Flexible Packaging’s operation in Ghana is set to open in September, having been announced in late 2020.

ePac Flexible Packaging was established in 2016 in the US, and today operates manufacturing plants around the world. West Africa is one of the company’s latest sites to come on stream, and furthers its footprint globally. Initially, whilst a dedicated ePac plant was being built in Accra, Ghana, all orders for the Africa were to be fulfilled by the ePac UK plant in Silverstone.

At that time, Virag Patel, ePac Flexible Packaging chief operating officer, identified ePac Ghana as, ‘a base for further expansion on the African continent.’

ePac West Africa is to be locally managed by Victor Sosah, a Ghanaian entrepreneur with extensive experience in flexible packaging. He said, ‘Our focus here with ePac Ghana will be to help local and regional small and medium-sized businesses be successful and to make a difference in the communities we serve.’

ePac West Africa is to located at Blu Gate Plaza on the Spintex Road in Accra. The new facility, built to international standards, is a Grade A production zone and is a short drive from Kotoka International Airport.
