East and West Unite: Welsh Packaging Solutions to Adopt Ernest Packaging Solutions Name and Move to New Facility
October 02, 2013
Effective October 1, 2013, Welsh Packaging Solutions, currently based in Youngsville, N.C., will change its name to Ernest Packaging Solutions — uniting our packaging family in name and spirit on both coasts.
The newest member of the Ernest Family of Companies will also be moving its operations and services to a new 154,000 square-foot facility, located at 501 Innovation Ave. in Morrisville in mid-November.
Because of our commitment to the region, we’ve had great success partnering with customers which has created a need for more space. We want to thank the community for making this possible! The new location of Ernest Packaging Solutions-Morrisville will continue to provide on-site design and testing, a wood shop, custom package development, repackaging capabilities, foam fabrication and kitting, and full-sourced packaging supplies.
Since being acquired by Ernest Packaging Solutions in November 2012, the company has increased its workforce by more than 20 percent and plans to continue hiring more personnel as the company opens its new facility.
“Our new facility in Morrisville will provide our customers with nationwide access to innovative custom packaging solutions, off-the-shelf packaging products, janitorial and safety products, custom wood crating and foam fabrication,” said Tim Wilson, president of Ernest Packaging Solutions. “With this expansion, we are building upon the traditions that have made Ernest Packaging Solutions an industry leader, including the on-site innovation lab, breakthrough packaging technologies and our team of resourceful, creative consultants.”
