Fox Packaging™ Announces Capital Investment to Upgrade Facilities
- by Eva Roethler
MCALLEN, TX - Fox Packaging™ has announced a capital investment to upgrade its facility by June 2017 to enhance its customer service. The second-generation, family-owned company aims to meet evolving industry needs through faster production times and saving energy costs to produce each bag.
“We highly value the long-lived relationships we have with our customers, and intend to continue to put them first as we evolve as a company,” said Craig Fox, Vice President of Fox Packaging, according to a press release. “We are committed to bringing the industry the best solutions, which fuels our passion for innovation to create more efficient machines and effective packaging.”
Along with plans to expand its production facility, the company is investing in more efficient printing and conversion machines, delivering on the company’s promise to meet tight lead times, even during the most demanding peak season volume.
All Fox Packaging bags are also 100% recyclable, which the company prides itself on delivering, both to partners and to consumers looking for more sustainable packaging. The company’s new printer, press, and conversion machines will continue this commitment by increasing productivity and saving on energy costs to produce each bag.
This is one of the many ways Fox Packaging continues to be the innovator in flexible packaging technology. In 2010, the company pioneered a study with Michigan State University to test the effectiveness of their original light-blocking technology potato bag – Ultra-Shield®. The conclusions from the study allowed Fox Packaging to introduce the industry to a high-quality poly-mesh bag that prevents nearly 100% of visible light and 90% of ultraviolet light, dramatically decreasing potato greening and ensuring a longer shelf life.
