March 18, 2021 - Acme Corrugated Box Co. announced that it has broken ground on a large expansion of their existing 250,000 square foot facility in Hatboro, Pennsylvania.
The multimillion-dollar expansion includes an additional 80,000 square feet of manufacturing space that will allow for a 50% increase in manufacturing capacity.
According to the company, the expansion will provide room for a new high-speed 110" corrugator, a WIP system unique to the United States and the total automation of sheet transfer to converting machine centers.
"This expansion demonstrates our commitment to our overall growth and enhanced sophistication of the company," said Bob Cohen, President of Acme Corrugated Box. "It will allow us to increase manufacturing capacity, further embrace innovation of new products and flute profiles, and have a greater ability to serve our clients."
The new space will also allow for 50% more roll stock inventory area, as well as new, state of the art, training facilities, to support Acme's growing operations.
The next phase of the expansion will bring on additional converting equipment.
"With the expansion, we are able to maintain our independent structure in a highly consolidated industry," Cohen said. "This commitment to growth allows us to provide new job opportunities for our employees and our community, and to continue to be a main supplier of corrugated products in the region."
Construction on the expansion will continue throughout 2021, with completion expected sometime in the 1st quarter of 2022.
