Milwaukee, WI (Jan. 26, 2017) – PAC Machinery, a leader in the heat sealing and flexible packaging industry revealed today that the company has completed plans for relocating their Converting Technology plant to a 72,000 square foot facility located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The new Converting Technology plant will enable the company to add converting and printing capacity. Converting Technology manufactures Rollbag™ brand pre-opened bags on a roll for automatic baggers, co-extruded poly bags for the mail order fulfillment industry, poly tubing, and specialty films. Greg Quinn, General Manager of Converting Technology, commented: “As we have outgrown our current manufacturing plant, our relocation is a planned opportunity for growth, innovation, and development. The move strengthens our commitment to meet or exceed our customer’s requirements.”

Job opportunities will benefit the community

As a result of doubling manufacturing capacity, the Converting Technology expansion creates a number of good jobs that will benefit the Milwaukee community. The new employees will join a team of experienced personnel as the expanded facility is in close proximity to the original plant in Menomonee Falls, WI. A number of jobs will be created as the enterprise plans for growth. The company anticipates new jobs in the following areas: Customer Service, Sales, Engineering, and Manufacturing.

Larger facility impacts key customer needs

Converting Technology’s growth is a result of quick turnaround times, high-quality products, and strong customer support.  This new location will allow Converting Technology to increase all of these metrics.  Added resources in equipment and personnel will drive these improvements along with improved workflow in production operations.  Converting Technology plans to shorten their already industry-leading turnaround times for custom products, including pre-opened bags on a roll, while delivering the quality and support our customers have come to expect.
