A packaging company based in New York state is moving its headquarters to Charlotte to be closer to its manufacturing operations.
Genpak Corp., which currently has 62 people in its Glens Falls location, is looking for office space that could eventually hold about 100 employees, president Kevin Kelly said Monday. The company expects to staff the headquarters with a mix of relocated employees and new hires, he said.
The company already has manufacturing and research and development operations in Charlotte, including on Westinghouse Boulevard. Genpak plans to look for office space in areas such as Ballantyne and the Coliseum area, Kelly said.
Genpak is a privately held company owned by the Canada-based Jim Pattison Group. It manufactures food packaging such as foam meat trays for supermarkets and plastic microwaveable containers.
