Core Competency

Elkhart, Indiana, based Welch Packaging, a multi-site family-owned business concentrated in the Midwest, has announced the expansion of corrugator operations with a newly acquired 98-inch Fosber Corrugator. The expan- sion will be housed at 4200 Industrial Blvd., in Indianapo- lis. Welch Packaging also has a converting plant located a few miles north of the new corrugator facility and expects to add at least 50 new jobs resulting from the expansion. The new Fosber corrugator will expand Welch Packag- ing’s current production of corrugated products, which will then be used to create corrugated packaging for custom- ers. The 98-inch corrugator will also enhance capabilities to produce specialty scoring profiles and additional coat- ings for Welch’s custom packaging solutions. With opera- tions located in six Midwestern states, this expansion rein- forces Welch’s commitment to growth. ”Welch Packaging has always focused on corrugated packaging solutions for our customers,” said Scott Welch, President and founder of Welch Packaging. “This new op- eration will enable us to improve the customer experience while continuing to make a difference for our associates and the communities in which we live.” Welch Packaging serves markets across 16 locations and two distribution centers with nearly 1,300 associates.
