“We’re excited to launch this new site to serve our customers even better,” says Nosco President Craig Curran. “It has been a long journey to find the right place for Nosco’s future, but we are certain this location will set us up for growth and success."
Located along the I-94 corridor, the 170,000-sq-ft facility is situated in the heart of Pleasant Prairie’s Lakeview Corporate Park – centralized between the Chicago and Milwaukee metro areas. It will be home to nearly 300 employees.
Nosco’s Gurnee and Bridgeview, IL, facilities will remain operational throughout this expansion and beyond to support existing carton, label, literature and commercial print business. Nosco will continue to operate its other facilities in Lockport, NY; Bristol, PA; and Carrollton, TX. Nosco sites in Waukegan, IL, and the previous Haapanen Brothers sites, acquired earlier in 2020, will close.
The addition of the new facility will build on Nosco’s existing regional packaging operations, while allowing for:
- An enhanced customer and employee experience.
- Supply chain efficiency and operational flow.
- Workforce consolidation and development.
- Facility optimization and automation.
Preparations for the new flagship facility and corporate headquarters are already underway, and final moves are slated for completion by July 2021.
