PBFY opens manufacturing facility in Tennessee
To better serve East Coast and Midwest customers, Brea, California-based PBFY has announced it is opening a new flexible packaging manufacturing and shipping site in Portland, Tennessee this month.
Residents of Portland can expect the same high quality working environment that is currently offered in the Brea location. CEO and founder of PBFY, Lyndsey Tidwell, stated that the company’s goal is to “invest in the area and offer full time employment to make the overall economy grow.” The new Tennessee employees are not the only ones who will benefit. After careful review of feedback, PBFY listened to their East Coast customers that wanted lower costs and expedited shipping. By expanding into Tennessee, PBFY will be able to offer timely services, brand recognition and product line growth.
The new 60,000-square foot facility will expand on the Brea site. Matt Bryant, president of PBFY, assures that the same level of customer follow-through and engagement will continue in the new facility, “our account executives are packaging experts that are engaged in the entire process, so our customers aren’t constantly getting handed off to customer service and other departments.”
Quality and timeliness are the goals in this expansion. In its founding, PBFY wanted to help businesses no matter how small or large to grow and expand in both their products and overall brand. As the company grows, with projections to go internationally in the next two to three years, customers can expect to see shorter shipping times, more high-quality products, and many new services. Chris Castro, PBFY’s Tennessee general manager, noted that the location will “help with speed and freight costs to Midwest and East Coast customers.”
