On behalf of McKinley Packaging, CBRE announced the ground-breaking of a 500,000-square-foot corrugated box plant in Lancaster, Texas.
The project broke ground on Feb. 1 with an anticipated completion date of November 2022. The plant will add about 125 new jobs in the South Dallas submarket.
Steve Berger and Ann Huntington with CBRE in Dallas brokered the sale of the land.
This facility will be used to manufacture corrugated boxes, which have seen a huge surge in demand due to the growth of e-commerce and companies that now offer direct-to-doorstep shipping. After looking at locations in Louisiana and Oklahoma, McKinley Packaging selected Lancaster for their next packaging plant due to Dallas-Fort Worth’s central location as well as direct rail line access and the amount of land available.
McKinley Packaging is a leader in sustainable paper-based products and packaging in the United States and Mexico.
This will be McKinley Packaging’s fifth packaging plant in the U.S. with two additional plants in Baja California, Mexico.
