CHICAGO, Nov. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Qorpak, a division of Berlin Packaging and a longstanding trusted provider of laboratory containers and supplies, today announced the grand opening of its new warehouse and assembly operation in Clinton, Pennsylvania, a Pittsburgh suburb. The facility, three times the size of Qorpak's previous warehouse, enables faster deliveries to customers while supporting the business's rapid growth.
Over the past ten years, Qorpak has experienced substantial expansion, including a four-fold increase in customers served. Its new facility will support and extend the company's growth by allowing it to increase on-hand stock offerings while adding new product lines critical to the laboratory market. Qorpak offerings include plastic, glass and metal bottles and containers as well as closures, dispensing systems, jugs, vials, pails, and lab supplies from more than 125 manufacturers.
In 2010, Qorpak was acquired by Berlin Packaging as part of its purchase of All-Pak, Inc. Also acquired in the transaction was Dangerous Goods, which specializes in packaging systems for the safe shipment of hazardous and temperature-sensitive materials. Qorpak and Dangerous Goods will share space in the new Clinton warehouse, located at 2300 Sweeney Drive; the Class A facility, which totals 300,000 square feet, is operated by Berlin Packaging.
"Our expanded warehouse allows us to double-down on our 'Customer Thrill' commitment," said Karen Brooks, Vice President of Qorpak. "We are now operating even more efficiently and more effectively out of our new space, and I know our customers will tangibly benefit from the service improvements this move generates."
With thousands of available items, including over 6,000 assembled kits, Qorpak is a leader in both laboratory supplies and inventory management. Offering a variety of capacities and sizes of popular products, the team also designs and manufactures components customized to specific applications. Qorpak then goes on to inventory items for customers, delivering with 99+% on-time accuracy year after year. The company will also pre-clean items for use and re-pack product into re-shippers and case quantities for convenience needs.
In 2015, Qorpak handled more than 30,000 customer orders from sectors ranging from analytical labs to water/wastewater treatment facilities and all sectors in between, including biotech, chemical, education, industrial, food and beverage, petrochemical and pharmaceutical. The company does business through its own sales and service team, through its catalog and website, and through well-known laboratory distributors.
In addition to its Pittsburgh operations, Qorpak utilizes other Berlin Packaging warehousing facilities throughout North America and maintains additional sales offices in California, Florida and Massachusetts.
