CHICAGO, July 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Berlin Packaging's Dangerous Goods division, a leading full-service supplier of packaging, labels and placards for hazardous and temperature-sensitive materials, has completed an expansion of its 80,000-square-foot warehouse in Houston, Texas. The new packaging assembly/production line provides customers in Gulf Coast states with significant savings on shipping costs and much faster transit times on packaging for dangerous goods and temperature-sensitive materials.
Joining more than 90 other Berlin Packaging sales and warehouse locations throughout North America, the enhanced Houston facility adds to the space previously dedicated to maintaining package inventory in the Gulf Coast for a wide array of customers, including those in the chemical, petroleum and fuel, pharmaceutical, and biotech industries. These sectors are all heavy users of packaging provided by the Dangerous Goods team.
Since 1982, Berlin Dangerous Goods has provided safe and secure shipping solutions to fulfill the company's promise to Compliance Made Easy. Berlin Dangerous Goods supplies more than 1,600 items, most of which are in-stock and ready to ship. The new, closer proximity to Gulf Coast customers, in combination with the company's 108 consecutive months of 99% on-time delivery, will help keep customers' supply chains running smoothly and cost-effectively.
"We have offered warehousing and logistics services in Houston and the Texas region for decades. Our new footprint will continue to optimize our service levels as well as meet constantly growing demand for our sophisticated packaging systems," said Larry Rydzewski, Chief Operating Officer of Berlin Packaging. "This production and assembly line in Houston is another example of our commitment to being America's preferred Hybrid Packaging Supplier."
Customers also have the option to house inventory at any Berlin Packaging location or near-site warehouse for increased proximity to their fillers or own facilities, or to have finished containers and closures drop-shipped directly from the factory to their preferred destinations.
More information on the new warehouse facility in Houston is available by calling 800.413.8867 or emailing Bill Barger, District Manager, at Bill.Barger@BerlinDangerousGoods.com.
