Franklin Mountain Capital (FMC), a Scottsdale-based company providing long-term capital and operating expertise to small and midsize companies in the Southwestern US, has confirmed the launch of Franklin Mountain Packaging (FMP).
FMP, based in Santa Teresa, New Mexico, will produce corrugated sheets (in B, C, E and F flute, plus doublewall combinations) and microflutes (F and N flute) along with providing high-quality digital printing services.
Paul Foster, Chairman of FMP and FMC, commented, “We are excited about the formation and potential of FMP. The growth for specialized corrugated packaging continues to be strong, and we believe FMP has an offering for capitalizing on this growth.”
Foster continued, “The Santa Teresa location gives FMP an advantage in servicing the growing Southwestern US market, along with providing corrugated products and services to customers in Mexico, particularly the maquiladoras along the Texas/Mexico border.”
FMP will initially focus on the food and beverage, healthcare, electronics, e-commerce, technology, aerospace and automotive industries, providing customers with corrugated sheets, graphics, design consulting, and displays. Future opportunities will be directed towards innovative packaging solutions focusing on lighter weight and more efficient packaging solutions for customers in the Southwest and Mexico.
