Golden West Packaging to add new machines and people

City of Industry, CA-based Golden West Packaging Group has confirmed that Mark J. Favre has been named Chief Executive Officer, Brian McDonnell has been named Chief Financial Officer, and Doug Keim has been named Senior Vice President of Customer Experience.

The three executives will join the senior leadership team that includes Kelley Wenter, Chief Operating Officer; Eric Gordon, Chief Sales Officer; and Melissa Price, Head of People and Culture.

“Our plan is to continue to grow Golden West’s position as the premier packaging solutions supplier on the West Coast,” Favre said. “We will drive accelerated growth, provide customers with innovative and high-quality solutions, and expand our offerings and capabilities. Golden West has an impressive reputation and a dedicated team of employees. Brian, Doug and I are eager to help take the company to the next level of growth, quality and service.”

Golden West also confirmed significant investments in new equipment, including a new BOBST 64” MASTERFLUTE laminator to be installed in the company’s Sacramento facility, as well as several new machines to add printing, die-cutting and folder gluer capacity in Southern California, Northern California and the Pacific Northwest. These investments are in addition to the Heidelberg XL 162-6 large format printing press that was recently installed and commissioned in Sacramento.

“The addition of these new machines, along with other forthcoming plans, reflect our long-term growth strategy to invest in best-in-class equipment and technology across our entire manufacturing footprint up and down the West Coast,” said Wenter.

Gordon added, “We are thrilled to share this news with our valued customers and look forward to expanding on how these investments will support our customers’ future growth and success.”
