Nashville Box has officially kicked off manufacturing at its Lebanon, TN facility. Since announcing plans for the new operation in late 2021, Nashville Box has installed manufacturing equipment and scaled production capacities at its 100,000 sq ft facility.
The announcement comes as Nashville Box commissions both its single color 92″ x 190″ printer slotter with rotary die-cut unit and its two color 37″ x 98″ flexo folder gluer. These converting lines allow Nashville Box to supply customers with high-volume boxes ranging from the largest jumbo sizes to more standard shipping-sized boxes.
“Our team has done a remarkable job of achieving a safe startup in an exceptionally short period of time, allowing us to start producing quickly, meeting both current customer needs and allowing Nashville Box to serve growing market demand. It is an exciting time to be establishing manufacturing roots in Tennessee,” stated Scott Lawrence, CEO, Nashville Box (pictured left).
Led by COO, Derrick Wilson, the Nashville Box operations team is focused on serving customers, product quality, and the safety of employees. “From the beginning, we have had a commitment to manufacturing quality products and creating safe, enjoyable experiences for our employees and customers. Now that we have completed the first leg of equipment commissions and have started moving product, we can focus on optimizing and our continued expansion steps,” said Wilson.
With new capacity now online, Nashville Box is helping corrugated buyers gain relief from supply chain woes and long lead times.
“The corrugated market is extremely dynamic right now and that has given us opportunities to quickly grow. As we plan for our second phase of capital projects, we are watching key indicators at the national and regional level and are excited for what the future holds,” concluded Lawrence.
