In July, Tri-Pac, Inc., a contract filling and packaging firm, officially cut the ribbon to signify its relocation from Vandalia, Michigan to South Bend to better align with its growth plans. Their state-of-the-art facility is located on the corner of Nimtz Parkway and Kenmore Street. The company bought the building previously occupied by Plastic Molding Manufacturing Inc.
Phase 1 of their growth plan is an $8 million investment to expand their strategic focus into manufacturing of consumer health care products, including OTC (over-thecounter), medical devices and personal care products.
The company currently employs approximately 40 people with the addition of 20 new jobs over the next few years expected, with the jobs paying anywhere from $18 to $33
Founded in 2009 by Vikram Shah, the company contracts with multinational manufacturers of liquid cosmetics and chemicals—i.e. aerosols—to fill and package custom orders. Their mission is to provide the highest quality contract development and manufacturing and chemical management services to marketers of aerosol, liquid and specialty packaged products while achieving results that protect and increase the value of the customer’s brand equity and theirs. Tri-Pac believes that integrity is one of the most important characteristics a company can possess. The Tri-Pac team, management and associates work very hard to focus on quality, integrity, sustainability and continuous improvement.
At the end of 2018, the company successfully upgraded its Quality Systems to encompass the current good manufacturing practices as dictated by the 21 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), continuing their "customerfocused, quality-driven" policy.
