Indiana's Parish Manufacturing expands capacity

  • PDF
Parish Manufacturing Inc. recently invested over $1.5 million to purchase a new liquid bag-in-box manufacturing line, other machinery and revamp a 3,500 square foot space to accommodate the line.
 
“It’s all part of our growth. In addition to buying new machinery we had to create a new product room because we were out space,” said Daniel Cunningham, president and CEO of the Indianapolis-based company, in a telephone interview. 
 
Parish installed epoxy floors, wall coverings and even cleanable ceiling tiles to be handle Grade A dairy packaging. It also moved some warehouse space out of the current 28,000 square foot facility into leased space.
 
He said the company recently completed the second part of a three-phase expansion. When it is finished, employment will rise to 60, from 40. In the first phase, Parish started with new presses and automation. The final phase is still in planning and may take 12-18 months.
 
Cunningham said sales are up 40 percent this year, and that the liquid bag-in-box has grown in dairy packaging, as well as other areas such as wine, syrup, food services and non-food like cleaning and sanitary products.
 
“We do most of our own injection molding and some specialized subassembly lines that make parts that go on the bag machinery,” he said. The latest changes will allow additional bag configurations and such options as dual fitment bags and additional delta seal capabilities.
