Opportunity Houston

Accredo Packaging, Inc., recently opened its new 200,000-square-foot state-of-the-art manufacturing facility on Cardinal Meadows Drive in Sugar Land. The facility is an ecofriendly, green manufacturing plant that is the first of its kind in the state of Texas. The project was recently selected as a finalist for the Houston Business Journal’s 2010 Landmark Awards in the Industrial category.

The project broke ground on November 16, 2007 and was completed in June 2009. The impact of this project includes more than $60 million in new capital investment and 60 new jobs for Sugar Land.

Accredo Packaging, Inc., is on the forefront in the development of sustainable flexible packaging solutions. The new Sugar Land facility was designed for LEED Silver certification. This highly efficient production facility and the company’s expertise enables the company to convert traditional polymer resins to produce high-barrier packaging solutions (at reduced gauges), using fewer VOCs, less energy, less waste and less water. This equates to less packaging, reduced cost and reduced greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Accredo Packaging is committed to the use of renewable energy with 100 percent wind generated electrical power. The company also focuses on environmental and community-oriented initiatives and implementing recycling programs internally with customers.
