Crowley-based JohnPac Inc. has opened a distribution center in central Houston, the company announced in a news release.

The industrial packaging firm says new 50,000-square-foot location at 1219- A North Post Oak is designed to support existing customers’ needs and ongoing growth in the Texas market.

JohnPac makes daily deliveries into the greater Houston market from its Louisiana warehouse, “but we also understand the need to adapt to our customers’ needs by providing local support for security of supply and emergency same-day delivery capabilities,” the company notes in the release.

JohnPac, which has been in business for 54 years, manufactures polypropylene from granulate to end product, creating everything from yarns to fabrics for products like bulk bags, small poly weave bags and BOPP bags.

The company has more than 200,000 square feet of distribution space in Crowley, which enables it to offer shipping of in-stock items within 24 hours.
