Rand-Whitney Celebrates Construction

Rand-Whitney President and CEO, Nick Smith was joined by PROCON Managing Directors John Stebbins and Jennifer Stebbins Thomas and other members of the design build and subcontractor teams for a beam signing, topping off ceremony at the site of what will soon be Rand-Whitney’s largest facility. The raising of the beam represents a major milestone in the construction of the state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. When fully operational in the Spring of 2023, the new packaging facility will manufacture 350 million boxes annually.

Mr. Smith opened the event discussing the importance of the new manufacturing building for the company to meet growing demand while providing the most efficient, cost-effective services possible for their customers. The world class facility represents Rand-Whitney’s largest investment in equipment and capacity. The state-of-the-art, sustainable building will feature the industry’s most efficient robotics and automation equipment.

“This milestone represents an exciting moment in the history of our company,” said Nick Smith. “Rand-Whitney Container remains committed to investing in improvements that will benefit and support our valued customers. Today is also a milestone in our partnership with the Boylston community and we look forward to being a big part of this community for decades to come. I want to thank the entire PROCON design and construction team for creating this land-mark moment.”

Rand-Whitney collaborated with PROCON as the design-builder for the packaging facility as well as another 300,000 square foot warehouse on the site expected to be completed and leased out by Rand-Whitney in late Spring of 2023.

Rand-Whitney has operated in Massachusetts since 1938 and is one of several companies owned by New England Patriot’s Owner Robert Kraft. The largest independent corrugated packaging manufacture in New England, the company is a leader in environmental responsibility for the packing industry and its vertical integration will allow the facility to manufacture packaging that uses a very high percentage of post-consumer waste, using 100% post-consumer waste linerboard produced in the company’s own mill in Connecticut.

For over 75 years, Rand-Whitney has been a leading innovator in the packaging industry. They are an independent, privately-owned company with a unique, family values approach to the way they do business. As a member of the Kraft Group companies, Rand-Whitney prides itself on delivering only the highest levels of quality and service to all business partners.

Supporting their strength in the market is their ability to service an entire company’s packaging needs while providing individual support along the way. Starting with initial design to production quality samples, their goal is to provide their customers with a quality packaging product and topnotch customer service and support.

Rand-Whitney plans on hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony in May of 2023 for their new Boylston, MA facility. Scan the QR code below to see how our build site is progressing.
