Gateway Packaging will invest $13.2 million to expand its manufacturing operations and locate its official headquarters in White House, TN. The packaging manufacturer will create 50 new jobs in Robertson County. In addition to those new jobs, Gateway will retain 100 jobs from a recently acquired company in White House.
“The Gateway Packaging White House facility represents the newest expansion for the company and incorporates the latest state of the art technology of printing and converting assets in the industry,” said Gateway Packaging CFO Joe Italiano. “In addition to manufacturing flexible packaging, the White House facility will become the new headquarters location for administrative functions of the company. Omar Abuaita, CEO of Gateway, and I are extremely thankful for the exceptional cooperation and support from the State of Tennessee and those involved in assisting the company in its expansion in Tennessee.”
Gateway Packaging Company manufactures flexible paper and plastic packaging products focused on pet food and treats as well as the specialty human food market. The company works with the largest manufacturers in these growing markets to solve their flexible packaging problems.
Gateway Packaging will be taking over an existing facility in White House to make room for new equipment and will make this the location for its headquarters. With this expansion, the company will be better equipped to serve its U.S. customers.
“I want congratulate Gateway on choosing to expand its operation in Robertson County,” said Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe. “Tennessee’s manufacturing sector is one of the state’s strongest. One out of eight Tennesseans is employed in the manufacturing sector and I want to thank Gateway for adding even more jobs to this growing sector.”
“We are pleased to welcome Gateway Packaging to White House and Robertson County, keeping great job opportunities in our community,” said Margot Fosnes, president and chief economic development officer of the Robertson County Chamber of Commerce. “We believe that White House and its location on Interstate 65 so close to Nashville will be a major advantage for the company in its future growth and market reach.”
