American Packaging Corporation (APC) is adding a new facility in Cedar City, Utah to better serve existing customers in the western United States and develop new markets in the west. The move should strengthen the family-owned company overall as it hopes to grow from a $600 million a dollar a year to one day a $1 billion a year company.

The DeForest facility produces packaging for the food industry. The local plant is currently in Phase II of a four-phase plan. The plant is located at the DeForest industrial park near Hwy 51.
