(Baltimore, MD – July 2015) Case Mason (www.casemason.com), a leading East Coast provider of contract manufacturing and packaging services for consumer brands, recently completed a consolidation of all of its production capabilities to a 150,000 square foot facility located in Baltimore, MD. Previously, the company operated out of two separate locations situated 11 miles apart.
The advantages of consolidating production to the single, modern facility, according to Scott Miller, Chief Growth Officer for Case Mason, could be realized almost immediately. “The recent move enabled us to substantially streamline operations and resources, and eliminate the need to shuttle personnel, materials, and resources from plant-to-plant. We can now set up continuous processing lines within a single footprint, which will increase our already high level of responsiveness. And having the entire Case Mason team under one roof has dramatically improved communications, both internally and externally.”
Located at 9101 Yellow Brick Road in Baltimore, minutes from Interstate-95, Case Mason is ideally situated to service customers all along the I-95 corridor. The consolidated facility includes 135,000 square feet dedicated to solid and liquid products filling, packaging and assembly, with a separate 16,000 square foot segment dedicated to food and beverage production and packaging. Case Mason has a full-time work force of 40 employees, and with a readily accessible regional labor pool, can quickly expand to accommodate seasonal, rush or special projects. “We’ve experienced steady growth over the last seven years,” Miller added. “Additional adjacent space exists should we need it, to further expand our footprint, and keep pace with the demands of our expanding customer base.”
The company supports a broad range of consumer packaged goods companies, from entrepreneurial start-ups, to global brands in the health and beauty, food and beverage, household and industrial markets, as well as a variety of specialty products. Case Mason capabilities include contract filling, packaging, assembly and supply chain management, offered to customers as a complete turnkey solution.
The facility houses blending equipment and numerous filling lines to accommodate products in solid, semi-solid, powder and liquid formats, including bulk filling. Packaging services include bundling, cartoning, clam shell packaging, flow wrapping, shrink sealing, coding and labeling, as well as club store packaging and store ready pallets. Assembly services include point of purchase displays, gift packs, tray and multi-pack assemblies, as well as re-work and product modification services. For many customers, Case Mason also offers package sourcing, warehousing, and distribution and fulfillment services.
The location also houses a comprehensive tooling department, along with resources to provide custom equipment fabrication and reengineering for specialty projects. This gives the company additional flexibility to adapt or create equipment to meet precise packaging requirements quickly and efficiently.
Case Mason’s Quality Assurance Department provides complete oversight and monitors all services, processes and manufacturing, from raw material inspection and finished goods inspection, to work in progress, process and testing.
The facility is registered by the American Institute of Baking (AIB), the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), is Kosher certified, is licensed by the State of Maryland for Food Processing, and is also bonded to package alcohol products in Maryland.
