The warehouse is lat 9698 Premier Parkway in the Miramar Park of Commerce, developed by Sunbeam Properties & Development. It is adjacent to the Florida turnpike in a new state-of-the-art building that features high ceilings and large bays to optimize space utilization. The leasing agent is Jones Lang LaSalle.

Berlin Packaging will begin using the new space in May, be fully operational this summer when the build out is complete, and continue to use existing third-party warehouses in Orlando, Miami and Jacksonville when needed for proximity to customers' fillers or own facilities. The company is also opening a new office in Miami, joining its Florida headquarters in Bradenton and sales offices across Florida established over the firm's 20 years of business in the state.

"Our sales in Florida have surged tremendously in the last year, in part because of an aggressive sales and marketing campaign focusing on services such as package design, global sourcing, capital lending at below-market rates, and consulting that we offer free in exchange for new packaging business. That growth prompted us to look for more warehouse space that we can staff with our own personnel," said Darrin Dingman, Florida District Manager, Berlin Packaging. "This new facility will allow us to provide more same-day shipping as well as accommodate continued expansion of our Florida customer base."
