Rand-Whitney Signs and Raises Final Beam on its 373,500-Square-Foot Packaging and Manufacturing Facility

BOYLSTON, MA — 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 manufacturing facility. When fully operational in the spring of 2023, the new packaging facility will manufacture 350 million boxes annually.

Smith opened the event discussing the importance of the new manufacturing building for the company to meet growing demand. The facility represents Rand-Whitney’s largest investment in equipment and capacity. The 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,” Smith said. “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 landmark 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. This is the fourth construction project collaboration between the two companies.

“We have a great group of companies including Borggaard sitework, Diaz Construction, Norgate Steel, Steller Steel, Brookside, and hundreds of people making this beam signing and topping off a reality,” Stebbins said during the ceremony. “It’s great that you can all be here to share in the excitement as we head into the final stretch of the construction process."
