AVC CORPORATION INAUGURATES NEW RANCHO DOMINGUEZ FACILITY AND EXPANDS GLOBAL LOGISTICS SERVICES

 

AVC Corporation, the ‘one stop shop’ for packaging, inaugurated its new Rancho Dominguez facility recently while at the same time announcing its new global initiative. No longer just a packaging leader, AVC offers global logistics, software uploading, and reconfiguration.

 

“Packaging is not our primary business anymore,” said Moshe Begim, AVC’s president. “While we will continue to lead the industry in new, unique and inventive environmental packaging concepts,  AVC’s expansion is focused in the direction of value added services such as RMA, reverse and forward logistics, uploading of software, reconfiguration of programming, kitting, transportation services, and supply chain management.”

 

The real change is the expanded services provided by AVC. Last November, AVC opened its Plainfield, Indiana facility with 150,000 square feet to provide RMA services, forward and reverse logistics, and warehouse capabilities, as well as reconfiguration services. The centralized location allows 2 day delivery by truck east of the Rockies. Of course, the Rancho Dominguez facility is available to guarantee two day delivery throughout the rest of the country.

 

The third jewel in the logistics crown is AVC’s China operation with 5 facilities that can do all the same packaging, printing and thermoforming that the USA plants can do - and even more - with injection molding. The option of buying China components and sending them to the USA for a final packout is available to all their clients. “The China facilities can package just as good as the USA but sometimes logistics dictates the combination of both worlds and this is our forte,” said Begim.

 

AVC has expanded its reverse and forward logistics capabilities this year, at all their locations, adding to their already successful RMA and fulfillment programs.  AVC has developed a versatile RMA solution for their clients use as well. “We have put together the ultimate program for our clients,” said Begim. “Have us package your goods in Rancho Dominguez using components from our China facility, ship from AVC to all the ‘big box’ DCs in the USA, and then have AVC handle your RMAs, reverse and forward logistics, including refurbishment. Truly we have it all.”

 

AVC’s new facility in Rancho Dominguez boasts 150,000 square feet with exceptional security. “Where else can you find 24 foot ceiling high iron fencing separating the warehouse from production areas? Along with that, add over 120 cameras and a security patrol plus a virtual guard system that covers the perimeter 24/7/365.” The ISO9001 certified AVC built 6 ESD labs especially to handle their client’s electronic needs and concerns.

 

AVC continues to stress its environmental packaging line including the ERB, Enviropack and the new Envirobox. The Envirobox is AVC’s newest rollout boasting zero plastic, security, recyclability, renewability, and of course its compactness, giving you lower freight costs, as well as expanded shelf space. Popping up at Sam’s Club, Wal-Mart, and Costco, they are the packaging concept of the 21st century.

By all accounts AVC has changed from the “one stop shop” to the “Global one stop shop.”
