For almost 70 years, TransPak has provided innovative and cost-effective design, crating, packaging and global logistics for customers who rely on safely moving goods from manufacturing to customers’ hands. In 2017, TransPak acquired Lincoln-based CasesPlus, significantly expanding its business. The company recently completed a move into 75,000 square feet at 1721 Aviation Blvd., three times the size of its former Lincoln location, and added 25 employees. In addition to designing and building cases in-house, TransPak Lincoln is one of the largest stocking distributors of reusable carrying and shipping cases in North America.
Construction products manufacturer GC Products produces glass-fiber-reinforced concrete and gypsum, access panels and specialty finishes that are recognized as the highest quality in the industry. This family-founded business has grown from its humble 2003 roots of 20 employees to 45, relocating from Reno to Lincoln’s 1601 Aviation Blvd. After five years in Reno, the relocation and expansion decision was made because GC Products found that doing business in Nevada was not advantageous for the long term success of their business. Facing growth pressures, the company needed to make a change quickly and reached out to the City of Lincoln.
City of Lincoln Economic Development Manager Shawn Tillman engaged with GC Products and sought the support of the Greater Sacramento Economic Council. Working together with the property owner, the project team was able to secure a site, issue permits and complete tenant improvements in less than 90 days.
