St. Louis County Packaging Plant Anticipates Expansion

EnviroPAK Corp., which uses recycled newspaper mixed with water to create paper packaging trays, plans to expand in Earth City within the next year because the demand for environmentally friendly secure packaging is growing, particularly big-ticket items.
