Worcester, MA (September 27, 2011) - Technology Container Corporation (TCC), the world’s largest producer of reusable, custom designed, corrugated plastic and paper distribution boxes, recently relocated its headquarters to 207 Greenwood Street in Worcester from the Town of Shrewsbury. The property, which was the former site of National Envelope, is an industrial site that houses a 136,000-square-foot manufacturing facility.
Technology Container worked closely with the City’s Division of Business Assistance and the City Manager’s Quinsigamond Village Landfill Funds Advisory Committee to undergo substantial renovations and upgrades to the property that included a modernized plant facility, new heating, cooling, and electrical systems, new offices and landscaping. The company has approximately 35 full-time, permanent employees and 30 – 50 temporary employees. TCC expects to hire up to four (4) full-time employees within a month.
"As our business continues to grow, our goal was to find an option that would allow us to expand and consolidate our business operations under one roof. The Greenwood Street facility and the central location of the City worked well for Technology Container Corporation. Quinsigamond Village stood out and was the ideal location for our business needs," said Stephen Westerlind, Chief Financial Officer, Technology Container Corporation. "Additionally, the City was accommodating and easy to work with — from Business Assistance to the Fire Department to Inspectional Services. We are thrilled to be part of the Worcester business community."
Technology Container Corporation has applied for a deferred loan in the amount of $20,000 from the Quinsigamond Village Microloan Program, as well as a grant in the amount of $12,500 through the Quinsigamond Village Storefront and Façade Improvement Program.
"We are pleased that Technology Container Corporation has chosen Worcester for its headquarters, and in particular, the burgeoning Quinsigamond Village neighborhood," said City Manager Michael V. O’Brien. "Worcester offers a solid foundation for growth of businesses of all sizes and across all industry sectors, facilitated by strong private-public partnerships such as those that came together to make this project happen."
