Rusken Expands Footprint: Fort Worth, TX
Rusken Packaging (“Rusken”) is pleased to announce that we are in the process of opening a new 350,000 square foot facility in Fort Worth, TX. Our team has been working tirelessly to ready the new Southern facility and are striving to be able to start running boxes in late September, early October of this year. Regarding the new addition, David Ortiz, VP of Operations, had this to say:
“Our expansion into the Dallas-Fort Worth sector will enable Rusken to service our existing customer base that have locations in this market; furthermore, we plan on capitalizing on the robust,
yet underserved, large format box sector. We plan on providing the Texas and the surrounding markets with what our customers love so much about Rusken Packaging…great service, quality products, and on-time delivery.”
Not only is our new Fort Worth facility home to CSC’s state-of-the-art BHS 110-inch corrugator, it is also equipped with a two color jumbo flexo folder gluer with an in-line die cut section.
Randy Whiteaker, COO, has appointed Rene Trevino to lead Rusken’s growth in the South as Fort Worth’s Plant Manager. Randy had this to say regarding the addition of Rene to our leadership team:
“Rene is a proven leader and will have an immediate impact for us in Texas. I am excited to expand our footprint and look forward to what lies ahead for us in Texas”.
Coming to the realization that almost every product needs a corrugated product to protect it, Rene acted on pursuing his interest in the corrugated market in 1999. Most recently a General Manager in Houston, Rene comes to
Rusken with 24 years of corrugated industry experience. When asked about his goals for his new role within Rusken, Rene said:
“I want to continue the exponential sustained growth that Rusken has experienced over the last 10 years within the Dallas, Fort Worth area. We want Texas customers to experience the Rusken Packaging way to service the large format box market at all levels; from design all the way through quality and on-time finished goods delivery.”
Currently residing in the Fort-Worth-Dallas Metroplex area, Rene enjoys spending time with his four daughters. When he is not busy growing our new Texas facility, you can find him enjoying a nice run or playing the piano!
Please join us in celebrating our newest addition and welcoming Rene Trevino to the Rusken Family!
