Green Light for 1 million sq. ft. Design/Build Project for Unified2
Boylston, MA— RP Masiello today announced the start of an ambitious design/build project, totaling 1 million square-feet of warehouse and manufacturing space across two buildings for Unified2 Global Packaging in Sutton, Massachusetts.
With 40-foot ceilings to accommodate high-rack storage, and 160 loading docks to handle the massive flow of packaging materials Unified2 provides for companies around the world, the new buildings will be steel-frame structures, with insulated metal wall panels and a decorative split-block façade.
The new buildings will be located off Unified Parkway, a new road under construction on the company’s 448-acre site off Providence and Boston Roads in Sutton.
“It’s been a real pleasure to build this tremendous relationship we have with the Unified2 leadership team,” said David Masiello, president of RP Masiello. “I believe the best metric for quality in our industry is repeat business from customers. This will be our sixth major project for Unified 2.”
The relationship between these two companies began in 1998 when RP Masiello was selected to build the first Unified2 facility. Since then, RP Masiello completed several major additions to the original facility, and a design/build program for Unified2’s new 418,000 square- foot corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility that opened in Sutton in 2009.
Unified2 is a partnership between the original Atlas Box and Crating Company and The Kraft Group of Foxborough. The company is head-quartered in Sutton, and has facilities across North America and Europe. It’s an innovative leader in the protective packaging industry. They engineer and manufacture a wide range of custom packaging solutions for industrial, commercial, life sciences, and advanced technology sectors.
Decades of experience, and a large network of affiliates, perfectly positioned Unified2 to meet the surging demand for packaging driven by the exponential growth of online consumer purchasing. These new buildings will help Unified2 keep pace and create capacity for future growth.
