Mepco has moved into a new 175,000 square foot manufacturing plant on 15 acres at Stockton Street and Kettleman Lane and has begun production at the site. Mepco makes labels for a variety of products, from food and wine labels to consumer to industrial items.
Mepco President Jennifer Tracy says the move allows the privately-owned company an opportunity to consolidate into one facility.
"We were bursting at the seams and this move will allow us so many more opportunities for growth," Tracy says. "The city was incredibly helpful and welcoming," she adds. "They have really made us aware how much Lodi wants new businesses and growth."
Mepco Executive Vice President Karl Gassner adds, “The move allows us to expand our printing capabilities and continue our dramatic growth.”
"Mepco's decision is confirmation that Lodi is a desirable place to do business," Lodi Mayor JoAnne Mounce says. "Not only do we have low electric rates, but we have a cooperative city staff and a unique quality of life that businesses and their employees can enjoy."
