Volk Packaging Corporation Selects Epicor AVP




After a recent win at Rice Packaging Solutions, Epicor AVP has been chosen by another New England specialty packaging company, Volk Packaging Corporation, for corrugated packaging manufacturing. Volk Packaging Corporation is a third-generation family-owned and -operated company based in Biddeford, Maine, that designs, manufactures, and distributes corrugated and specialty packaging products. Since 1967, the company has grown to serve more than 1,000 customers throughout New England and Canada, and it manufactured more than 28 million boxes in 2012.



To serve its customers more efficiently, the key resource for Volk Packaging Corporation is access to real-time insights to specific customer information necessary to fulfill orders and provide superior customer service. The packager decided to upgrade its software to Epicor AVP to take advantage of the latest technology and a system that is designed specifically for corrugated packaging manufacturers.

Epicor AVP came from the  Solarsoft acquisition in 2012. It's a business software solution designed for packaging manufacturing companies, including corrugated packaging and display, folding carton, flexible packaging, labels, and more. The product closely follows Microsoft technology standards and integrates with Microsoft Word, Excel, and Outlook. It is used in more than 100 packaging plants around the world.

Epicor AVP automates repetitive tasks and captures data automatically. Delivering costing, pre-press management, computer-aided design (CAD) integration and direct connections to shop floor equipment, multiple what-if estimating scenarios, flexible inventory control, and scheduling software that keeps jobs in sequence automatically, the solution enables manufacturers to achieve higher levels of control and efficiency across operations.
