One of the many vacant big-box storefronts in west Mesa will come to life again as a box factory.
Arizona Corrugated Containers has bought the former Levitz furniture store at 225 S. Dobson Road, where it will invest $10 million in the 152,000-square-foot building.
The company makes custom-build boxes for the southern Arizona and northern Mexico markets and is owned by the California Box Company. It will employ about 20 to 24 employees, with a payroll of nearly $1 million.
The site falls within the city’s Enterprise Zone, which allows the box company to seek tax credits and property tax reductions.
