CASES OF PRODUCT REPACKED IN 2021
Keep your operations efficient, but scalable, by working with our co-packing experts for all your contract packaging services. Unlike other companies that ship products from the warehouse, to an outsourced packaging provider, and back to the same warehouse again, you can have all your staging, packaging and repackaging done in the same facility by the same provider. This reduces costs, saves you the hassle, and expedites shipping considerably.
Our pros can help with:
- Shrink wraps
- Price labeling
- Variety packs
We can tailor a customized, resourceful solution that meets all FDA, USDA and SQF requirements, if necessary. Aligning with the right contract packaging company forms a central partnership that gets your products to market with speed, professionalism, and efficiency.
Our secure packaging facility sets aside designated areas for warehousing, conversion, and distribution, with inventory tracking along the way.
Our co-packing capabilities include oversight from over 70 full-time staff and hand labor for:
- Product and Kit Assembly
- Display Building
Our contract packaging solutions can be as simple as replacing an incorrect or outdated label, or as complex as repackaging to meet the requirements of big-box retailers. We are prepared to handle quick turn-around repackaging jobs at any time. We preserve primary packaging, adapting secondary packaging to repack one case count to another and bundle items into two, four, six or twelve packs, etc. We can add new SKUs and adapt materials from boxes to bags as necessary.
With 40 years of logistics experience, we fully understand the complexities of a variety of industries, from perishable goods storage to oversized building material handling. We know how to meet the expectations of consumers and retailers to the highest standards. We know how to package goods to safely and successfully get products from warehouse to market. As an industry leader in repackaging, we focus on quality with management personnel oversight, while achieving your goals for speed with the latest machine technology.

THANKS FOR VISITING!
Do you provide the packaging materials?
Not generally as our customers use custom printed and fitted materials. The materials are shipped to us from their supplier and we stock the materials needed as during production runs.
What kinds of products do you repack?
As a repacker, we receive products from our customers that are in their primary packaging (the packaging that touches the product) and they need us to repack these products into different configurations. So, we can essentially work with any product that is in its primary packaging.
Do you perform repacking services at all your facilities?
Currently, our facilities in Napoleon, Ohio, and Covington, Kentucky accommodates the majority of our repack business. However, if presented with the right opportunity, we wouldn't hesitate to add repacking services at any of our facilities.
Do you provide packaging design services?
We do not provide this service. However, we do work very closely with our customers' packaging engineers or outsourced design service so that we can optimize the functionality and efficiencies of the equipment the product will run through.
