Transparent Packaging and Printex Packaging announced that they have merged to create Printex Transparent Packaging—which calls itself the largest plastic box packaging company in North America. According to the new company, it has three design centers and two manufacturing plants that deliver plastic folding cartons within the US and Canada.
The company maintained that the merger not only keeps packaging jobs in Canada and the US, but also offers CPG producers “consistent quality and faster turnaround times.” The company said that more and more companies like Wal-Mart have moved their manufacturing to North America as it becomes more affordable in the region, and domestic plastic packaging is competing aggressively with producers outside of North America.
According to the company, Printex Transparent Packaging has 60 plus years of experience between the two companies, which were both known for their clear packaging solutions. The company cited the statistic that on-shield clear plastic packaging has been proven to increase consumer attention by 67.8 percent.
Printex Transparent Packaging said it offers hand-packed options, as well as packaging that can be filled on automated lines. The new packaging company lists the following areas of specialization: plastic folding cartons, hybrid paper/plastic cartons, rigid clear/printed window affixing and POS displays.
