Specializing in Optimal Cushioning Systems and Customized Inner Packaging

Determining the best container to match your item is a critical step. However, for various items, discouraging shock and vibration can be just as important. That’s why we are specialists in developing and utilizing the precise cushioning and wrapping materials based on every item’s individual weight, fragility, and vibration sensitivity. Accurately securing your contents inside the box or wooden crate is the final step to ensuring your shipment will be protected during the unpredictable challenges of the shipping environment. We will thoroughly assess the item to be shipped and use advanced materials such as polyethylene and polyurethane foams to create safe housing while en route. 

You can depend on our custom packaging to provide just as much necessary protection and security as the crate itself- from start to finish. Some of our cushioning and packaging options are:
