A Look At Our Quality Plastic Food Packaging
At Indepak we serve many industries, including the specialty food industry. Creating plastic food packaging is one of our areas of expertise, and with thermoplastics, virtually any shape or size of package is possible. Here’s a quick look at our process and what you can expect as an Indepak customer.
Design & Development
Our first step is always to meet with the client and learn a bit about the product and type of plastic food packaging that is needed. We can create clamshells, thermoplastic containers with lids, thermoform trays and much more, depending on your needs. After that initial meeting our design team will utilize state-of-the-art technology to create an attractive design that meets your requirements.
Once this design is approved, we will move on to the development of a prototype for your plastic food packaging. During these early stages, we focus on design solutions that take into account space, weight, strength, presentation and cost containment to provide you with the best possible packaging solution.
Production & Quality Control
Once you’ve approved the prototype, it’s time to move on to production. At Indepak, our facility is stock with a myriad of high-speed thermoforming equipment. Not only does this speed up production times, it also allows us the flexibility to use a wide variety of materials for plastic food packaging as well as other types of packaging we create. These materials include PET, LDPE, HDPE and more. We also can create combination designs that feature thermoplastics as well as paper or pulp.
Throughout the entire production process, we pay strict attention to quality control. We are an ISO registered company and we consistently exceed ISO standards. Each step of the production process is monitored carefully, and we can provide complete traceability from start to finish.
At Indepak, we have long been committed to reducing, recycling and re-using. In fact, we go well beyond ISO 14001 requirements. As a low-waste operation, we are committed to minimizing the impact of our activities on the environment.
Virtually every material we use is recyclable and all of our materials are compliant with REACH, RoHS and EICC regulations. We also are a registered user of the BOMcheck system. In addition to creating plastic food packaging from easily recyclable materials such as PET, we also offer some bio-based materials that might be suitable for your packaging.
Beyond the creation of plastic food packaging, we also offer a few other services. For instance, we can provide you with package fulfillment and inventory management. Our facility features 50,000 square feet of warehouse space, and we can create a custom inventory management system tailored to each customer’s specific needs.
For more than 45 years, Indepak has been a leader in the thermoforming industry. If you would like to discuss your plastic food packaging needs, fill out the quick contact form on our website or give us a call today.
