Thermoforming Companies: 4 Things That Set Indepak Apart

Thermoforming Companies: 4 Things That Set Indepak Apart

If you need custom plastic packaging, parts or perhaps point-of-purchase displays, a thermoforming company can help. Of course, not all thermoforming companies are created equally, and there are several reasons why we encourage you to choose Indepak for all of your thermoforming needs.

1. We Have 50+ Years Of Experience

As one of the country’s top thermoforming companies, we’ve been creating clamshells and blister packs, containers and thermoform plastic parts since 1967. Our team of designers and technicians have a vast amount of experience designing packaging and parts for a wide range of industries. Throughout our many years, we have served clients in the specialty foods industry, the medical and pharmaceutical industries, the agricultural industry, the electronics industry and, of course, for many retail companies.

We can create virtually any type of packaging you might need, including all types of blister packaging, clamshell packaging, custom thermoform trays, business-to-business tote trays, ESD packaging for electronics and static-sensitive products, low-particulate medical trays and packaging for non-sterile or downstream sterilization applications, custom point-of-purchase displays or something else entirely. We have the experience and skills to meet your needs.

2. We Complete Projects On Time & On Budget

Too often, thermoforming companies have a limited amount of equipment on hand, and this slows production times. Our facility includes multiple lines of high-speed thermoforming equipment allowing us to complete projects for multiple clients concurrently and allows us to use a greater range of materials.

No matter what your budget might be, we can provide you with a thermoform plastic material that suits your project. Our equipment can process many types of materials, including ABS, HIPS, HDPE, LDPE, OPS, PET, PETG, PP, PVC and even starch-based biomaterials. Our equipment is capable of thermoforming rigid materials from .008” to .080” inches in thickness and foam materials from about 1/16” to ¼”.

In many ways, our thermoforming company provides a “one-stop shop” for all of your thermoforming projects. Our designers use the latest technology to create CAD files of your project and we have a variety of tooling and production equipment allowing us to create prototypes and production quality sample molds. Our facility includes an in-house tooling shop, allowing us to control all aspects of tool building as well as your project schedule. From design to development to production, everything is handled in-house, which saves time and money for our clients.

3. We Offer Many Additional Services

In addition to creating quality custom packaging, we also offer our clients several other services you may not find with other thermoforming companies. For instance, our facility includes 50,000-square-feet of warehouse space where you can store your inventory. We can create a customized inventory management system, from a simple minimum/maximum system to more sophisticated customer-based web portals. We also can provide you with package fulfillment services, including sealing your packaging together using processes such as heat sealing and RF welding. When you need your packaging or products shipped, Indepak’s on-time shipment exceeds 99.5% so you can rest assured that your shipments will arrive on time, every time.

4. Sustainability Is Our Goal

Virtually all of the materials we use at our thermoforming company are recyclable. We offer our clients many additional sustainable options, such as using starch-based biomaterials, materials with combination package designs that incorporate thermoform plastic with pulp or paper. We also can create many types of packaging using materials with recycled content.

We are an ISO-certified thermoforming company, and we exceed ISO 14001:2015 requirements, resulting in a very low-waste operation in every part of our company. We have been recycling, re-using and reducing long before it was popular or required. We are committed to creating the most sustainable packaging possible as well as striving to minimize the impact of our activities on the environment in general.
