Packaging Companies Merge to Become Largest Manufacturer

Posted: September 16, 2015

Dave Dennison of Transparent Packaging and Dave Heller of Printex Packaging have announced the merger of their companies.

The new company—Printex Transparent Packaging--is one of the largest plastic box manufacturers in North America, delivering plastic folding cartons from its three design centers and two manufacturing plants within the U.S. and Canada.

More and more companies such as Wal-Mart are choosing to re-shore production of their goods as manufacturing has become more feasible and affordable in North America.  This merger works to keep valuable packaging jobs in Canada and the U.S. while offering producers of consumer products consistent quality and faster turnaround times.  The newly combined company, Printex Transparent Packaging, is positioned to supply the industry and bring even greater value to packaging on-shore.

Plastic box packaging is a specialized, competitive market. Brand owners are looking to differentiate and bring visibility to their products.  Clear plastic packaging has been proven to increase consumer on shelf attention by 67.8%.  Both TRANSPARENT PACKAGING and PRINTEX PACKAGING were known for their unique expertise in designing and producing eye catching packaging solutions with clear plastic. Now, with this merger, customers can benefit from their combined 60 plus years of experience.

Selling to the trade as a subcontractor and direct to consumer brand owners, Printex Transparent Packaging offers solutions that can be hand-packed or filled on automated packaging lines. Printex Transparent Packaging also works with equipment manufacturers to help automate their client's plastic folding carton assembly process.

Areas of specialization include:

  • plastic folding cartons
  • hybrid paper/plastic cartons
  • Rigid clear/printed window affixing
  • Point of purchase displays
