It is so difficult to believe it has been fifteen years since my wife Lenora and I started our packaging products company. So much has happened since 2007. The first few years were tough (the economic depression of 2007), but we survived that as well as the recent Covid pandemic. Thanks to the accelerated growth in e-commerce we have never been busier.
We are very proud of all we have accomplished in these 15 years but mostly we are extremely grateful to our many friends, employees, and manufacturing partners.
However, the people we owe the most gratitude to are our wonderful customers. Some were and are small, home-based businesses, and others were start-ups who eventually became household names like Harry’s, and Madison Reed. These are people who realized that experienced packaging people like us could bring a fresh perspective, focus, and innovative designs to a rapidly changing market.
We were one of the first companies to focus on green packaging products and created industry leading products for companies who needed them. We noticed the sudden interest in branding and the desire for companies to communicate who they are and what they stood for. That included their stance and commitment to sustainability. We understood that in many cases, sustainability and branding worked together hand in hand.
It has been a great 15 years and we are truly blessed to have gotten to know the many people we have met over the years. We have taught extensively through our blog and numerous books and articles we have contributed to. But we have also learned much by listening to our customers and responding with innovation, total transparency, and the greatest customer service group in the industry.
Thank you everyone for believing in us and for giving us an opportunity to work with you. The gratitude sign in the attached photo still hangs in our lobby and as long as we own this company it always will.
With sincere appreciation –
Dennis and Lenora Salazar
