2018: Genpak Review

January 3rd, 2019 RSS feed icon

Every year at this time, we look at what we have accomplished the year prior. For us at Genpak, 2018 was pretty dang busy. We worked on tons of custom projects with our partners, but also developed the new Clover hinged containers. The line offers a bridge from polystyrene packaging to a recyclable option without breaking the bank. At 100% recyclable, unlike our competition, Clover is a microwave safe, sturdy, and environmentally preferred option. Clover has been a hit across the country.

While we were building a new product line, we also introduced new products to our current ones. ProView saw the introduction of the Close-Off containers, which provide separation for sides and mains. Customers told restaurants presentation is important. Getting restaurant quality food at home was key to delivery success.

The introduction of Harvest Fiber rectangles, offer a different aesthetic for all kinds of foods. Grease and oil resistance just like our other top-of-the-line Harvest Fiber items. the rectangle design matches up with our existing FPR lids making the transition into fiber from Smart Set Pro an easy one. Fiber is sustainable, renewable, and commercially compostable.

Our office here in Charlotte has united since we’ve been here a full year now. Comradery, collaboration, and commitment brings Genpak success. Our employees are committed to helping the communities where we work. Support for the Men’s Shelter of Charlotte started with our National Sales Meeting in January with a scavenger hunt for need items, and ended with collecting coats, food, clothing and monetary donations throughout the fall. Our US and Canadian team members collected over 5,200 food items for local food banks in 11 different states and provinces in the month of October. During the unfortunate natural disasters our country faced, Genpak provided food packaging for nonprofits feeding the first responders, volunteers, and families on the ground. The holidays are the biggest time of giving around the world; at Genpak it continued. Our York County Adopt-A-Family enjoyed many gifts, the children at Lancaster Children’s Home got a special visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus, and Operation Warm collected new and used coats to help those who needed them the most. Our Jean Day donations throughout the year raised monies for Samaritan’s Purse, HopeWay Foundation, Charlotte Rotary, Susan G. Komen Foundation, Rock Hill Redskins, Second Harvest Food Bank, among others.

2019 will be a great year for Genpak. We will introduce new innovative packaging, continue to develop our employees, and work within our communities.
Wishing you a very happy, healthy, and harmonious 2019!
