Plants & Processes Delivering Value Added Digital Packaging Prototypes Peek Packaging Wows clients By Ginny Mumm After more than 20 years in the packaging business, Ed Heller, sales manager at Peek Packaging Solu- tions, Carlsbad, CA, has seen a lot of things change. What he said hasn’t changed is that success still depends on two factors: adding value for clients and providing excellent customer service. “Everyone purchases raw materials at the same prices. What we’re able to do is provide better service and more added value than the competition,” noted Heller. Peek Packaging Solutions designs and manufactures packaging for medium- and high-end retail sales. It has cli- ents across the country in a wide variety of business sectors, including food, biomedical, electronics, personal healthcare, skincare, and more. With 15 staff members, management considers the operation a small but efficient shop. In recent years, Peek Packaging has grown its sales tremendously and nearly doubled the size of its operations. One reason for the growth is a decision to bring prototyping production in-house by investing in a 54-in. Roland LEC-540 VersaUV printer/cutter. VERSATILITY LAUDED Tony Irrera and Gregg Furukawa run the design room and appreciate the versatility of their UV inkjet printer/cutter. “Being able to run everything from roll-stock vinyl to 24 pt. SBS and F-Flute corrugated allows us to meet our customers’ needs no matter what material they request,” says Irrera. Peek Packaging produces a variety of packaging solutions, including set-up boxes, chipboard boxes, printed boxes, custom corrugated boxes, and flexible packaging. It also partners with many different custom foam manufacturers, poly bag manufacturers and printed retail bag distributors.
