Packaging merger forms North America’s largest plastic box manufacturer
Transparent Packaging (Ontario, Canada) and Printex Packaging (Islandia, New York) have recently merged together.

Transparent Packaging (Ontario, Canada) and Printex Packaging (Islandia, New York) have recently merged together. The new company—Printex Transparent Packaging—is now the largest plastic box manufacturer in North America, delivering plastic folding cartons from its three design centers and two manufacturing plants within the U.S. and Canada. Domestic plastic packaging is now competing aggressively with producers overseas.

As PlasticsToday has reported in the past, companies like Wal-Mart are choosing to re-shore production of their goods as manufacturing has become more feasible and cost-effective in North America. This merger will help 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 is now uniquely positioned to supply the industry and bring even greater value to packaging on-shore.

Plastic box packaging is a very competitive market. Brand owners are looking to stand-out on the shelves and bring visibility to their products. Clear plastic packaging has been proven to increase consumer on shelf attention by 678%.  Prior to the merge, both companies were known for their expertise in designing and producing eye-catching packaging solutions with clear plastic. Together, between the two companies there is 60+ years of experience.

Printex Transparent Packaging will sell to the trade as a subcontractor and direct to consumer brand owners and offers solutions that can be hand-packed or filled on automated packaging lines. The new company will also work 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

Printex Transparent Packaging will service clients across the U.S., Canada and Mexico from its production facilities in New York and Montreal, while also producing in China for overseas assembly.

Brands such as Glade, Sally Hansen, Chanel, Bacardi, Energizer, Crest, Hershey’s and more have chosen to work with Printex Transparent Packaging.
