In the aftermath of COVID-19, it’s not just public health that’s on everyone’s mind. In businesses all over the world, supply chain issues are turning once-smoothly running systems into logistical nightmares.
The Business Intelligence Group has recognized PakTech for its Sustainability Product of the Year in the 2021 Sustainability Awards program.

Both paperboard and plastic remain as widely popular packaging materials. Yet, negative perceptions of plastic persist due to the commonly misplaced notion that paper is “natural” whereas plastic is not. This perception has pushed retailers and brands to make the switch away from plastic to paperboard but not without consequential environmental impacts.
As any successful co-packer knows, the best way to grow your business is to offer more services to your customers.

These initiatives have helped us repurpose the equivalent of over half a billion (644,203,483 to be exact) discarded milk jugs, keeping roughly 83 million pounds of plastic out of the waste stream. This is plastic that wasn’t sent to a landfill (or the ocean), but was instead repurposed, often multiple times!

Our origins are humble, having started out in 1983 as a small job shop that designed and produced moulds at request.
