Genco Expands Contract Packaging Capabilities
Published: July 10th, 2013
Genco has announced the company has formalized its existing contract packaging capabilities into a new business unit, Contract Packaging at Genco.
The Pittsburgh, PA-based company’s contract packing unit currently serves multiple Tier 1 customers in the consumer, technology, and healthcare markets, providing large scale, integrated packaging that increases visibility and takes out unnecessary costs, the company said in a press release.
The new business unit is being led by Dave Mabon, who will serve as its president. Mabon previously held the titles of chief operating officer and chief customer officer within the company.
“With over 140 operations across North America, we are a large-scale, financially stable company. Contract packaging is a growing business segment and an excellent opportunity for us to deliver initial and on-going value to our customer’s bottom line,” said Mabon. “We will evolve the contract packaging industry by making packaging a competitive advantage for our customers.”
Genco provides large-scale execution utilizing its network of facilities throughout North America, with features including proven experience in last mile execution - club store packaging, shrink wrapping, pallet displays, clamshells, blister packs, cartoning, pre- and post-holiday projects, and specialty products.
The company offers best-in-class visibility to ensure that all marketing, manufacturing, and supply chain goals are aligned, with extensive on-going cost analysis to ensure that all unnecessary costs are removed - from designing new packaging alternatives and identifying less expensive material options, to leveraging foreign trade zones to control import costs, the company said.
