About Us

How We Became a Team

Team Packaging Company was founded in 2004 by three long-time friends and co-workers who came together to form a "Team", each bringing a unique and varied set of talents from the packaging industry. We concentrated on products that require durable outer containers and custom inner protection. With a focus on wood crating, foam fabrication, and corrugated paper products, Team Packaging Company has one mission:

"Create Packaging Solutions to Satisfy Our Customers’ Needs"

In quantities as small as one or as large as you need, Team supplies a diverse product line of custom packaging to a variety of industries including aerospace, electro-mechanical, industrial and medical. Innovative designs, a strong work ethic, and small business enthusiasm have propelled Team Packaging Company in both reputation and growth. Strong relationships with our business partners, our customers, and suppliers alike, are key to the success of Team Packaging Company.
