Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Mil-Spec Packaging of Georgia, Macon, Ga., USA, this week announced that it has been awarded a GSA Schedule 81 IB contract and is now certified to provide shipping, packaging, and packing supplies and services to the federal government. Acknowledging the growth in federal spending through the GSA, Mil-Spec Packaging has placed some of its corrugated shipping cartons on the government's electronic ordering system, with additional items to follow.

"This schedule opens up significantly more markets throughout the country and affords us an opportunity to provide government agencies with the latest corrugated shipping containers, crates, fast packs, and other government special packaging instruction items (SPI)," Jon Watson, president at Mil-Spec, said. "Our schedule will expand our reach beyond the federal government to numerous state and municipal governmental agencies as we can now offer them a variety of Industrial packaging solutions at fixed government pricing."

Mil-Spec Packaging maintains a large inventory of stock sheet grades ranging from 200 lb. single wall, through 1,100 lb. triple wall, and all government grades, to manufacture its containers in-house. Most sheet plants depend on third party suppliers that may not have this material available. Mil-Spec notes that it meets or exceeds many of the military/weatherized grade materials requirements including W5C, V3C, V11C, V13C, and Triple Wall.

The company also produces die cut folded cartons, telescoping style boxes, and various types of partitions. In addition to its standard product line, Mil-Spec offers custom printed corrugated boxes, featuring a client's logo, package content information, or any other graphic, small or large, up to 60 in. (1,524 mm) in diameter. It can provide color-matching service or print materials using one or two colors on its press.
