Larsen Packaging Products, Inc. to Manufacture Corrugated Boxes in House

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Larsen Packaging Products, a 30+ year distributor of packaging & shipping supplies, have decided to start manufacturing corrugating corrugated boxes in house.

Bill Larsen states, “Initially we started to convert sheets in house to be able to react faster for quoting & delivery purposes to our end users.  As a distributor, we were always bound to someone else’s minimum requirement which is no longer the case.  Most companies in the packaging arena are either a manufacturer or a distributor & we’re now able to ride both sides of that fence offering a real one stop shop experience. We have always offered blanket order release & vendor managed inventory programs.  As a distributor that came with the added liability of paying for & storing the material up front. The storage of this material is not only very expensive, we never really knew if the end user would really take & pay for the material when he said he would.  We’re now able store substantially less inventory on hand while supplying ultra-aggressive pricing when required.”

Some of the equipment in Larsen’s portfolio includes, 2 color-Staley rotary die cutter, 2 color-Simon mini FFG, 2 color-Langston Saturn III 50” FFG, Solarco Lineal feed (98 x 220”) corrugated press
