BLOOMINGDALE, Ill., Nov. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- US packaging leader Assemblies Unlimited (www.assemblies.com) has confirmed the capacity to accommodate partnerships with non-US product manufacturers who are seeking entry into or distribution across competitive US markets. With turnkey services guided by experienced project managers taking ownership from design through completion, Assemblies Unlimited uses its network of local vendors to give non-US companies a competitive edge in bringing their products to eager US-buyers.
"We are another layer of quality assurance to ensure objectives and specifications are met," stated Randy Shaw of Assemblies. "Our 20 years in contract packaging services have enabled us to maximize operational efficiencies. We understand big box retailer's packaging requirements and can collaborate on design, graphics and structure to ensure US market demands are met cost effectively. We also handle back-end logistical services including warehousing and drop shipping to D/C's or direct to retail stores, so our overseas clients can stay focused on the quality of their offers and their marketing - we handle the rest."
Shaw states his company's experience providing "womb-to-tomb" services for several European companies give Assemblies Unlimited an advantage in helping new product manufacturers find proven sales channel success. "We have clients who rely on US-based manufacturers," Shaw continued. "They actually make or blend their product domestically (not in their own country), then ship to Assemblies Unlimited to complete the retail packaging project. These steps might include designing retail boxes or flexible packaging and determining the strength and structure of packaging materials; identifying pack-out of retail items for secure shipping to meet US retail specifications; and, supporting customer timelines and budgets with real-time communication and clear direction on steps necessary to complete a successful campaign." Shaw points out Assemblies Unlimited provides full turnkey services for Food and non-Food applications, wet (liquid) as well as dry (powder) packaging solutions, and primary and secondary packaging services.
Shaw states that for non-US business to penetrate this rich market, it is necessary to manage the supply chain so all timelines come together and final production is efficient. "At Assemblies Unlimited, we take full responsibility for quality assurance. This means our teams ensure size, structure, date and lot codes are within specification. We ensure your graphics are correct and approved, die lines are accurate, labeling is correct, stackability is considered, pallet patterns, inner and outer case packaging specs are met, product is secure and protected, and any needs are answered for specific retailers, e.g. Costco and Sam's club require specific product pallets."
With a nationally-spanning, domestic footprint of contract packaging plants and raw materials suppliers, Assemblies Unlimited is ready to support interested international companies. Assemblies Unlimited relies on 20-year partnerships forged inside US borders to source, procure, design, package, warehouse, fulfill and distribute finished goods - all on one invoice - without the international partner needing to "touch" it again.
