Global Leader in Turnkey Contract Packaging, Filling and Fulfillment Celebrates 20th Year

Assemblies Unlimited Marks Second Decade as North American Packaging Leader

BLOOMINGDALE, Ill., Feb. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Assemblies Unlimited announced that it has celebrated the company's 20th year in business as a turnkey packaging specialist for retail clients all over the world. Started in 1993 as an outsourcing hub with a network of contract suppliers with a focus on contract packaging, hand assembly and fulfillment services, the company, led by owner Randy Shaw, has grown to become a "go-to" source for a global customer base who needs supply chain support getting their product packaged and properly prepared for retail.

"The last 20 years have allowed us to provide packaging solutions for every type of product," stated Shaw. "Assemblies Unlimited today has a global customer base who considers us the 'go-to' source in answering the needs of packaging solutions for food as well as non-food, primary and secondary packaging, dry powders as well as liquid products.  "Within our very first year" he continued, "we realized that there was an unmet need for a full-service contract packaging expert with a national data base of vendors who could match the specific customer need with the perfect packaging partner.

While our business model has remained constant the packaging industry has not.  New packaging methods have forced Assemblies to move with them so we continue to broaden our scope and experience while becoming a broader network of service providers poised and able to capitalize on retail trends and US-based contract packaging demand".  In 2003, Assemblies Unlimited added a branch office in San Diego serving the customer base in the west to support local contract packaging and turnkey packaging projects in that region.  Shaw confirms that many customers have taken advantage of our broad reach from LA to Chicago to save on distribution costs and freight on finished goods.

Shaw states that Assemblies Unlimited has been successful for 20 years in part because they are able to meet the needs of such a diverse customer base while supporting many industries including Food & Processing, Baking and Snack, Personal Care, Dairy, Grain/Cereal, Household, Cosmetics, Dietary Supplements, Consumer Electronics, Confectionary, Retail, Promotions, POP displays and many more.  With contract packaging, filling and fulfillment partners across North America, Assemblies Unlimited helps customers save money by local sourcing of raw materials and managing the entire project from beginning to end to ensure each deliverable of their packaging project is identified and completed.

Then in 2012, Shaw saw a need to provide stock packaging materials to help support Assemblies' custom business so he launched a new company called PackagingQuote.com, which is a fully interactive website and shopping cart site selling end-of-line packaging materials such as corrugated boxes, tape, bubble wrap, poly bags, shrink film, mailing envelopes and more. Shaw sees this sister division growing year over year and believes it can help make Assemblies Unlimited a "closed loop" proposition by backfilling stock packaging materials to complete a turnkey project.  There are over 15,000 stock packaging items in stock that can be shipped out same day thru PackagingQuote.com.
