Phoenix rises above the rest through commitment to craft. For six generations, we have invented, re-invented, and patented seals and packages that have become industry standards. We invest heavily in our infrastructure of high quality systems for packaging design and innovation.
Our depth of expertise allows our agility, pivoting with each new product demand to ensure excellence at the end of the line. Our company strength provides the means to make decisions quickly to meet your needs, from new molds and machines to new lines and facilities. We’ve eliminated the bureaucracy that costs you time and money.
Several types of modeling are available, including 3-D printed models for early evaluation, and injection modeling.
Since 2000, we have opened three new production plants. All facilities are SQF Level II certified to insure food-grade production standards.
We eliminated 40% of our scrap generation over the past two years, and we keep 95% or more of our production scrap out of landfills through recycling and reuse programs.
We partner with vendors who share our company’s values and adhere to good manufacturing and sustainable practices.
Vendor initiatives include:
- Sourcing corrugated materials from partners that prescribe to sustainable forestry initiatives.
- Working with vendors who are Operation Clean Sweep Certified.
- Partnering with companies that also have stated values and processes for reducing material waste, increasing efficiency in water usage, and moving toward lower emissions.
