Creative Packaging Plus Finds Exceptional Long-Term Partnership with QC Precision Machining
For over 35 years, Creative Packaging Plus Inc, headquartered in Hilton Head, South Carolina, has been helping businesses meet design and manufacturing challenges; making products cost less by helping find more effective ways to manufacture them.
Most of the products Creative Packaging produces are related to the water heater industry. They complete processes that turn materials into finished products, such as circuit boards and plastics used in cabinets.
“When our phone rings and a customer asks for something, say, the cutting of flat plastics for use in products, we always say we’ll look into it,” says Paul Landry, president of Creative Packaging Plus. “We’re basically a job shop, a manufacturer’s representative, and we job a lot of work out.”
Job shops are small manufacturing operations that perform specialized processes (small customer orders or batch jobs) that require specific skills. When one project is finished, operations move on to the next job. Job shops serve a crucial role in bringing products to market. Through job shops, design engineers and a network of state-of-the-art manufacturers avail clients to a wide range of materials and processes – and the creativity to design innovative, cost-effective products and services.
Creative Packaging Plus relies on outside shops to perform various functions that serve this vital role in the product development process.
Needing a Reliable Partner to Deliver Exceptional Results
Until the mid-1990s, Creative Packaging Plus used a Massachusetts-based supplier for their drilling needs. The work became unsatisfactory, so the search began for a new partner. Through word of mouth, Paul learned of Shawn Devine, president of QC Precision Machining, and began a working relationship in 1997.
“We do a lot of cutting – water cuts, laser cuts, dye-cast cuts – in our business. QC Precision Machining cuts a lot of flat plastic for us,” says Paul.
QC Precision Machining now ships products to Creative Packaging Plus every week. Paul says, “What they do is very important to us, lots of machining of injection molding and other types of molding.”
Outstanding Long-Term Relationship
QC Precision Machining has provided Creative Packaging Plus with one of their most mission-critical partnerships for more than a decade now.
“We have several suppliers, but QC Precision Machining is our star pupil,” says Paul. “They’re a wonderful company. The quality of their work, the level of their service, and the relationship they’ve built with us is outstanding. They sure make life easy for us.”
