The Packaging Engineers at the IQ support every Pregis product category with compelling, high-performance packaging solutions designed to withstand the rigors of the most challenging distribution environment.

Instead of evaluating each in a vacuum, they should be addressed holistically as a decision made in one area often impacts the other two. Let our team tackle all three at once and deliver a comprehensive analysis including easy-to-implement recommendations.
Our deep understanding of trends in the distribution environment, coupled with world class systems and solutions allow us to address a wide variety of markets including automotive, aerospace, ecommerce, food and CPG (Consumer Package Goods) to name drop a few.
