ProStar offers efficiency and excellence in contract packaging
(which means a lot less stress for our clients)
In contract packaging, every day is different. Every job is unique. This requires flexibility, ingenuity and technical know-how on the part of our leaders and team members. It means that when a customer needs a big project that absolutely must be finished in short order, our response is “Let’s get started.”
We’re part of a family of contract packaging companies,
including South Atlantic Packaging in North Carolina and Indiana and Versatile Packagers in Florida, further enhancing our capabilities to mobilize crews at a moment’s notice, scale up or down as needed, work 24/7 and deliver jobs on time, within budget and meet every quality standard.
With five strategic locations, we have:
- A leadership team with several hundred years of collective experience in contract packaging, to anticipate and adapt
- Nearly a million square feet in production area, to scale
- More than 700 team members, to deliver
- Teams currently embedded in seven customer locations, showing results
And we’re close to your customers: our five stand-alone locations are within 225 miles of 153 million Americans.
Our goal: To be America’s go-to contract packager.
What will enable us to earn that position? Here’s a message from our CEO Julian Bossong.

What we offer (that makes us a great partner for manufacturers)
ProStar Packaging leads the way for companies who need a flexible, knowledgeable, quality certified partner in contract packaging. Let us help you from start to finish or jump in when the pressure is on.
We’re proud to offer Pack Manager, the leader in tracking technology, to our clients. This leading edge software allows for lot-code, date code and product recall features. We also use Q-Cloud to track and ensure we meet every quality standard.
ProStar is SQF Edition 8 certified by the Safety Quality Institute, which assures buyers and customers that food has been packaged and handled according to the highest standards. We also offer Kosher, FDA, and EPA Certifications. Products are tested daily, and even hourly, for quality assurance.
ProStar partners with highly automated manufacturing companies and third party logistics providers to offer onsite contract packaging embeds. We hire the workforce, provide quality assurance and get the job done — while you focus on something else.
ProStar Packaging is in Reading conveniently located about 60 miles northwest of Philadelphia and ideally situated a gateway to the northeastern United States. Our prime location along the East Coast connects us with major highway, rail and airport systems for faster, more cost-efficient transportation. We can also embed to make logistics a snap.
What works for one project might not be the right solution for another. We attribute part of our success to being flexible. Need us to rework 100,000 packages? No problem. Need us to assemble 30,000 kits in a short period of time? Let’s get started. We’re problem solvers. And we’d love to help you.
And that’s a good thing. Our leadership has a vast amount of experience in contract packaging, leading teams, logistics, quality control and working with high-tech machinery. And they’re also nice.
We’re supported by Wheelhouse,
which provides fundamental, best-in-class business processes, systems, and equipment to our family of contract packaging companies, so we can focus on what we do best: serving our customers with quality, agility, and the personal attention to which we’re dedicated.
