ProStar Contract Packaging Offers Efficiency and Excellence in Contract Packaging
In contract packaging, every day is different. Every job is unique. And that’s why we believe customization is key. We’ll use our experience and know-how to create a plan that will match and exceed safety standards, meet deadlines and save money. It’s our job to understand your job. We can scale up our workforce in a days notice, so when our clients call to say we need 5,000 kits created by Monday, our answer is “let’s get started.”
ProStar has an SQF Rating of 98/Excellent
ProStar was re-certified in 2019 with a SQF Rating of 98/Excellent. That’s the highest category in the U.S. As our Quality Assurance Director Kim Salvatore says, “It takes an entire team working together to get this kind of score — and it can only be achieved by practicing consistent quality and safety checks throughout the whole year.” An SQF rating this high makes us a great match for all CPG manufacturers, especially those in the pet food and beer industries.
Manufacturing problems are no problem here.
If you’re looking for a packaging company that can handle requests from a simple wrap to a sophisticated supply chain project using cutting edge tracking software, we’d love to talk to you. Do you have a project that needs expert care? Contact us today at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Expertise in Contract Packaging
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.
24/7 Cloud-Based Inventory and Production Tracking
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.
SQF 8, Kosher, FDA, EPA and SAI Global Certifications
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, EPA and SAI Global Certifications. Products are tested daily, and even hourly, for quality assurance.
A Well-Trained, Scalable Workforce to Meet Your Project Needs
ProStar can quickly scale up or down our workforce to finish jobs on time, on budget.
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.
Location, Location, Location
ProStar is located in the borough of Pottstown, Pennsylvania – 40 miles northwest of Philadelphia and 18 miles southeast of Reading, on the Schuylkill River. Our location is ideal for highway and rail transportation. Philadelphia Airport is just one hour away.
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.
