How we do it? Premier Plastics has developed a simple four-phase packaging production process where the phases are designed to be flexible and collaborative, allowing for rapid turnarounds and cost saving adjustments. Our consistent and systematic execution of moving concepts from the drawing board to the plant floor ensures that we always deliver the highest quality and most innovative solutions to our customers, saving both time and money.

Phase 1 Design & Development

Phase 1.1
Defining the Packaging Challange
Discovery and Partnership
During the discovery phase we collaborate closely with clients to identify packaging objectives, examine functional and aesthetic packaging requirements, and select the right materials. We work together to understand your specific needs for a project and evaluate your packaging challenges from every angle.
Phase 1.2
Custom Design
Because One Size Doesn't Fit All
We believe that the best packaging designs are attractive, eco-friendly, and benefit the consumer by providing a unique user experience. Once we’ve completed the discovery process, we take all the information we gathered during this phase and create initial designs and concept drawings. By placing the customer experience at the heart of our design process, we add more than just functionality to our designs. We try to solve problems in order to improve user comfort with simple and innovative solutions, while simultaneously keeping all manufacturing processes efficient and cost effective.
Phase 1.3
Concept Engineering & Prototyping
Rapid, Cost-effective Validation
After initial designs have been approved, we utilize the latest CAD and 3D printing technology to create 3D sample molds and generate a prototype. Each prototype gives a visual and tangible representation of the final package and allows us to test for fit and function. This approach allows us to vet concepts quickly and cost effectively.

Phase 2 Rapid Prototype & Tooling

Phase 2.1
On-Time Tooling
Reducing Development Time and Quickly Adapting to Changing Needs
Our in-house tool design and engineering capabilities allow us to provide fast turnarounds for our clients, which is particularly helpful for time-sensitive projects. By combining our team's extensive knowledge and skills with the most advanced computerized controls we create the highest quality customized tooling.
Phase 2.2
Production Molds
The Best Materials, Machinery and most Efficient Production
For our production molds we only use aluminum to deliver the highest quality thermoformed plastic parts. All of our machinery is electronically controlled to maintain temperature, vacuum pressure and timing for the highest accuracy. Although each project at Premier Plastics requires customized tooling, we help reduce costs by utilizing master mold and master tooling systems.
Phase 2.3
Tool & Mold Storage
Ensuring Optimal Performance in the Future
Proper storage and safe keeping of tools ensures rapid turnaround for future orders. We make sure that after production runs tools are carefully catalogued, stored and maintained. At Premier Plastics we take care of your property as if it’s our own.

Phase 3 Production & Manufacturing

Phase 3.1
Exceptional Product Protection and Promotion
Manufacturing thermoformed packaging is at the heart of what we do at Premier Plastics. Founded in 1989, we have developed innovative solutions for the consumer retail, nutraceutical and medical markets for more over 26 years. Our superior packaging solutions are grounded in the constant collaboration between our design, tooling, and manufacturing departments, ensuring that your project is aligned with the manufacturing technology that will deliver the protection and visibility your products need. We creatively balance the competing needs of marketing, procurement and sustainability to provide solutions that are both cost effective and user-friendly.
Phase 3.2
Tailor-made Packaging
Thermoforming is a very versatile method of packaging many items in many different industries. At Premier Plastics we provide a wide variety of thermoformed packaging solutions, ranging from certified medical grade materials for the medical/dental and nutraceutical industries, FDA approved materials for the food packaging industries and even anti-static packaging for the computer & electronics industries, as well as materials for retail packaging. Thermoforming is a technique by which a rigid plastic sheet is heated and stretched over a custom designed mold that mimics the shape of your product. When the plastic sheet cools down, it retains the shape of the mold, ensuring a tight and customized fit. The plastic is then trimmed and assembled with your product inside to create a finished product.
Phase 3.3
Stretch Pak
Enhanced Product Visibility
Premier Plastics now also offers Stretch Pak packaging solutions. Stretch Pak showcases your products in full view and maximizes product display and appeal through a very clear yet flexible plastic film. It provides great protection and also allows consumers to see your product from all sides, so they can inspect the front and back before buying. Not only is Stretch Pak a cost-effective alternative to blister or clamshell packaging, it’s a strong tamper-evident solution with optimal marketing appeal.
Phase 3.4
Quality Assurance
The Best Design is only as good as its Production Execution
At Premier Plastics we know that in order to produce the highest quality packaging, we must uphold impeccable quality control standards. Our facility is ISO 9001:2015 compliant and we are guided by the principles of good manufacturing practices (GMPs). We are dedicated to delivering only excellence and to meet our customers’ Quality needs. Every step in the production lifecycle is carefully monitored overseen by experienced technicians. We statistically control our processes to ensure quality and manufacturing repeatability. This allows us to always maintain the highest quality standards.

Phase 4 Fulfillment & Distribution

Phase 4.1
Delivering More than just a Package
Ensuring that your packaging solutions are delivered on time is a natural extension of our thermoforming services. We offer assembly, packaging, and shipping of products to help keep your costs down and keep projects moving efficiently.
Phase 4.2
