Productiv – Contract Packaging Services in Charlotte
Customers are drawn to products that give them a pleasant experience, and packaging is such an integral part of what drives repeat purchases. Skimping out on packaging means sinking your chances at brand-loyal customers. But a nice packaging experience doesn’t come without its own set of challenges – a multi-step assembly and custom handwork can be required to get the box just right. With each added step of complexity, your packaging costs could go up. How can you perfect your product without breaking your budget?
Especially when it comes to ‘last mile’ assembly or secondary packaging, supply chain managers often find themselves at a loss. Some resort to the expensive choice of hiring temporary workers to plow through the handwork and get the items shipped on time. Others hire additional full-time employees and make amendments to the workflow that can really compromise fulfilment schedules. There’s a third way. Enter: Productiv Contract Packaging Services.
If you’re interested in upping your packaging game without spiraling out of control on labor or workflow trade-offs, contact Productiv in Charlotte at (804) 893-5358 to chat about our Contract Packaging. We’ve offered quality packaging services in Charlotte since we’ve been open, and over time we’ve developed a reputation as one of the top providers in the state. Our clients are winning manufacturers and brands that need their products kitted, packaged and delivered to customers and other retail outlets.

Embedded Contract Packaging
Because of how their owned facilities and contracts are designed, some companies we work with cannot relocate contract packaging to our Charlotte facility. With Productiv, that’s no problem at all and hiring a contract packager might still make sense for you. That’s because we’re experts in sending our teams to work at your site to complete projects – in just the same way they would at our home facilities. And you don’t have to worry about setting aside time for your FTEs – we provide on-site supervision so productivity and quality oversight are taken care of.
