Our Services


When should you contact us?

Our most successful clients call us early in the product development cycle. Packaging builds the brand and “pre-sells” the product. We also serve manufacturers and retailers who need to freshen an image and open new markets. We retain brand equity while adding panache, color and market appeal. Don’t wait, call us today!

What is package design & consultation?

Our team of structural and graphic designers, along with our pre-production specialists, work together with our clients to ensure your product is packaged for both presentation and preservation.

As a customer of MBC, we provide consultation for your company’s packaging program. You will be able to meet with any of our departments to discuss your requirements. Whether it be accounting, shipping, design, sales or production, you will have easy access to our team of professionals.

With over 80 years of experience in the industry, we know what packaging works and what doesn't. Our entire team consists of seasoned pros, all dedicated to serving and educating our customers to suit their requirements.

What is a digital prototype?

Our team researches your industry before structural and graphic design in order to make recommendations for an optimal package. Our objective is to help our clients make a package set apart from the rest. Using our equipment for digital sampling cutting and digitial inkjet printing directly on the sample, we provide you with the opportunity to interact with the prototype of the finished product before committing to a full run or first order.

Will your box hold up during shipment?

In this phase we ask a few critical questions to ensure a successful end result. Will the box hold up during shipping? Are you using the best and safest materials? We test existing packages as well as potential packaging before your brand goes to market. In our state of the art lab, we perform a series of quality control tests in order to provide a sustainable solution. Box performance testing answers pertinent questions such as: Are you using proper packaging? Is your current packaging structurally sound?

Do you need more than just the packaging?

We give convenience a whole new meaning. With our assembly and fulfillment services, MBC not only constructs your packaging for you, we also handle the logistics. Our team analyzed warehouse needs and works for you to maximize cubes on pallets as well as optimize ergonomics. MBC prepares and palletizes products ranging from simple to complex assembly packages. Simply send us your shipment and we take care of the rest! We’re AIB Excellent Rated so you can rest assured your food products are packaged safely within the AIB requirements.
