SeafoodSource caught up with Heidenreich – who will serve as managing director of PPC moving forward – to discuss the intricacies of the acquisition and the trends guiding seafood packaging and shipping innovations into the future.

SEAFOODSOURCE: What can we expect from PPC and Pacific Packaging Products moving forward into 2020?

HEIDENREICH: In our product categories, we expect to roll out new, fully recyclable offerings to help our customers increase their goals for sustainability. Expect to see effective alternatives to foam for insulation. Our merger also brings with it a strong automation component where we can now design, deliver, and install labor-saving solutions for our customers whose growth is limited by the availability of labor or space. Another exciting development of our merger is that we will be rolling out Pacific's vendor-managed inventory program, where we can take on the burden of inventory management for a single category or for all the packaging that a customer uses. We are very excited to share these new capabilities with our customers and look forward to the coming new year.

Letter from the President:

We are excited to share with our valued customers and the seafood industry news that will have a positive impact on our service ability and offerings.

Packaging Products Corporation merged with Pacific Packaging Products on 9/1/19 with the clear intent of growing our product offerings, increasing our presence in the seafood industry and providing enhanced customer support.

For 58 years we, at PPC, have concentrated our efforts on supplying the best in packaging for live, fresh and frozen seafood. Our facilities in New Bedford and Miami cover the areas east of the Mississippi well and we plan to continue this service with additional lines of packaging items that our customers need and use today. We hope to become a more complete source for your packaging and operational needs.

PPC has always been a family business focused on great customer service. We are happy to report that Pacific Packaging Products is also a family owned and run company with a 67-year history of excellent service. With Pacific's scale as one of the largest independent packaging companies in the US and PPC's expertise in seafood and perishables packaging, the synergies of our joining are significant and unique.

I am very happy and proud to merge with a fine family run company whose emphasis is on customer service. In this age of mass consolidation it is good to know that both companies are built on personal service to our customers and that PPC's experience and focus in servicing the highly perishable food industry will stay intact. Our sales force and personnel will be the same and I will continue to run this operation. Feel free to call me with any questions.

We very much appreciate your business, remain committed to earning your continued support, and look forward to serving you in a bigger and better way into the future.

Ted Heidenreich
PPC President

For several decades back when I was growing oysters I relied on PPC for all my custom-printed boxes, and was always impressed with their friendly and timely customer service. One call to the office and I would see their truck (usually the next day)... While most people look at packaging as just a container, Ted emphasizes the opportunity for branding and informing customers about the unique qualities of their products... Shellfish farmers have a great story when it comes to sustainability, and now the packaging industry has some very good recyclable options.
