"FGS has solved our problems in so many different areas. They keep in touch with us even though we’re already their customer, and we always get answers right away. FGS answers promptly and lets us know they are working on it. That might be done by anyone on their team; plant manager, sales manager, customer service, and even their shipping department. They’re “all team” when it comes to helping us."

Endless Combinations

Our competitors can’t provide the level of endless combinations we can either. We offer 6 color printing, full die cut, and have a high-speed corrugator able to produce C, E, B, double wall CC, double wall CB, and double wall EB. We have flexible solutions that can meet your expectations no matter how complex they might be.

Cutting-Edge Equipment Makes the Difference

We completely rebuilt our carton plant from the ground up adding 4 brand new high-tech machines. Because of this, we now lead the industry in automation. Why should that matter to you? Simply put, automation helps us define what it means to be flexible, efficient, and gives us the ability to offer competitive box prices without sacrificing quality.

We’re Constantly Innovating

We offer onsite makeup machines and machine support to help take automation to the next level for you. So rather than buying a box that’s already made up and paying for shipping costs, we can set up a machine at your site to fold and glue boxes creating huge savings on truck load shipments.

Its our innovation that really separates us from the competition. We develop new packaging solutions every day. Our cutting-edge technology from industry leading equipment and technologies help allow us to think outside the box to meet your needs. We support our customers through automation — creating huge efficiencies and cost savings over time. Our friendly, knowledgeable and experienced team adds an extra layer of value. Let our team creatively tailor solutions to all of your packaging problems.

Superior Materials and Sustainable Choices

We source our paper from the industry’s leading suppliers. As paper is our primary supply for corrugated packaging, trays and retail displays, having legitimate, trustworthy, and sustainable paper suppliers is important to the quality and reliability of our products - and ultimately the happiness of our customers. We use about 37% recycled materials in our boxes. We participate in the SFI program and choose to source paper from SFI participant vendors. Recyclability and sustainability are very important to us on every level.
