About Us

 

about century packagingincCentury Packaging, Inc. was founded in 1985. We are a full service company that handles all aspects of custom folding carton creation for our clients. Our services cover complete spectrum of your folding carton needs; from the prototype phase to graphic layout to manufacturing and delivery of the final product. All of our cartons are custom created and manufactured according to customer specifications. Our talented and experienced staff in our Graphics and Technical Packaging Departments consults with clients to determine appropriate package configuration, die lines, artwork, electronic file preparation, and proofs. Our team's expertise and dedication ensures total satisfaction throughout the entire process.

We are an innovative company. The majority of our equipment is state-of-the-art. We are continually investing in the latest innovations in technology.  We have invested over 8.2 million dollars in the past four years in equipment upgrades… 3 "New" Bobst Diecutters, 2 "New" Bobst Folder Gluers, 1 "New" Foil Stamper that Diecuts and Embosses, and 2 state-of-the-art Mitsubishi 6-Color printing presses. The Mitsubishi presses have the ability to coat conventionally as well as in-line UV and to run at speeds up to 16,000 sheets per hour. This type of speed allows us to run multiple jobs in one day.  Our presses run with chameleon rollers which allow the switch from UV coating to water based coating without having to change rollers. The chameleon rollers represent one of several time saving features which cut standard make ready time in half, thus enabling us to be cost effective on short runs, as well as long runs. We are also very innovative when it comes to our coating. We offer a variety of coatings from which our customers can choose; High Gloss, Matte, Soft Feel, High Rise, Reticulating, Pearlescent, etc. In addition to our coating capabilities, we can print on all types of paper substrates. We have the range of ability to run 80 lb paper up to 40pt.board caliper. We also print on Mylar. We recently purchased the Sentinel Ink Management System. This system attaches to every ink unit on our press. The system feeds our ink fountains from a cartridge and agitates the ink in every unit. This helps us maintain the same color consistency and density throughout each run. It also saves us about 15-20% in ink which is another way we are able to reduce our overall costs. After we purchased our 1st Mitsubishi printing press, we were approached by Package Printing Magazine. They did a feature article on our company. In the article, Tom Picciolo, our CEO speaks about how our company was built from the ground up and how we continually reinvest in our company. Our effort to make improvements within our company has also sparked the interest of the New Jersey Governor's Office. In October 2011, we were honored to host a visit of our plant by NJ Lieutenant

Governor, Secretary of State, Kim Guadagno, who leads the administration's efforts to improve NJ economic vitality and operates the Business Action center. The Lieutenant Governor was impressed with our ability to reinvest and grow in a declining market. Although these highlights are accredited to our dedication to excellence at our facility, it is truly best displayed by the high quality of process and product we provide. Our high quality also shows when it comes to custom designing a folding carton and E-flute liner. We provide all our customers with prototype samples which are approved for size and style prior to production. All of the design is done in-house. We do not outsource your prototype. All machines and software applications are located within our CAD Department. Our designs are made using Cimex software. This program allows us to design any size and style carton. We have a state of the art Graphics/Prepress Department. Our advanced equipment and experienced staff allow us to accept your art in a variety of formats. We have the ability to work with any type of graphic software on the market. We use the most modern computer to plate technology (CTP). With CTP technology the need for film is eliminated, saving time and money. Within minutes, we are able to transform your design into plates that will go directly onto the press. Because we use Epson Proofers, we can print proofs up to 48 inches, allowing you to get a large and accurate view of what your carton will look like before we run your job. In addition to our other departments, we have fully functional Diecutting Department. We are equipped with 4 high speed diecutters with complete stripping capabilities. Our diecutters are very accurate and precise when it comes to cutting cartons. Because we diecut on Bobst Folding Carton Diecutters, our print-to-cut registration is near perfect!

We have the ability to apply double sided tape, window material and security sensors. We offer hot stamping, embossing and debossing. We have a variety of foils from which to choose and samples are provided for your approval.

Our Finishing Department is where we fold and glue all of our cartons. Our folder gluers have different features that allow us to glue any size & style carton within reason. Our machines are equipped with state of the art glue guns. These guns can dispense hot or cold glue at any adhesion pattern at high speeds. Our Bobst gluers also have scanning capabilities. We print barcodes on the carton glue flaps which are scanned as the cartons are passing through the glue machine. This is an in-house Quality Control measure taken to prevent cross contamination of similar looking cartons. Our Quality Control standards are stringent and precisely followed by our trained and certified personnel.

Recently we invested in a built to specification, Maxson 65" Sheeter. The sheeter allows Century Packaging, Inc. to purchase rolls of paper stock instead of pre-sheeted stock. By sheeting rolls per order, Century Packaging is saving money, time and minimizing the amount of waste. This investment allows Century Packaging to have more competitive pricing as well as quicker turnaround time on orders.

Century Packaging, Inc. is also dedicated to being environmentally responsible. 100 % of our paperboard waste is recycled. We have arrangements with our larger customers to reuse and/or recycle the corrugated master cartons and corner posts used for shipping. We maintain our environmental standards by using soy-based inks, which are less harmful than their petroleum based counterparts. We are proud to be an FSC Certified company and carry their trademark. We are also ISO 9001:2008 Certified. Our reputation and recognition in the industry, our experience with a diverse variety of markets, and our equipment and manufacturing capabilities are matched by the knowledgeable and helpful team we have empowered to commit to a high level of customer service. Whether via e-mail, phone or in person, a member of our staff will always be available to you. We pride ourselves on the ability to make our customers feel as important to us as we are to them.
