EastCoast Packaging takes pride in getting to know customers in an effort to ensure excellent customer service. Please take a moment to learn about the company and experienced staff, who look forward to meeting and exceeding any and every packaging need.

Company Story

Founded in 1995, EastCoast Packaging started by supplying poly bags to the hosiery industry. Within a few short years, the company expanded into a complete packaging source by adding corrugated boxes, setup boxes, and a fulfillment service. In 2004, EastCoast Packaging targeted die cutting as a growth segment of the business, which led to the acquisition of full-service die-cutting equipment.

To reduce the amount of outsourcing, EastCoast Packaging has recently added in-house foil stamping, embossing, folding and gluing, and printing to its roster of services. Rounding out its lineup was a 64” guillotine cutter, establishing the company as a full-service packaging manufacturer. The services ultimately benefit the customer because of enhanced efficiency and quicker turnaround times.

EastCoast Packaging’s philosophy is consistency, quality, and exceptional customer service. The company continuously matures in the marketplace by providing reliable and innovative solutions and exceeding its customers’ needs and expectations.
