Precise Packaging’s new facility features two custom liquid filling lines with room for expansion, as well as a new shrink sleever for enhanced decoration of cans and jars.

As part of the company’s growth initiative, Precise Packaging has also hired several new personnel, including two chemists, a lab support technician, a sales/project engineer and a customer service representative.
“Personal care/beauty, home fragrance and OTC product companies are increasingly turning to contract filling manufacturers like Precise Packaging to help them through the formulation development, product design, supply chain management, manufacturing, filling and packaging process, so we see the addition of the new facility as a critical step for strengthening our position as a strong strategic partner for our customers,” said Shaun Gaus, CEO of Precise Packaging. “The added capacity and capabilities enabled by our second production facility broaden our product offerings so that we can continue to work side by side with our customers to deliver innovative, high-quality aerosol and liquid products that meet the latest market trends.”
