California, USA – On March 4, 2022, Packform sent out checks to businesses in America to buy packaging products on their platform with no further obligation.
Packaging is very diverse and complex, and, as such, the industry has evolved to be highly fragmented, employs an aging salesforce, and hasn’t adopted digital technology. Sales staff and brokers spend 80-90% of their time on account management functions (chasing quotes, checking delivery quantities, adjusting customer invoices, etc.) rather than focussing on sales and business development. Combine that with highly capital-intensive operating structures (warehouses, stock, staff, etc.) depending on antiquated systems and processes. What you find is an industry ripe for disruption.
Packform is the technology company disrupting the 926 billion dollar global packaging industry. Co-founded by entrepreneurs Philip Weinman, Preston Geeting, and Peter Williams, it is the world’s first managed marketplace for buying and selling stock and custom packaging. Packform has seen exponential growth since its U.S. launch and has won several awards recognizing its status as the fastest-growing packaging technology company globally.
Packform has created a one-stop-shop marketplace for all things packaging, making the process for shipping faster, cheaper, and more efficient. They are currently putting their money where their mouth is and running a check campaign to showcase their confidence in their company. They are betting their bottom line on consumers’ happiness with their service.
