Specializing in Optimal Cushioning Systems

Our engineers know firsthand that designing the proper supports for your item is just as critical as determining the best container for it. Depending on your asset, you may need material to dampen shock and vibration or advanced materials such as polyethylene or polyurethane foams to create the required cushion.

When designing your item’s cushioning scheme, we consider:

  • Weight
  • Density
  • Shock value
  • Fragility
  • Vibration
  • Recovery
  • And more

Properly securing your contents inside the box or crate is the final step to ensuring your shipment will be protected from the demands it may face in the shipping environment. Our goal is to secure your asset responsibly and get to its destination damage-free.
