Emerald Packaging is one of the largest flexible packaging manufacturers on the West Coast and one of the biggest suppliers of produce packaging in the country. We offer short lead times, high-quality printing and specialty packaging.
Unlike many family businesses, we proudly and aggressively reinvest profits back into our company. During 2011 we've demonstrated our financial strength and commitment to remaining a technology leader by investing over $5 million in new equipment, including a state-of-the-art ten color German printing press.
Our 150,000 square-foot manufacturing facility in Union City, CA operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our sales personnel and 10,000 square foot warehouse in Irapuato, Guanajuato, Mexico provide a broad range of packaging to the local produce industry, from unprinted liners to printed salad roll stock.
Emerald Packaging offers customers a variety of packaging solutions. We provide everything from wicketed polyethylene bags to laminated stand-up pouches with High Definition 10 color printing. Our converting department not only manufactures zipper and hermetic seal bags, but also produces Inno-lok zipper and laser microperforated and hot needle perforated flexible packages or roll stock. We provide both surface printed and laminate, making Emerald Packaging a one stop shop for your flexible packaging needs.
Our company has also become a leader in sustainable packaging. We offer products, including corn-based plastics and cellulose materials that meet the stringent compostable standards set forth in ASTM D 6400. We've also helped customers design packages to reduce plastic use. Within California we've helped craft legislation to clarify whether a package can be called biodegradable. We've also helped pass laws that regulate plastic pellet containment to ensure no pellets end up in the marine environment.
