Like many successful businesses, Protective Packaging, Inc. started small. Founded in 1987 by Bob Masella and his college roommate both Packaging Engineering majors at Michigan State University PPI launched in borrowed office space in a foam fabrication factory.
Twenty years later, PPI serves the sophisticated packaging needs of some of the world's largest and most respected companies, including Honeywell, GE, BAE Systems and Teradyne. In many situations, we act as a virtual extension of our clients' production operations, by engineering, designing and creating custom packaging solutions for products whether one-of-a-kind items or mass-produced product lines.
Our clients span many industries, from electronics and medical device makers to military contractors. For all of our customers, we take pride in our ability to find optimal packaging solutions at competitive pricing by applying our deep experience in a wide variety of materials and fabrication technologies. PPI was one of the first packaging companies in New England to provide just-in-time supply of packaging materials, and we continue to lead the industry in meeting stringent JIT delivery expectations of our clients.
Headquartered in Gloucester, Massachusetts, Protective Packaging also serves customers from locations in Kentucky, New Mexico, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Mexico and Singapore.
