Creative Packaging Opens New Cold Chain Operation in Phoenix, Arizona

(Shelbyville, KY) March 23, 2022 – Creative Packaging Company, an industry leader in the manufacturing of cold chain products such as gel packs and pharmaceutical grade coolers, announced today the opening of their 7th manufacturing facility in Phoenix, AZ to expand the company’s reach to meet the high demand for its cold chain products. Creative Packaging also boasts manufacturing operations in Shelbyville, KY (headquarters), Vineland, NJ, Unadilla, GA, Bedford Park, IL, Fort Worth, TX, and Oakland, CA.

“We are so excited about opening our 7th manufacturing facility in Phoenix,” said Ryan Usher, VP – Sales and Marketing at Creative Packaging. “Phoenix is one of the fastest-growing business markets in the US and we decided to go big with this facility.”

Creative Packaging plans to add up to 50 jobs in the Phoenix area.  At approximately 50,000 square feet, this location will allow Creative Packaging to add capacity to its fast-growing gel pack product line, along with the ability for fulfillment work and to distribute other packaging products. By locating in Phoenix, Creative Packaging will now be able to ship products to 99% of the contiguous United States population within a 1-day transit.

Since 2000, Creative Packaging has manufactured high-quality cold chain solutions for customers shipping food and pharmaceutical goods. Creative Packaging continues to innovate in the cold chain arena, specifically gel packs. Creative Packaging offers three types of gel packs: traditional, leak-resistant, and BIODRAIN™. The BIODRAIN™ gel pack is safe to dispose of the gel solution down the drain and is the first and only USDA BioPreferred certified gel pack in the world.

Usher adds, “While one of our main goals is to innovate new cold chain products and solutions, it has been apparent for some time that Creative Packaging needed a presence in the Southwest and Phoenix was the obvious choice. With freight continuing to skyrocket in cost, this location will allow us to supply product to not just Arizona, but also Southern California, Nevada, Utah, and New Mexico, along with Mexico.”
