Extraordinary packaging is just the beginning
Secondary packaging can make or break your brand, sales, and your bottom line. It needs to be of the right quality and the right price – and delivered on time.
We believe you shouldn’t have to hand this critical element over to a supplier and hope for the best. Instead, you need a partner that cares.
We take packaging personally.
And we’re proud of it.
We’re here to deliver what you need and about making the journey as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
Our personal investment in your success shows up in everything we do:
How we focus on building relationships based on trust, transparency, and thoughtfulness.
How we go to the ends of the earth to deliver what – and when – we promised.
And how no matter what obstacles arise, you know you can trust us to help.
Where we’ve come from
In the early 2000s, IPL was a modest Hong Kong-based company that sourced and supplied promotional packaging. When international trade in China opened up, opportunities in the manufacturing space flourished and we were tasked with manufacturing custom packaging for the legendary Chivas Bros.
Things grew quickly from there. We threw ourselves into mastering the intricacies of our trade and building solid relationships with the best factories and suppliers across the world.
Our obsession with excellence paid off.
Our reputation grew, and so did our client base.
Soon, brands from all industries across Europe and North America asked us to work with them. To keep up with the growing demand – and to be closer to our clients – we opened offices in the UK & USA. We opened our Eastern European office in 2018 so we could offer our clients additional production options.
Fast forward till today: we’re proud to be at the forefront of creativity; constantly pushing the boundaries of design, sustainability, and innovation.
As we continue expanding our reach, impact, and capabilities, we’ll always be the people who don’t stop asking ourselves: “how can we better serve our clients today?”
Where we’re going...
The values that define us
We’re not just “another external supplier”. We base our decisions, recommendations and advice on what will serve you best. There are no hidden agendas or conflicting loyalties. Our personal investment means we go the extra mile (or ten) to get things done perfectly. Without you asking.
We don’t promise something we can’t deliver. We don’t keep you in the dark. We definitely don’t withhold information you need to know. Even if it’s uncomfortable. You can trust us to talk straight, so you know exactly where you stand at any time.
We’re problem solvers
In a wildly unpredictable industry, you need a fearless warrior that doesn’t freeze in the face of obstacles. When challenges appear, we don’t shrug our shoulders and dump the problems onto you. We flex our “get-it-done” muscles and use whatever creativity, resources, and tenacity to solve the issues.
We don’t do mediocre. We don’t settle for the status quo. We set the bar high; promoting innovation, driving efficiencies, and maintaining our rigorous quality standards.
We’re genuinely nice people
We don’t hide behind fancy-schmancy titles, corporate hierarchy or faceless chatbots. You work directly with our senior executives. You’ll feel comfortable reaching out at any time, knowing you’ll get a speedy, helpful, and informed response.
We take everything personally – starting with our company culture.
With an 85% staff retention rate, we’re incredibly proud of the loyalty and enthusiasm that underpins our excellence.
