Germantown Corrugated Box Supplier

Your Local Packaging Manufacturer Right Here in Germantown

What can Nelson Container do for your dynamic product demands? We can streamline your packaging process, opening your business to new opportunities for growth and expansion.

Milwaukee’s central location in the US makes it a great place to manufacture dynamic products and ship them countrywide or worldwide. This is why Nelson Container established itself just outside of Milwaukee, in Germantown. Subsequently, it makes for the best possible response times for our clients right down the road here. It's simply the best option to fulfill your packaging demands.

Responding to demand volatility and shortening response times are how local businesses can skip the race to the bottom. Nelson Container is here to make sure your packaging moves as quickly as you do.

Protective Inner Foam Packaging

After the corrugated carton, this is the most important consideration for intact product delivery. The foam inserts in a package stop an item from tilting, tipping, shaking, and rattling; they keep an item stationary inside its packaging.

While in transport, movement and road imperfections vibrate packages. Foam inserts keep the items inside of those packages from changing their center of gravity. They also keep edges and points of items from tearing through packaging, allowing the shell to maintain its protective quality.

We are able to test for how a package will perform in these conditions without ever leaving our building. A big thanks to in-house ISTA testing1A, 1B, 1D, 2A, and 2B—for that one. Nelson Container makes sure your packages are built to withstand any conditions that may possibly be thrown at it while in transit.

Quick Response Manufacturing

If you're coming to us, there's a good chance your last package manufacturer failed you. They may not have been able to meet your needs.

We can.

We employ a special ordering system called eKban allowing customers to place orders easily. It cuts out the need for purchase orders, confirmation, and other back/forth communications that would make the process slower. This system is part of our QRM business model. In the end, QRM gets your packaging made and out to you within 24 hours. Talk about fast.

Package Assembly

With Nelson Container, you can have your custom packaging shipped pre-assembled and ready to use. There’s no need to have your employers folding cardboard into boxes, punching out handles, and inserting foam inner packaging—and there’s no chance of the packaging being assembled incorrectly. Your packages arrive and all you have to do is put your products inside them.

The Beast Means (Good) Business for Businesses

Nelson Container’s largest box making machine, a jumbo folder/gluer, allows us to create large, jumbo or oversized corrugated boxes faster and cheaper than anyone else in or around Germantown.

There's more to our boxes than just a big cube of paper. We can add anything from internal dividers to cushioning foam inserts and anti-static materials to keep your goods safe in transit. With 9 different flute profiles available in single, double or even triple walled configurations, we can design and produce the perfect corrugated box for virtually any large shipment.

Difference Between Corrugated Packaging and Cardboard Boxes

"Cardboard" is used to refer to any kind of flat paper packaging. Most of the time people say cardboard when they mean corrugated. Corrugated can be identified by the unique "fluting" between flat layers which gives the packaging slightly more volume while offering much more support. You're probably looking for corrugated, not cardboard. Learn more about the advantages of corrugated over cardboard.
