BoldtSmith Packaging Consultants is a recognized leader in structural packaging design, testing and optimization for retail, industrial and e-commerce packaging and shipping crates.
We are a team of experts with a variety of backgrounds. This allows us to brainstorm creative solutions using advanced design software and prototyping tools. We are able to design packaging, cut samples, and test for product damage. Our clients retain ownership of the package specifications, which enables them to get more competitive pricing quotes from multiple suppliers.
We are hired by companies manufacturing products in need of packaging optimization. Our clients may have an existing packaging team who is overburdened with projects and require our assistance. Other clients do not have a packaging team and hire us as their packaging engineer without the added financial obligation of having a full-time associate.
