CardPak named as first NextLife Packaging Group paperboard packaging manufacturing partner


NextLife Packaging Group announced a new partnership at PACK EXPO to help promote the company's

100 percent post-consumer recycled (PCR) PET blisters for club and warehouse retail packaging. The provider of sustainable solutions for the consumer packaged goods industry has named CardPak, a supplier specializing in custom engineered packaging designs and solutions for merchandising strategies that utilize carded packaging and specialty paperboard converting, as the first carded packaging converter to promote the blisters for club and warehouse retail packaging.


Through a select network of manufacturer partners, NextLife Packaging Group provides a range of sustainable packaging solutions to consumer product companies, retail brands and retailers. The NextLife Packaging Group network provides branded packaging, resins and materials containing up to 100 percent PCR content for both food and non-food applications, backed with life cycle assessments and a wide range of marketing support.


"We are pleased to expand our roster of preferred partners committed to offering high quality, substantiated and practical sustainable packaging solutions," said Marc Goldenberg of NextLife. "CardPak is well established, has built a positive reputation in the marketplace and has been committed to offering sustainable paperboard packaging for many years. We are confident they will be a valuable addition to our portfolio of best-in-class providers throughout the packaging supply chain."


"Our clients have been very satisfied with using NextLife's 100 percent  PCR PET for blisters and clamshells with no change in performance, quality and consistency when used in conjunction with our cards or ClubPak products," said Tony Petrelli, president of CardPak. "We see great value in forming this partnership, which will allow us to offer a range of solutions encompassing more than just materials. Our clients can take advantage of the unique strengths that both NextLife and CardPak have to offer."
