August 26, 2021 – The United Group (TUG) is pleased to share an exciting announcement among our members: Packaging Systems is acquiring Small Quantity Boxes. Both have been TUG members for several years.
Dennis Tegrootenhuis, President of Small Quantity Boxes, started the company nearly 30 years ago. Since then, the company has evolved into a leading custom and stock packaging provider in Northeast Wisconsin. Their products are manufactured using the highest quality raw materials and the latest box-making technology. According to Dennis, Small Quantity Boxes compliments larger companies by taking on quantities they don’t want to run. Additionally, while many organizations have increased their minimums, Small Quantity Boxes can meet both low and high production orders – with turnaround in as little as 24 hours.
Packaging Systems is also well-known in the industry for providing customized packaging systems across the United States. Their goal is to offer customers the lowest cost per load in an effective and environmentally friendly way. “Not one year has passed in the last 30 years where we haven’t experienced some sort of growth,” Dennis said. “We want to continue this upward trend, and I believe Packaging Systems is our way to do so.”
Dennis and his team at Small Quantity Boxes are excited to be merging with a company like Packaging Systems that has many of the same morals and values as they do. “It’s who you surround yourself with that makes you better at what you do,” he said. “They’re exactly what we were looking for in this next stage.” Together, Small Quantity Boxes and Packaging Systems will create an incredible competitive advantage, including advancements in packaging, robotics, technology, and process.
TUG members will also benefit from this acquisition. With Small Quantity Boxes under their belt, Packaging Systems can now fulfill the box design, what goes into the box, how it is assembled, the tape, recycling, and more. They handle the entire process from beginning to end for the companies they work with.
