History

Our History...

In 1999, after spending ten years with a multi-billion dollar corporation in the sales and distribution of product packaging materials, Mary Swanson left to start her own company, Swan Packaging Inc. A former National Account Director, her experience establishing strategic business relationships became the cornerstone for success at SPI.

With humble beginnings, Mary sold out of her home and managed all aspects of the company. Within a year, new employees were needed and an outside office was acquired. The company began to take off. In 2000, SPI acquired a major dairy and meat company in the area as clients and they still remain loyal, valued customers.

In 2003, SPI implemented a new global procurement strategy. Our client base rapidly expanded beyond the Midwest to include multi-national household brands, including the McDonald's milk label and Walgreen's chocolate packaging.

In 2006, a dynamic team was assembled with expertise in all aspects of flexible product packaging including product development, graphics and customer service.

In 2007, after years of experience in dairy lidding, SPI establishes its own label, Sealtite and is recognized as a leader in the industry.
