What We Do
Bottom line: we build solutions. With a rich history in research, design, engineering, and technical service, we are prepared to create your solution.
We solve complex packaging problems by bridging your needs with our expertise.
Innovative packaging delights the customer, captures market share, and can influence industry trends. PHOENIX creates distinctive, memorable expressions of the brands we serve — brands that pop off the shelves.
Innovation is just an idea, until it changes what we do.
Your success becomes our success when we’re working towards shared goals.
As we move into new markets, the PHOENIX focus is on forging the measurable results that come from smart partnerships. We work to understand your processes and products like they are our own.
Many packages and containers are customized for their contents, some even personalized, like phone cases. How does Phoenix take customization to that level: where packaging feels personalized and exceptional? It starts with active listening. We strive to understand your goals and challenges, from your production line to the market. Then we study your competition, so we can we design solutions with differentiation that builds loyalty exclusively for your brand.
Each new design or redesign is thoughtfully merged with existing products, to meet budget guidelines and reduce time to market.
Customization is a holistic progression. From cap, to bottle, to package, to branding, to customer; it is a way of thinking with the future already envisioned. With PHOENIX customization, great brands skyrocket, good brands break through, and new brands become the new standard. We make it easy to keep reinventing as the product or line evolves. Future-forward design also enables long-term planning for maximum cost saving. Staying ahead of customer needs is not a choice: it is a basic premise of brand loyalty.
We’re redefining packaging collaboration from conception to production. 21st-century design thinking has moved us beyond our foundation in closures. We are rising as thought leaders in intelligent packaging that serves customers, and as always, your success drives our own.
As a world-class, relevant, privately held company, we are dedicated to quality. We fulfill our mission when we evoke genuine delight in our customers, with packaging that works, every time.
We are committed to remaining an industry leader by:
- Developing and launching new types of closures and packages.

- Multiplying our efforts to reduce our environmental impact.
As a world class, sixth generation, family owned company, we exist to do things the right way. We fulfill our mission when we evoke genuine delight in finding shared success with our customers.
