FirstPak National Programs at Wertheimer Box Corporation
Wertheimer Box Corporation is an independent corrugated producer that has the ability to serve companies with multiple locations. Many corrugated users with multiple locations, are concerned that the independent producer is unable to effectively serve multiple locations and that only the integrated producers have the ability to service many locations and offer them economies of scale. To overcome this perception, Wertheimer Box became a lead member member of The Association of Independent Corrugated Converters (AICC) FirstPak program.
FirstPak is the program for AICC member companies operating in joint selling entities, serving multiple-location customers. By aligning themselves with other AICC members, the independent can better serve multi-location customers, and effectively compete for business that was largely controlled by the integrated corrugated companies. Most of the independent companies that Wertheimer Box partners with are not randomly chosen, but are companies with which we are very familiar either through experience, or, on a personal management to management level.
FirstPak has allowed us to effectively address what is important to buyers purchasing for multi-locations or on a national basis, which is competitive pricing, a single point of contact, reduction of overall packaging costs, and providing assured supply. The independent corrugated producers strive to be more responsive and flexible in terms of specialized products, services, customer needs, specialized products, and a greater focus on service.
