Proteus Packaging: Grows capabilities with key technologies, certifications


Colin Hutt


FRANKLIN, Wis. – Proteus Packaging, an international supplier of paperboard packaging solutions, has continued its commitment to meet the evolving needs of customers with state-of-the-art equipment and key industry certifications.

Last year, Proteus became the first U.S. business to install the Heidelberg XL 145 press, which furthered the company’s ability to create specialized packaging solutions with short lead times. Among the benefits of this high-speed press are six-color printing capabilities and a unique inline aqueous coater.

The company is also driving excellence through its key industry certifications. In addition to being cGMP and ISO compliant, Proteus has an excellent rating from AIB International, a third-party agency committed to protecting the safety of the food supply chain. This highly sought-after distinction signifies that Proteus has specific procedures in place – from cleaning practices to maintenance – that safeguard the quality of food items throughout the entire packaging and distribution process.

The company’s growth in these areas is part of a long-term push to meet the increasingly complex requirements of its clients, which includes the company’s move in 2006 to a new 245,000-square-foot facility in Franklin, Wis.

“The pursuit of leading-edge equipment and certifications furthers our goal of being a versatile, reliable partner for a wide range of packaging needs,” said Tim Wayman, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Proteus.
