Gateway has successfully helped various businesses, from Fortune 500 to small entrepreneurial businesses with packaging needs. We are not a cardboard converter or a plastic manufacturer, but we work with companies like that to help design and physically package your product for shipping or retail displays to entice the public to purchase your product. The contract packaging business is a tough, no nonsense business that requires an intense focus of labor and pennies to insure the maximization of effectiveness in a very competitive market. With our full-time engineering and procurement staff, we will cost effectively find the right solution for your product, while maximizing you product availability and visibility in a competitive marketplace. Packaging is a delicate balance of costs and marketing that can make or break a product. Gateway will work with your team to develop, procure and package your product in the most efficient way possible to protect, and show off your product to the consumer. We have in the past done a variety of packaging processes such as;
  • Shrink Wrapping
  • Shrink Bundling
  • Poly-Bagging
  • Boxing (retail and shipping cartons)
  • Clip-Stripping
  • Point of Purchase Displays
In additional, we are familiar with;
  • Clamshells
  • Vacuum Pack
  • Blister Card/Pack
Each of these techniques are chosen based on the product volumes needed and if applied to the wrong volume set can cause packaging expenses to soar out of control. This is why our team can help you decide which process is right for your product. We also can provide Order Fulfillment services to physically ship you products direct to retail customers or to retailers, depending on your needs. We can take on a more extensive role in the product production process by performing various product forecasting and procurement function using our state of the art MRP system and utilizing our procurement staff. Let us help you with your needs to enable a successful product strategy.

Shipping/Distribution Services

Shipping is a very integral part of the process of manufacturing, though it is rarely thought of in this regard. Without on-time arrivals, the entire process of "Just in Time" manufacturing is futile. That is why Gateway Manufacturing leaves nothing to chance when it comes to delivery.

We have CDL and Non-CDL solutions for our customers. When you need your product, we can deliver it personally to ensure success throughout all aspects of the process.

If our delivery is small to medium size or weight, we can deliver in a 26 foot straight axle truck with load capabilities in excess of 10,000 pounds.

If your need is more extensive, we have a tractor/trailer solution with 53 foot trailers and tandem axle tractors capable of carrying the maximum load by law. Since we began manufacturing, we have not had shipping damage to the products or sub-assemblies sent to our customers.

We also have contract carriers for LTL loads with very competitive rates so that you can take advantage of our discount structures for the products of sub-assemblies we manufacture for you.

"Bringing a TOTAL SOLUTION to our customers needs is what we do BEST !"
