At PDA, we have a “National Reach, Hometown Strong” approach. Our packaging distributors are located all across North America serving companies of all shapes and sizes. You can always count on an owner-operated packaging distributor that cares about your company. Our values system, centered on people & unity, is what makes our member companies unique.
It’s not uncommon for a packaging distributor to run into a problem or challenge. This happens every day. At PDA, our members have the value of each other. Any individual in PDA can call another member company at any time and can rely on expert advice from a dedicated packaging professional. This is the core of PDA.
Commitment Beyond Packaging
Our commitment beyond packaging means two things. First, when working with our customers, we explore outside of their packaging systems to gain a unique understanding of their processes and help to save cost long-term. Second, in our own business practices, we do more than provide a product. Our roots are in community, sustainability, ethics, safety, and people.
Local Meets National
With 80 owner-operated facilities, local ingenuity is our national advantage. Across the PDA Chain, custom packaging solutions are engineered from the ground-up. Our owner-operators combine to create an unmatched national network of value and technology – all wrapped in the type of ‘make-it-happen’ personal service the competition doesn’t care to provide.
Custom Packaging Solutions
PDA is your comprehensive source for industrial packaging supplies, equipment and service. Our specialty lies in combining a wide range of products with the most efficient and cost effective machinery and equipment. This attention to detail helps us ensure all of your packaging processes are supporting your best interest.
You don’t need a distributor – you need a partner. We view our customers as partners in our holistic approach to packaging, unmatched service and support, and commitment to helping our partners grow their businesses. By dedicating ourselves as partners, we build life-long relationships that allow everyone to succeed.
Our packaging experts have earned their titles through decades of experience in the packaging world. By working with one of our packaging experts you will meet the highest quality in packaging that comes along with passion and pride in being part of the PDA community.
Succeeding By Improving Others
PDA is committed to developing custom packaging solutions. We marry engineering and technology with environmentally-responsible practices to deliver consistency in customer relations, services, products, and handling. With a community-first approach, we are the complete source for product diversity, knowledge and education, and ingenuity in packaging.
At PDA our customers are our number one priority. If we find a solution that benefits a customer but does not benefit us, we are committed to delivering that solution. Our own best interest is a lower priority as we know that we only succeed if our customers are fully satisfied.
Engineering & Technology
Without the latest technology it is impossible for our customers to function at the highest level of efficiency. To us, engineering and technology means:
- Staying on the leading edge of packaging technology to ensure the solutions we provide are enduring
- Noticing if one of our customers is using technology that is dated, and helping them transition to up-to-date technology
- Employing staff who are invested in creating and finding the most advanced solutions
- Devoting resources to exploring new ways in all realms
