Consider ExPak–The Fast, Reliable, and Cost-Effective Packaging System

The Nefab ExPak system is a step above any other packaging solution on the market today. We can say that because, as an industrial transport manufacturer, we know what it takes to make customizable packaging with a wide range of options that can withstand today’s challenging supply chain demands.

What sets ExPak apart is that it is a nail less, collapsible solution that combines superior Expak Image 1strength, weight, and volume utilization. Made of plywood and steel, ExPak can be configured to meet any packaging requirement and is perfect for all types of products including light-to-heavy, sensitive, and extremely valuable items.

The packaging system saves money right from the start: it is delivered flat, which saves space and shipping costs and they take up significantly less storage space in your facility than traditional wooden crates. Nail-free assembly of the boxes is quick, easy, and improves workplace safety.

A large selection of stock sizes is readily available with short lead times to meet the varying demands of business. Our prefabricated boxes offer significant cost savings and our engineers have the capabilities and expertise to customize designs and configurations. The materials we use for these boxes is certified as safe for export and meets all international phytosanitary regulations (ISPM #15). Expak Image 2

Numerous closing systems are available for the Nefab ExPak. Choosing the best type of closure depends on how the boxes will be used. Closing systems offered include a standard tongue that is suitable for boxes that do not need to be opened often throughout the supply chain; spring clip and detachable tongue are ideal in applications when packaging needs to be opened and closed several times; and the plastic clip that is easy to assemble and remove and can be used several times.

The Nefab ExPak system offers these key benefits:

• Boxes are strong and durable to protect products against variable transportation Expak Image 3conditions, long-term storage, and climate change
• Stock and custom configurations meet any specification
• Order only what you need, more supplies can be ordered and delivered quickly
• Collapsible design and lightweight materials save money and storage space

The ExPak plywood box packaging solution provides for safe and reliable transportation of products in a cost efficient system. Our proven track record of delivering outstanding global industrial packaging solutions like ExPak, and other options such as export packaging, speak highly for both our intentions and customer needs.

Nefab Americas Anticipating 2015

Nefab Americas had a wonderful 2014 with growth in products and services to meet the needs of the expanding global packaging and logistics market. And 2015 promises to be another year filled with exciting developments.

In 2014 we continued our mission for packaging optimization. We worked closely with each customer to determine the best way to reduce total costs and improve the supply chain’s environmental impact.  Our Complete Packaging Solutions service continually takes into account costs, products, and issues to create the most effective packaging and logistics solutions.

By offering in-house additional packaging products, our custonefabmers continued to have one source for all their packaging needs. Multi-materials handling enables us to source and supply inner packaging and accessory products for additional protection during transport. These products include corrosion protection, cushioning, blocking and filling, ESD, and inner fittings.

The demand for our ExPak grew this past year as more companies realized the value in our durable, easy to assemble and disassemble expendable packaging. The ExPak is available in a wide range of sizes but in this past year we noticed a need for larger expendable offerings and got to work on a solution.

In 2015 we will introduce two new products: ExPak XL and CratePak-O. Both of these products accommodate very large components which are a consistent challenge in packaging and shipping. These easy to use systems enable packages to be opened and closed several times throughout the supply chain without affecting performance. We are sure that these two new products will ideally meet the requirements of industries such as Energy, Telecom, and Aerospace.

Even with 50 years of experience we are still innovating and improving. We listen to our customers and are constantly looking for ways to improve total costs and environmental impact. Just as we innovate product designs, we also continue to make internal company improvements. In January we hosted an open house at our new facility in Newark, CA.

We are planning to attend and exhibit at many industry trade shows again this year. Visit with us at ISTA TransPak Forum in April, Breakbulk Americas in October, and PowerGen in December. We will let you know of more details as the shows get closer.

We have seen many changes in the industry and continue as innovators. What sets us apart from the competition is that we are continually striving to make product improvements and additions to fully meet the needs of our customers. As products change, we do too. That’s what makes us leaders in packaging and logistics solutions.

Nefab Americas is looking forward to continuing to serve you in 2015.
