Design & Development
Discovery and Partnership
During the discovery phase we collaborate closely with clients to identify packaging objectives, examine functional and aesthetic packaging requirements, and select the right materials. We work hand-in-hand to understand our client's specific needs for each project and evaluate your packaging challenges from every angle.
We believe that the best packaging designs are attractive, eco-friendly, and benefit the consumer by providing a unique experience. Once our discovery process is completed, we take the information gathered during this phase and begin creating initial design and concept drawings. By placing the customer experience at the heart of our design process, we add more than just functionality to our design. We try to solve problems in order to improve user comfort with simple and innovative solutions, while simultaneously keeping all manufacturing processes efficient and cost effective.
Concept Engineering & Prototyping
Rapid, Cost-effective Validation
After initial designs have been approved, we utilize the latest CAD and 3D printing technology to create 3D sample molds and generate a prototype. Each prototype gives a visual and tangible representation of the final package and allows us to test for fit and function. This approach allows us to vet concepts quickly and cost effectively.
Rapid Prototype & Tooling
Reducing Development Time and Quickly Adapting to Changing Needs.
Our in-house tool design and engineering capabilities allow is to provide fast turnarounds for our clients, which is particularly helpful for time-sensitive projects. By combining our team’s extensive knowledge and skills with the most advanced computerized controls we create the highest quality customized tooling.
The Best Materials, Machinery and most Efficient Production
For our production molds we only use aluminum to deliver the highest quality thermoformed plastic parts. All of our machinery is electronically controlled to maintain temperature, vacuum pressure and timing for the highest accuracy. Although each project at Premier Plastics requires customized tooling, we help reduce costs by utilizing master mold and master tooling systems.
Tool and Mold storage
Ensuring Optimal Performance in the Future
Proper storage and safe keeping of tools ensure rapid turnaround for future orders. We make sure that after production runs tools are carefully cataloged, stored and maintained. At Premier Plastics we take care of your property as if it’s our own.

We creatively balance the competing needs of marketing. Procurement and sustainability to provide solutions that are both cost effective and user-friendly.
Thermoforming is a very versatile method of packaging many items in many different industries. At Premier Plastics we provide a wide variety of thermoformed packaging solutions, ranging from certified medical grade materials for the medical/dental and nutraceuticals industry, FDA approved materials for the food packaging industries and even anti-static packaging for the computer & electronics industries, as well as materials for retail packaging.
Thermoforming is a technique by which a ridged sheet is heated and stretched over a custom designed mold that mimics the shape of your product. When the plastic sheet cools down, it retains the shape of the mold, ensuring a tight and customized fit. The plastic is then trimmed and assembled with your product inside to create a finished product.
The Best Design is only as good as its Production Execution
At Premier Plastics we know that in order to produce the highest quality packaging, we must uphold impeccable quality control standards. Our facility is ISO 9001:2015 compliant and we are guided by the principles of good manufacturing practices (GMPs). We are dedicated to delivering only excellence and to meet our customers’ Quality needs. Every step in the production lifecycle is carefully monitored overseen by experienced technicians. We statistically control our processes to ensure quality and manufacturing repeatability. This allows us to always maintain the highest quality standards.
