Learn More About PDG
While we serve a wide range of industries, we are well known and respected for our expertise in pharmaceutical, OTC, nutraceutical (vitamin), personal care and food and beverage packaging.
What We Do
PDG offers comprehensive packaging distribution services – from design and product sourcing to component manufacturing and warehousing. We can take your ideas and find the most efficient ways to make them happen. Or, we can offer innovative solutions for custom packaging. Because of our long-standing relationships with partners throughout the packaging industry, we are able to consistently deliver the results you desire – on time and within budget.
All of our client relationships are built from a simple approach: What are your goals and how can we find the most cost-effective ways to achieve them? We can guide you through every step of the process, or we can offer our expertise in select areas such as securing a hard-to-find component. We understand which areas require more aggressive negotiating on your behalf and tackle each one accordingly.
Why We’re Different
Unlike many packaging distribution companies, The Packaging Design Group knows manufacturing. PDG was founded in 1995 by Kenneth Gillman and Peter Kallman, who have more than 60 years of combined experience in the field. Prior to forming PDG, Ken and Peter manufactured plastic closure systems, dispensing plugs, fitments, jars and custom-molded parts. As a result, they know the ins and outs of component design, component costing, quality control systems, engineering, mold design and mold purchasing.
As the company grew, Ken and Peter looked to bring on people who shared their enthusiasm about creative packaging and their dedication to customer service. Today, the PDG team includes a mix of seasoned veterans with a wealth of knowledge in packaging development. Together, we strive every day to set new standards of excellence not only for our company but also for our industry.
