The Company International Foam Packaging, LLC. (the "Company"), a Virginia corporation, is a privately owned corporation with both its corporate office and manufacturing facility located in Richmond, Virginia. The Company manufactures a shipping package that is unique in the small package industry.
The Xpander Pak® product, with its patented construction and foam cushioning, provides much greater protection against the shock and vibration encountered in shipping than ordinary shipping materials including bubble or padded envelopes.
Xpander Pak® products protect fragile contents with thick, flexible polyurethane foam; yet, they are light in weight and reduce shipping costs significantly.
For this reason, the product is widely used by an enormous variety of businesses for shipping delicate items, including: cameras, jewelry, video tapes, watches, eyewear, art work, small antiques, spare parts, mementos, crystal, computers, chocolate, electronic components, cell phones, prescriptions and medical devices. You can even ship a raw egg! Before Xpander Pak® These items would have been sent in a corrugated box with inferior wrap, fill, or dunnage. Compared with a corrugated box, the Xpander Pak® products: are cost effective to ship; require less time to pack; need less storage spaces; weigh one-third less than conventional products; offer better protection.
