Innovation and Partnerships Mean Success for CompackUSA

In 2013, Doug Barter, founder and VP of sales of CompackUSA, brought his 20 years of experience in the packaging industry to Portland. Since then he’s been realizing his vision of making a positive difference in his customer’s packaging operations.

Working together to achieve innovation and the very best packaging products and solutions has resulted in expansion across the country. CompackUSA partially attributes their success to partnerships. As a distributor, they rely on a variety of manufacturers to provide the very best products for their customers.

During their growth, they recognized an increasing gap in their logistics. When they had outgrown their small warehouse facility, they decided to seek alternatives to a self-managed warehouse. Spending too much time on warehousing tasks was impacting their selling time.

Having found a solution with American Warehouse, the partnership has allowed them to focus their energy on selling rather than transportation and warehousing. “We have doubled the size of our business,” says Doug, as a result of concentrating on revenue-generating activities. As their business partner, American Warehouse has grown to be quite knowledgeable about CompackUSA’s products, creating trust that their customers have the best experience with their company.

CompackUSA expects to stay the course as they focus on continued growth and expanding into new geographical markets. Working with American Warehouse they move product through the Pacific NW fast with transportation, inventory management and warehousing solutions that give them the peace of mind needed to focus on providing excellent packaging products and services to their customers.
