Our founder, Tony King, has spent his entire career in the converting and packaging industry. His 15 years of experience was spent across the industry in manufacturing, marketing; running a $400 million sales team; and P&L responsibility for the North American division of a large player in the industry. He used that success and his connections to develop a network of suppliers that he can share with the packaging users.
He founded Merkatta after talking to packaging users that were frustrated with large inventories, long term commitments to get favored pricing, large minimum run sizes, lead times in months or years vs days, or simply being ignored by their supplier. As a veteran of the industry that lived in the world of manufacturing, marketing, and selling packaging… he gets it.
“Little quote here from Tony directly, not sure what about but maybe 15 to 50
words or so in order to fill this little space well enough to look decent :)”
