How Promega’s Packaging Solution Helped Their Custom Order Department Be More Efficient

Promega, a manufacturer of enzymes and other products for biotechnology and molecular biology, has worked with Great Northern for 20+ years. Great Northern produces secondary and tertiary packaging components for Promega including kit boxes, inserts, and shipping cartons. Recently, Promega was in need of a new packaging solution that would allow their custom order department to efficiently kit a wide range of customer-specified product configurations. They asked Great Northern to solve this issue because of our long-standing business relationship and the trust we’ve built over the years.

The Solution


Custom Print

Wide variety of print solutions including digital and litho



The new solution maximized efficiency for their kitting process



Corrugated and laminated materials were used



A matte finish was applied to the packages


The Bottom Line

The project required a mix of corrugated and laminated materials but needed to have the same appearance on both. We began by matching the desired colors on the digital press as close as possible. Then we partnered with a local company to match the digital colors and matte finish. The solution was a series of kit boxes designed specifically around Promega’s most common bottle sizes and kit quantities. The new solution maximized efficiency in their kitting process. When Promega’s Packaging Development Supervisor, Ben Peters, was asked about the project, he said “The end result was an elegant and effective packaging solution that is a great example of what’s possible when the packaging teams at Great Northern and Promega collaborate.”
