Packaging Appreciation

disc_2While reading a local Orange County magazine, I came across an article that featured one of our customers. I was pleased to see that they attributed part of their success to their great packaging. (By the way was produced in great part by Thoro Packaging.)

4th of July

The late, great Erma Bombeck once said…

“You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.” –Erma Bombeck

In observance of the 4th of July holiday, Thoro Packaging will be closed on Wednesday, July 4th and Thursday, July 5th.

To all of our friends, customers and suppliers; Happy Independence Day!

Great Reviews

Thoro helped our customer transform two of their lines to be re-launched. We assisted them by performing press tests with different coating options so they could find “the right look.”

Both lines were launched recently to great reviews and as a result, Thoro received the “2012 Partner of the Year” award. As an added bonus, one of their customers said “you guys ALWAYS impress and you continue to raise the bar for all of the competition.

If you are ready to re-launch or have a new launch, let Thoro help you achieve the right look.

What a Great Night and A Great Honor!

pnt_excellence_2012I was so thrilled to attend the 2012 PIASC Print Excellence Awards Night last week; and making the evening with my fellow PIASC members even better, was the recognition they gave Thoro. Every year Thoro is grateful and honored to receive PIASC awards for some of our best promotional and customer cartons. This year, Thoro received thePeople’s Choice Award for our 2011 Christmas promotional and for me, you can’t receive higher praise than being recognized for excellence by your own peers in the industry. I would personally like to thank all of the PIASC members for this honor and recognize everyone in our industry and market for the wonderful work we all continue to produce and new innovations in printing technology that we all contribute.

Showing Students the World of Manufacturing

One thing we never grow tired of at Thoro is plant tours for students. Today we did a tour for 30 8th graders from our local Corona-Norco Unified School District. It’s great to see their faces light up when they see all of the large equipment and learn what all is involved with manufacturing the cartons their favorite products are packaged in.
