Sixto Packaging Named to INC’s 2015 “Fastest Growing” List
Sixto Packaging has been recognized as one of the 2015 INC 5,000 Fastest Growing Companies in America. The family-owned flexible packaging manufacturer has been in business for over 45 years in South Florida.
Manufacturing flexible packaging for renowned brands such as Badia Spices, Goya, Café Bustelo and others, Sixto Packaging ranks among the fastest growing 100 privately held companies in Florida, and among the 25 fastest growing flexible packaging companies.
Adding and expanding in-house capabilities such as Inno-Lok zipper conversion and custom laser perfing to its arsenal of products offered, Sixto Packaging has used the service-based approach of short-run lengths and short lead time, coupled with vertical integration of quality and consistent converting to overcome challenges. The company specializes in medium runs and maintains inventory for a number of customers.
“In today’s market situation, with mergers and acquisitions gobbling up small and mid-size convertors, we strive to set are selves apart.” says Felipe E. Sixto, director of sales, Sixto Packaging. “We believe that our ‘old-fashioned’ family/service oriented approach to running our business allows us to cut the red tape and respond to customers quickly.”
Adds Sixto Packaging president Carmen Sixto: “We believe in being more than a converter. We strive to make sure our clients succeed and in turn establish lasting client-supplier relationships spanning decades. My husband and I founded our company more than 45 years ago with one mission, to treat every client like family and have real customer intimacy. My sons and grandsons will continue growing the business while keeping our traditional style approach alive and well.”
“We believe there is a great opportunity for continued growth in flexible packaging, particularly in the products and markets we have expertise in,” says Felipe E. Sixto. “We will continue investing in new technologies and continue my grandfather’s mission of working hard, maintaining high standards of quality and simply treating every client like family.”
