NEX Packaging has a history of helping companies
with contract packaging
NEX Transport Inc. was established as a joint venture between
a worldwide logistics and freight forwarding company, Nippon
Express and a packaging specialist company, Nittsu Shoji. NEX
Transport Inc. was created with both specialties in mind, providing
the best of both worlds.
In 1989, eighty-two acres were purchased and a 100,000 square
foot building was built to begin this venture. Initially, NEX
Transport Inc. provided warehousing services to automotive customers.
Later that year, NEX was contracted to provide after market packaging
services to an automotive lighting company. This contract grew
very rapidly, providing NEX a good name in the packaging business.
Soon, other suppliers favored NEX with their packaging business.
In 1990, NEX contracted a bulk parts project. This project was
to contain 1,000 different parts from both foreign and domestic
suppliers. These parts were stored and then packed per automotive
manufacture’s production schedule. A second bulk operation
was established in 1997 to serve similar needs.
In 1991, NEX was operating at full capacity. In efforts to expand
our current operations and add new operations, another 100,000
sq. feet was added to the existing building.
In 1993, NEX contracted another type of business. NEX modified
dock doors and installed conveyors on behalf of an automotive
seat manufacturer. This allowed NEX to palletize, store, and
forward the seats on a Just-In-Time delivery schedule to meet
mass production requirements.
In 1996, an Export packaging service was added to our specialties.
Packaged items are loaded on to ocean containers for shipment.
Foreign destinations include Brazil, Canada, Japan, Malaysia,
Mexico, Philippines, Taiwan, and Thailand.
Operating at full capacity once again, NEX built a 200,000 sq.
foot building next to the initial building. This building is
equipped with a 20-ton gantry crane, just another tool in which
NEX could use to serve its growing list of customers.
In 1999, NEX wanted to show their commitment to continuous improvement
and became certified. This continued effort allows
NEX to grow with confidence in their operations and teams.
Over the years NEX has grown significantly. The business was
started with only seven employees and now obtains over 200 employees.
Our pride and focus on quality and excellence have proven to
provide us with the capabilities to better serve our customer’s.
As NEX continues to grow, focus will be given toward continuous
improvement and excellence. We will continue to look for avenues
of expansion, or ways to better serve our customers.
Today NEX is ISO 9001:2000 Certified.
We process over 40,000 parts per day and over 50 trailers.
We look forward to expanding
into your area soon!
