John Schweitzer rang in the new year right when he founded Alta-Pak Midwest, Inc. on January 1, 1982. With hard work, dedication, and some elbow grease, John and plant manager Keith Snapp established our commitments to quality packaging materials and top-notch customer service early on.
Alta-Pak manufactures and distributes the Alta-“W,” a flowable loose fill more commonly referred to as packing peanuts, as well as a wide variety of other wholesale packing materials. We supply everything from the outside to the inside of a package — from stock and misprinted shipping boxes to tape and strapping materials to bubble wrap, paper products, and much more.
We believe we succeed only when you do too and are laser focused on exceeding our customers’ expectations. We make every customer a priority — no matter how large or small — providing friendly service and fair pricing you can look forward to each and every time. Our privately owned fleet of trucks also ensures on-time delivery, whether you’re within the greater Kansas City metropolitan area or the larger Midwest region.
Alta-Pak has proudly been woman-owned since 2006 when John’s daughter Cyndi Griffith purchased the business. The family legacy continues with her, along with our customer-centric foundational values. Under her leadership, we remain grounded in our beginnings while looking ahead to meet new and evolving customer needs.
