It teaches self-discipline, 
self-restraint, generosity, and understanding of those less fortunate.

Skids Stay Put!

Product bouncing off their skids, during shipment, is something that almost every company has to be concerned about.  slippery skid


For most, a few extra wraps of stretch film seem to quell the dilemma, but the problem isn't always solved with this solution.


While researching this challenge for one of our customers, we stumbled across an anti-slip paper that not only does a great job replacing a corrugated pad, but it can save you money, too.


Anti Slip SkidUtilizing our new anti slip paper requires less film to lock the load onto the skid and that also means it takes less time to wrap.


The best part is that the anti-slip sheet may likely be cheaper than a corrugated sheet.

Fred Saying goodbye to the 2012 Graduating Class of Carteret High School
Fred Gerstler is not only the Owner of One Pack, LLC but also a school board member in his community.
After twelve years of volunteering and serving the people of Carteret, he has decided not to seek re-election this November. 
In his address to the graduating class of 2012, Fred spoke to the students before him about giving back to community and to not allow selfishness to guide their decisions and future .
The one thing that Fred learned about giving speeches is that no one listens, so he decided to try something else to get his audience's attention.

Sometimes You Need To Laugh

Normally we would feature comedy in this column but decided that Fred singing (see Employee News) was enough to put a smile on anyone's face.




On July 12, 2011, House Republicans failed to stop the enactment of new energy saving standards for lightbulbs.

This bill means that the good old incandescent bulb will be pushed off the shelf for more efficient fluorescent bulbs.


For some this is very troubling.  Government will, once again, take away another freedom of choice and demand that we now

No Bulb for You
No Bulb For You
utilize a product that can have toxic results when disposed of or if broken.  Also, the incandescent bulb is produced in the USA whereas florescent bulbs are being made offshore.


For others, the energy savings produced by this newer technology will help benefit the earth by reducing green house exposure and lessen electricity costs.


Ironically, as we debate the pros and cons of the fluorescent bulb an even better, more environmentally friendly product is picking up steam and will be the prominent lighting of the future. This new product is the Light Emitting Diodes (LED).


LED Bulb
LED Florescent Replacement
LED's are seen on expensive automobiles, those neat flashlights on the counter of your Quickie Mart, and soon in your reading lamp in the living room. 
Like all new technologies, prices for these bulbs are high and the payback will take years.  But, like the flat screen in your family room, the prices will drop and the quality will improve.  Once that happens, those funny looking, Mercury filled bulbs will be a thing of the past like a VCR.
