FP Industries Announces  Product Discontinuation

Since their introduction of Loosefill products over forty five years ago, FP International has been a market leader developing 

environmentally friendly and innovative products.


On December 31, FP's Newark, Delaware plant will cease producing loosefill, and for all of us at One Pack, we're bummed!
It is our opinion that FP made one of the finest loosefill products available and we are sorry to see them go


Everyone hates foam chips! 


The manufacturer hates them because they are no longer profitable.  


The truck driver hates them because shipping air is not profitable.  


The distributor hates them because they take up so much space for such little profit.


And, finally, the end user hates them because because they are annoying to clean up and dispose of.


But the truth is the foam chip is still very cost conscience and does an incredible job protecting whatever is being shipped.


So, what's next?  Other types of foam chips, of course. Actually, the next generation of chip isn't made of foam but of a by-product of wheat.


Once our Super 8's have been exhausted from inventory, we will start distributing Pak Natural, a fairly new product manufactured by Sealed Air.

 Pak Natural is an all natural product that is 100% biodegradable and recyclable. We think you'll like it.  Yes, Pak Natural will cost a bit more but now that FP is out of the picture, all competing foam chips will cost more money.


Feel free to give us a call with any questions or click on the link below to see more about Pak Natural.
