FormPak was incorporated in 1968 by several engineers from the Monsanto Corporation of St. Louis. The initial charter was designed to serve Monsanto and other regional chemical manufacturers with outsourced equipment, formulations (Form), and packaging (Pak), thus the name FormPak. Within the first few years of operation we quickly evolved into one of the strongest Manufacturers’ Rep firms in the Midwest and developed the current specialization in dry material handling and packaging systems. To this day that foundation forms the cornerstone of our business. In 1998 FormPak leveraged our 22 years of experience in bulk bag handling, filling, and discharging and began designing and selling this type of equipment regionally. This included a relocation from the Kirkwood, MO office to a warehouse/shop and office complex in North St. Louis County. Starting with simple bulk bag filling and discharging equipment the line quickly blossomed into fully integrated Super Sack® handling systems.
FormPak is Your Preferred Bulk Bag Equipment Supplier
By differentiating our products and services (primarily through lower cost, greater customization, and faster delivery) we soon became known in the industry as the preferred supplier for bulk bag handling systems.
Over the next few years the success of that venture saw us rolling a national sales program, securing partnerships with several bulk bag suppliers, and adding several new pieces of equipment to our line.
FormPak currently has over 25 full time employees (including a Professional Engineer) and several part time contractors. Our staff has over 50 years combined experience in the dry materials field.
