Free Flow Packaging Corporation was founded in 1967 by Arthur Graham to produce and sell the paper straw ends, known as Flo Pak free flowing cushioning material. Arthur Graham pioneered the free-flowing interior packaging material industry. In the last decade, the company expanded its product lines, adopted the trade name FP International and changed its legal name to free flow Packaging International, Inc. The company has received national recognition for its unique polystyrene recycling program, including awards from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the National Recycling Coalition as well as numerous state and local environmental organizations.
The company has developed a unique, new extrusion process to produce its free flowing cushioning material from expanded polystyrene. The hollow polystyrene tube was crimped in the center to make a figure-eight-shape. This distinctive figure eight shape identified flo pak loosefill and created greater product protection by interlocking with other eight-shapes in a carton during shipment.
FP International manufactures innovative protective packaging products and packaging systems. Products include packaging-made-on-site, bubble, air cushions, Kraft paper cushioning and ready-to-use products, polyethylene foam, loosefill made of 100 percent recycled polystyrene or cornstarch and Kraft or bubble mailers. The company also designs and installs custom dispensing and storage systems for air cushions and loosefill. FP International is a privately held company with 550 employees worldwide and over $100 million in annual sales last year.
FP International offers free Technical Support for distributors and customers. The Field Service Division has a trained staff of service technicians, operates a toll-free technical support line, handles spare part ordering and distribution and runs training schools at three FPI locations.
The company has received national recognition for its unique polystyrene recycling program, including awards from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the National Recycling Coalition as well as numerous state and local environmental organizations.
