In 1967, a young entrepreneur name Aliseo “Al” Gentile started a business called Gentile Packaging Machinery. This company specialized in custom packaging machinery for the pharmaceutical, industrial, food and cosmetic industries and would become the father of Genpack USA and eventually Xela Pack, Inc.
In 1987, Al and his wife Cathy started a new company called Genpack USA. This company was created with the purpose of advancing a premium packaging system in the United States. Driven to create excellence in packaging, Al and Genpack USA expanded, developed and perfected this packaging line while establishing it in the United States market.
In 1994, Genpack USA became Xela Pack, Inc. and continued to expand the parameters of this packaging line. Since the birth of Xela Pack, Inc. and the Xela Pack, many breakthroughs have come about. Using new material constructions, new printing technologies and a whole new concept of waste free production, Xela Pack, Inc. began their efforts to make the Xela Pack the premier environmentally friendly sample, trial and retail size package.
Since then, Xela Pack has expanded their technology to accommodate not only liquid filling, but filling of all types of viscous products, liquids with particulate, powders and other granular products, tablets and capsules. Xela Pack, Inc. has also added many features to the Xela Pack line such as a stand-up option, custom shapes and coupon tabs, and continues to develop the line with an increasing respect to the environment.
Xela Pack, Inc. is now a leading force in environmentally friendly packaging, and will continue to expand and lead the market for years to come. Xela Pack, Inc. has succeeded in making the Xela Pack the premier environmentally friendly sample, trial and retail size package.
