You won’t meet nicer, more engaging people than Rick Shave and Bob Vande Weghe, nor any to match their capability in the contract packaging industry.

And now, we’re even more capable.

Versatile has joined a family of contract packaging companies. For years, customers have relied upon us to be agile and versatile as their preferred contract packaging partner. Our commitment hasn’t changed, but our scope has. Now that we’ve joined the South Atlantic and ProStar family of contract packaging companies, we’ll have a solid foundation for expanding our capabilities to better support our strategic-level customers, nationwide.

Rick Shave, Executive Director and Bob Vande Weghe, Executive Director
The smiles are genuine and so is the attitude: They’re “can-do” guys.

In contract packaging, every day is different. Every job is unique. And that’s why we believe customization is key. We’ll use our experience and know-how to create a plan that will match and exceed safety standards, meet deadlines and save money. It’s our job to understand your job. We can scale up our workforce in a day’s notice, so when our clients call to say they need 5,000 kits created by Monday, our answer is, “Let’s get started.”

Manufacturing problems are no problem here. If you’re looking for a contract packaging company that can handle requests from a simple wrap to a sophisticated supply chain project using cutting edge tracking software, we’d love to talk to you. Do you have a project that needs expert care? Contact us today at bob@packvp.com or rick@packvp.com.
