Pantero Acquires Inspired Packaging Solutions In MI


Troy, Michigan based Pantero has announced the acquisi- tion of Inspired Packaging Solutions, a Detroit-area pack- aging and equipment supplier. The acquisition will allow Pantero to expand its packaging automation and material handling solutions for its warehouse and distribution cus- tomers. Over the past 20 years, Inspired Packaging Solutions has made a name for itself in southeastern Michigan and beyond for high-quality packaging and material handling solutions, including automated carton packing and stretch wrap machines, conveyor systems and material handling equipment, and warehouse shelving, flow racks and safety gates. In addition to providing pre-engineered equipment, they can custom design and install complex automation systems for packaging facilities and warehouses. They also offer custom fabrication and warehouse layout design services. “Inspired Packaging Solutions has a wealth of experi- ence in packaging and material handling automation and equipment, bringing Pantero a whole new set of capabili- ties that we can now offer to our customers,” said Andrew Reid, Pantero Director of Operations. “At the same time, we can offer their clients a larger range of packaging ma- terials and supplies. We are excited to bring our teams to- gether to better serve our customers.” Joe Santana, the founder of Inspired Packaging Solu- tions, brings 30+ years of experience in the packaging equipment and material handling business. He will remain with the combined company as the acting manager of Pantero’s packaging and material handling equipment di- vision. “I’m looking forward to joining the Pantero team,” Santana said. “I believe our shared philosophies of pro- viding outstanding customer service and bringing excep- tional value to our customers align well between our two companies.” Pantero and Inspired Packaging Solutions are both lo- cated in the Detroit area and both focused on meeting the needs of the warehouse, logistics, packaging and distri- bution industry. Pantero currently offers a wide range of packaging, warehouse and janitorial supplies and equip- ment. Their comprehensive catalog, commitment to cus- tomer service, and same-day/next-day delivery service have earned a strong following in the southeastern Mich- igan area. The acquisition will allow Pantero to offer one- stop service for warehouse supplies, equipment, custom automation solutions and design services. “I believe that together the products and services we offer can bring great value to our mutual customers,” add- ed Santana. “The Inspired team looks forward to continu- ing to meet or exceed our customer’s expectations as part of the Pantero family. Together, we can help our customers make their operations more efficient, cost-effective and fu- ture-ready.”
