About Us


Com-Pac International is willing to execute mutually agreeable non-disclosure agreements covering customer-unique proprietary products.

Com-Pac International has extensive product development capability, as approximately fifty-percent of product sales is derived from uniquely developed products for specific customer applications. Product development capability extends to design, testing, manufacture and production integration of manufacturing equipment, as well as end-products.

We are able to adjust the configurations of products to comply with your specifications.

Headquarters, manufacturing, testing and shipping are located in Carbondale, Illinois. Various warehousing facilities are available at other nationwide locations.

Com-Pac International has expanded twice in the last four years. The first addition was 10,000 square feet to accommodate additional manufacturing equipment production facilities and for the addition of a six-color, central impression printing press. The second addition was 10,000 square feet to relocate our FDA white room into a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility dedicated exclusively to medical white room products. Future expansion plans call for an adding 10,000 – 15,000 square feet for additional film and reclosable profile extrusion capability to accommodate current growth trends.

Com-Pac International maintains testing data on all products in accordance with customer, FDA and internal policies and procedures. Lot sample testing is conducted in accordance with MIL-STD-105.

As a fully integrated extruder, printer and converter, very few production components are purchased from subcontractors. Certain raw materials such as polymer resin and unique poly films are purchased from outside vendors. Com-Pac International owns all tooling and machinery used in production.

Supplier performance is measured by rating suppliers during periodic site visits by Com-Pac purchasing and Quality Assurance personnel.

Supplier performance is reviewed annually.

A History of Innovation…

It was 1970 when the company that is now Com-Pac International, Inc. received its first patents on the world’s only liquid-tight, yet reclosable bag.

Better solutions to packaging’s most formidable challenges have continued to make Com-Pac a leading innovator in the design, engineering and production of specialty plastic soft goods.

Today, Com-Pac International, Inc. is a fully integrated extruder, printer and converter of custom plastic packaging for a wide variety of medical, food service and industrial applications.

With the experience and resources to meet the most demanding product specifications, here are a few more ways Com-Pac meets the challenge — One customer at a time!

People Make the Difference…

It takes much more than the latest technology and equipment to meet today’s demanding market. It requires the consistent support of trained and knowledgeable people who emphasize quality of both product and service. That is why Com-Pac people are more than employees, they’re partners.

  • Com-Pac employs approximately 200 full and part-time direct production, engineering, management and support personnel.

A Word About Quality…

The indicator of true quality goes beyond the combination of select raw materials, high-tech machinery and skilled, dedicated personnel. It is the group of people teaming their efforts to continuously improve products and processes.

We achieve this by empowering our workforce with the responsibility and authority to seek out and solve problems at every level of operation. We support these efforts with a highly trained Quality Assurance staff and facilities, such as:

  • A state-of-the-art Quality Assurance lab, equipped to test your product’s performance, conduct receiving inspection of raw materials, provide statistical analysis of process variables and conduct intermediate and lot sampling inspection in accordance with MIL-STD-105
  • A configuration control program which documents each product’s dimensions, construction and performance criteria to insure consistent product conformance with established standards, to prevent changes without your authorization and to provide traceability from end-item to raw material.
