Our Story: A Journey of Transformation and Ingenuity
In 2013, CMI, then a printing company, was approached by the president of PDQ restaurants with a unique packaging dilemma: they needed custom-sized boxes for their chicken tenders, a need unmet by his food service provider and impractical for manufacturers due to high minimum orders. Seizing this opportunity, CMI stepped in to bridge the gap, offering tailored manufacturing, warehousing, distribution, and supply chain insights. This pivotal moment marked CMI's transformation from a printing specialist to a full-service packaging provider.
Today, CMI stands as a leader in packaging solutions, catering to national brands like Chili's, Tropical Smoothie, and Chipotle. Our journey from a simple printing company to a multifaceted packaging expert reflects our commitment to innovative, customized solutions for our clients.

Established in 1998, CMI initially emerged as a vanguard in the print industry, mastering the art of printing catalogs, inserts, and direct mail for over ten years. As time unfolded, our expertise evolved, with our focus shifting predominantly to packaging. The transition was seamless, akin to our earlier proficiency in crafting catalog covers, but this time on folding box board. Embracing sustainability, we soon expanded into creating recyclable and compostable products, utilizing a diverse range of materials such as plastic, sugarcane, metal, and foam. This journey mirrors our commitment to innovation and environmental stewardship, positioning CMI at the forefront of sustainable packaging solutions for a greener future.
