Packaging System Innovation
We are a new kind of manufacturer, revolutionizing the packaging industry with innovative and exceptionally engineered packaging divider systems for a wide range of markets. We value long-term partnerships with customers and want to lead the way in environmental responsibility.
Based in Holland, Michigan, our team has decades of experience in manufacturing and distribution management. Early on we recognized the potential for packaging system innovation, and have developed advanced technologies and divider products powerful enough to revolutionize the industry. We keep it simple: innovative design, cost-effective manufacturing, superior customer service, world-class processes, and total quality management.
“Excellent part protection, lower cost, lower lead times, innovation, quality, and personal attention provided by ITB makes my job easier.”
“I was a skeptic at first but the product intrigued me. What a great way to save space,time, and money! Give them a try and do some experimenting, you will be happy with the results.”
“In my many years working with ITB I appreciate their ability to come up with innovative high-density designs and quick turn around.”
“The ITB team is always improving the packaging designs and finding existing packs to change. They even benchmark outside the normal Automotive and Packaging Industries to find improvements. For example, changing the way they cut the paper to a newspaper style cut to prevent a sharp edge.”
Our highly-engineered packaging solutions have been created to deliver benefits that save space, production and assembly time, and money – value that is simply not possible with other systems.
We can help you save time by using products that are significantly more ergonomic and flexible, and on average, 50% lighter than competitors, making them quicker, easier and safer for operators to insert into containers. We also do not require time-consuming die-cut processes. As a result, we can deliver fast turnarounds and substantial savings, including returnable products that are priced up to 60% lower than sewn and as much as 20% lower than comparable fabric covered PCORR.
You will be able to increase plant storage space from 25-75% with our boxes and containers because they are collapsible, and turn your warehouse back into manufacturing space! And when shipping, our customized cells nest products closer and use the entire container interior, which can raise packing densities by 15-100%. For return shipping, flattened Returnable bins boost cargo space nearly three-fold, which means fewer trucks on the road and reduced transportation costs.
Simply put, ITB delivers higher quality products with no tooling, less material, more productive processes and faster deliveries, all of which yield numerous and substantial direct and indirect cost saving benefits.
Simplicity is key: Our systems and products are engineered so that they are easy to understand and intuitive to use. We value simplicity because it yields better efficiency, productivity and savings for customers — while making our lives easier.
Tooling and ease of installation: Unlike traditional packaging, we make rectangular divider systems that require no tooling and can be easily managed throughout the supply chain. Systems fold flat for storage or shipping and expand quickly for effortless setup in the container.
Less material – lighter weight – lower costs – greener: Our revolutionary processes use less raw material to perform the same function as other packaging manufacturers’ products. This leads to lower prices for customers and greener operations — less material reduces manufacturing costs and creates a smaller footprint, while lighter weight, compact products reduce transportation expenses.
Quality with better protection: ITB’s high quality soft, flexible materials custom-fit products for better protection compared to typical hard-wall options, and we seal the cells from top to bottom providing strength, durability, and superior part separation.

Awards + Recognition
ITB was recognized for excellent customer service by YFAI. Customer needs are important to us and it is an honor to know that we are responding to these needs in a manner that is acknowledged by customers.
Receiving this award validated what we wanted to accomplish for our community when we started our company – to give back to the community, and this award affirms that we “make an outstanding impact on Michigan’s economy”.
ITB was honored by DuPont for excellence in innovation and cost reduction for our easy to assemble and use dividers. This award from DuPont affirmed our message – “where the innovation is in-the-box”.
Quality and testing
ITB is committed to making quality products and we use a variety of tests for our dividers and the materials that compose them.
From testing glue temperatures and bead widths to performing pull (strength) tests on our materials and installing an on-site Shaker Table, we are committed to being the best in the world at manufacturing rectangular cell dividers and we continually work to achieve that goal.
Our Shaker Table allows us to ensure quality by offering side-by-side shake tests of your current dividers compared to ITB dividers, loaded with your parts. Contact us if you would like to utilize this option for your dividers.
