Creating Crating to Keep Your Products Safe

CratingOne of the most important parts of any product is how that product is packaged. It doesn’t matter what you’ve built if it can’t survive being shipped. Often times, the design and production of a proper shipping crate can become a huge challenge on its own, one that is commonly overlooked. That’s where Gateway Manufacturing can step in. High Production or low volume custom crating is an area in which we excel.  We’re happy to handle orders from 1 crate to 10,000 crates, and anything in between.

We design, engineer and manufacture wooden shipping crates for any product, including products we’ve manufactured, or your own products, raw materials or components. If you already have a crate design, we can build to your specifications. Our experienced engineering and production team can offer suggestions to make your crate design more efficient and more effective.  Gateway can also completely design your crate around your product specifications. Tell us what you’re shipping and how you’re planning to ship it and we’ll design exactly what you need.

All production lines at Gateway are designed and built by our experienced engineering team. Each production run is monitored hourly by Statistical Process Control (SPC). Gateway’s ISO 9001: 2008 Certification assures our customers of the highest quality control and the most exacting standards available. We’re also ISPM-15 Registered for export and overseas crating.

We understand that the logistics of getting your crate order back to your facility can be challenging, which is why we can provide regional “door-to-door” service.  You can rest assured that your crates will arrive to you on time.

With our high volume customers, Gateway can utilize a KanBan scheduling system which will help to determine what to produce, production timing, and production quantity, thereby saving our customers time and money.

Whether you are shipping heavy parts or fragile components, Gateway will ensure that your product gets to your destination in perfect condition, every time. Our goal is “To delight our customers with quality, delivery, and price performance.”

Beyond custom crating, we also offer kitting, assembly services, sub-assembly, contract packaging, electro-mechanical assembly, pick pack merge, and fulfillment services. We’re here in whatever capacity you need us—we can be one step in your manufacturing process, or your complete design, prototyping, production and packaging partner.  We are your Solutions Company!
