A Look Back and Ahead: What We’re Thankful for This Year

Versa Pak employee looking back at the end of the year and thankful.

As we look ahead to 2022, we’re making a list of what we’re thankful for this year. In 2021, we made it through an ongoing pandemic, supply chain issues and even began an expansion at our Celina, Ohio, headquarters.

Looking Back on 2021

Even after 2020’s record year and continued growth in 2021, Versa Pak is thankful for our customers’ patience and our team’s hard work.

“This year was a record year for supply chain issues and lead time delays, but our team and our distributors were fantastic throughout the whole process,” Versa Pak President Michael Brunswick said.

We were even fortunate to take home a few awards this year: a Gold TUG award and a PDA Supplier of the Year award.

“We were honored to receive multiple awards in 2021,” Sales Manager Jeff Knapke said. “These awards reflect our value to our distributors, which is extremely important to us.”

Versa Pak also continued to make efforts to improve our culture in 2021, focusing on each of our company values — mentoring, teamwork, communication, integrity, and fun-spirited — and improving our processes and work environment along the way, whether that’s through leadership training, employee mentorship, and more.

In the video below, you’ll hear a snippet of what our employees are thankful for this year.

Looking Ahead to 2022

In 2021 we broke ground on our 56,000 square foot expansion and began the construction process. This expansion will be an integral part of 2022, and we’re looking forward to officially opening the new space, which will enable us to meet our customers’ demands faster and expand our operations.

“We sincerely thank you for your support this year, and we look forward to growing with you again in 2022,” said Brunswick. “Thank you for another successful year. We could not do it without you.”
