When I first started looking into getting help with our packaging I had no clue what a packaging Engineer was. Now I do. They were very professional and informative. The knowledge Aaaron had in packaging was incredible. The entire process was very interesting. It has benefited our company completely!

Recently worked with John Boldt at BoldtSmith on a design project. Couldn’t be more satisfied with the process and results! I will definitely recommend BoldtSmith and will not hesitate to work with them in the future.

Mike Scheel
Sr. Category Manager, Packaging, Mercury Marine

Our goal was to get from failing ISTA 3 to passing ISTA 6A. The proposed package does that and is more compact. What was to be only a packaging improvement has become a huge DTV for us due to the 25% more per pallet. Some of the M-Can production is moving to our Mexico facility. The shipping savings will be in the 100’s of thousands.

Working with BoldtSmith has been a real pleasure. Their knowledge and expertise are second to none. They brought our ideas to life and found solutions for our costly and inefficient process. John’s expertise in corrugated displays was critical in the design phase. He guided us to optimal savings and reduced our individual component inventory while keeping structural integrity top of mind. Extremely helpful and always hands-on from conception through to delivery. We will continue to trust in them for future projects.

Dustin is a knowledgeable, innovative, self-starter with a positive professional attitude. His ideas/design contributions and ability to work with our suppliers and top customers was a true testament to his wide-ranging skillset. He  implemented cost-effective packaging, listened to all requests for changes, and was able to communicate every step of the process; this encompasses his true character and interpersonal skills. I highly recommend his services for any packaging-related project and will continue to work with him.

BoldtSmith Packaging was a pleasure to work with. We needed a packaging consultant for a project on short notice, and they were able to deliver. The team was clear about their capabilities and how we’d integrate with our internal teams and manufacturers. We’d appreciated their timely status updates and open communication.
