THE TOPAX STORY

When Jo-Lynn and Simon started out in the early 1980’s, our mission was to help our customers by protecting their products and possessions. People were shipping their cargo all over the world and we were making sure through project management and proper logistics, that product arrived safely.

We set out to build a team, provide friendly, professional service and protective packaging second to none. The internet hadn’t been invented and we talked with our customers exclusively on the phone. It was fun working with people to build trusting relationships.

Over the years, we’ve seen many changes in communications technology, the economy and our industries. With more than 30 years of experience in protective packaging, our people have honed their design skills and increased our range of innovative solutions. We’ve evolved from our origins as the export packer and developed a much wider range of products to help you. Whether it’s packaging for transportation or storage, arranging logistics, preserving equipment in the field or ensuring operational readiness, our project management team gets the job done. We still believe in solid, friendly relationships and straightforward dealing. Our word is good whether it’s on the phone or in writing.
