SCHUYLKILL HAVEN, Pa. – It’s onerous to consider the place you may’t discover a product made by M&Q Packaging.
“M&Q specializes in processing engineered plastics into various packaging materials such as cooking bags, sterilization packaging, materials for aerospace, airplanes, rocket engines, we also are involved in the packaging for chemicals and other types of sophisticated materials,” stated Michael Schmal, President of M&Q Packaging.
The Schuylkill County firm was based in 1955 in Freehold, New Jersey. It’s been in Pennsylvania since 1978.
“If you go to a Subway store and buy a meatball marinara sauce, they line their marinara pans with our liners, we also do work for McCormick spice down in Baltimore,” Schmal stated.
“We process films for companies like Boeing and Airbus.”
And a lot, rather more.
The plastic movie is produced 24/7 by a crew of about 150 folks.
“We have a lot of long-term employees that worked here a long time, have seen all the products develop and come through the market,” Schmal stated.
And they’re growing much more. But for now, their focus is on assembly surging demand.
“We’re looking to work down our tremendous backlog of orders. We have so many orders we can’t get them all processed,” Schmal stated.
