Creative Techniques Celebrates 20 Years in Business

In 2004, Creative Techniques Inc. officially celebrates 20 years in the business of supplying custom returnable-packaging applications across a wide range of industries. Industries the company has served include automotive, tire and rubber, consumer packaged goods, food and pharmaceutical. Creative’s product line covers returnable shipping containers, parts kitting trays, custom pallets, Duraspool thermoplastic spools and reels, structural foam dunnage, wash baskets, retort and sterilization racks, and many others.

A full-service company, Creative Techniques offers in-house design, engineering, toolmaking, production and assembly capabilities to meet customer needs. Creative Techniques has the experience to improve customer production processes by designing and producing returnable packaging that meets cross-functional applications, improves production logistics, orients parts to take advantage of automated systems, and lasts for years.

“Creative Techniques has successfully tackled hundreds of material handling challenges across a diverse range of industries,” says Richard J. Parker, vice president and director of business development. “From the straightforward to the most complex and demanding, we can provide successful returnable-packaging solutions that are cost-effective and time-tested.”

The company also recently achieved ISO 9001:2000 certification for the design and production processes at its Auburn Hills and Orion Township, MI, manufacturing operations. This certification, thoroughly evaluated and assessed by third-party auditors, means Creative Technique’s Quality Management System meets rigorous international standards.

ISO 9001:2000 registration applies to all aspects of Creative’s quality management system, including planning, product design, process monitoring, and customer satisfaction. It certifies that the quality management system is fully integrated within the company, and ensures Creative Techniques can measure, monitor, and control all quality-related issues as a matter of daily practice.

“We have always believed that we put the customer first in our continuous improvement efforts,” Parker continues. “ISO 9001:2000 certification takes that commitment and resolve to new and higher levels. We believe our dedication to the principles and methodology within ISO 9001:2000 will deliver increasing benefits to our customers, our business partners, and the underlying strengths of Creative Techniques.”
