LPS Industries could have easily decided long ago to offshore some of our production, but we chose not to do so because we feel strongly that there is too much at stake. In addition to providing meaningful employment for our family of long-term, loyal employees and the security that employment provides for their families, the impact and benefits of American-based manufacturing are woven throughout the fabric of our society. Benefits of U.S.-based manufacturing include:
- Wage laws, child labor laws and worker safety regulations are observed in contrast with countries who exploit workers to help support lower prices
- Product safety standards are upheld so risks such as exposure to unidentified lead content are avoided
- US manufacturing processes are better for the environment
- Creating jobs for Americans means more income flowing through local economies and more tax revenue to support our infrastructure

LPS Industries LLC, Moonachie, NJ, an ISO certified leading manufacturer of flexible packaging, announced that it has been selected as one of four honorees to receive the 2017 ACG Corporate Growth Award. The award is given annually to premier middle market companies in NJ that exemplify innovation, excellence and corporate growth. The award will be presented to Madeleine Robinson, CEO, at ACG’s 2017 Annual Corporate Growth Conference on May 4.

ACG serves 90,000 owners, executives, investors, lenders and advisers to growing middle-market companies.
Selecting which organization to support is always a difficult one – there are so many great causes from which to choose. LPS focused this year’s effort on helping our four legged friends. Employees participated in a holiday drive for our furry little critters in need! We had a great response of donations that included toys, food and snacks!!
With so many programs doing so much good work in the areas of rescue, care, fostering and adoption, the choice was extremely difficult. However, as a New Jersey based company, we decided to look in our own back yard and selected the Associated Humane Societies of New Jersey. Founded in 1977, the AHS is a non-profit, “no-kill” rescue and shelter system with three locations and a sanctuary for abandoned, injured, ill, exploited, abused or elderly wildlife, exotic and farm animals, and birds. They take in approximately 15,000 animals annually and are totally focused on finding the right “forever home” and creating the chance for a better life for each and every one.
If you would like to learn more about the good work the AHS is doing, you can visit their website at www.ahscares.org.
We look forward to contributing to more charitable causes throughout the year.

(Moonachie, NJ – February 2016) LPS Industries, a leading producer of flexible packaging solutions, recently announced that its Vapor Flex Division is playing a key role as the manufacturer for a distributor that was recently awarded a two-year General Services Administration (GSA) contract. The winning bidder was designated as the sole supplier of MIL PRF 131 to the military on a global basis and LPS is supporting the winning bidder as the manufacturer of the material.
MIL PRF 131 is a high barrier water-vapor-proof and grease-proof flexible material used throughout the military. LPS Industries is one of a select few companies in the world that have the expertise, capabilities and is certified by the military to produce it. Madeleine Robinson, CEO of LPS, commented “I am very pleased that we were able to successfully partner with and support one of our key distributors for this contract. Our long history demonstrating that we can manufacture to the precise specifications and high quality standards required by the military were no doubt important factors that resulted in our mutual success.”
