About the Company

Leading manufacturer of plastic packaging adopted a complete warehouse management solution to ensure real-time accuracy in inventory status updates.

This east coast manufacturer of plastic packaging serves the needs of healthcare customers world-wide by providing innovative packaging solutions and superior quality products and service. Peak Technologies implemented a complete end-to-end warehouse management solution including wireless site surveys, a new wireless infrastructure, mobile computers, thermal printers, printing supplies and onsite repair services that now enable the customer to accurately track inventory creation, movement, storage and shipping in real-time.

Business Challenge

A leading manufacturer of plastic packaging solutions for healthcare customers needed a real-time warehouse and inventory solution to prevent lag time and typographical errors.

The customer needed to implement a warehouse management/inventory control system that supported mobile devices to capture user transactions and an automated receiving process.

The Solution

Peak Technologies collaborated with partner Kare Technologies to provide a real-time warehouse management solution that could be customized to accommodate integration to automated shrink wrap and conveyor systems and their proprietary AS/400 system.

Kare’s Visual Warehouse provided user-configurable options to meet many of the customer’s requirements out of the box. Kare augmented this functionality by introducing custom add-ons to allow for automated receiving and labeling of pallets as they are shrink-wrapped.

Peak-Ryzex is now
Peak Technologies

The last few months have been incredibly exciting for our organization.  In early April, we changed ownership to Sole Source Capital, an experienced private equity company focused on the industrial services market and committed to our growth. With Sole Source’s support, we have added tremendous capabilities, resources, and industry expertise to the Peak portfolio through the acquisition of three companies in the last 60 days. 

Along with these exciting developments comes a renewed sense of commitment and purpose. To celebrate this exciting new chapter, we wanted to use this opportunity to reflect on our past, while looking forward to the future.  We are extremely pleased to announce that we have changed our company name to Peak Technologies, Inc. 

For many of our long-time customers, this is a return to the company name that had been in place since our founding in 1981.  When we merged with Ryzex in 2011, we combined our names to symbolize the union of two industry leaders.  But over the last few years, we have become ONE Peak, added additional capabilities, battled through a pandemic together, and feel that the time is now to re-brand the company as we look forward to the future.
