Custom Molded Pulp

At AFP, Inc., we provide specially engineered cushion package solutions to ensure the protection of the most fragile products. This includes our environmentally friendly and sustainable molded pulp, a highly versatile and cost efficient source of packaging. Our custom molded pulp services cover everything from initial concept and design to manufacturing and warehousing, with a full array of secondary services that make us a one-stop shop for customers with the most demanding packaging needs.

Molded pulp is an ideal packaging material for many different applications. It is highly versatile, and can be made from a large assortment of different recycled and renewable materials, including paperboard and newsprint. This substance nests well, and can be recycled curbside. Pulp packaging can be custom fabricated with a broad array of looks and finishes depending on our customers’ design and packaging requirements. Our staff of expert personnel can create many different packaging products incorporating this material, including corrugated designs for outer box applications and more.
