APC Packaging, a WBENC certified beauty packaging solutions provider celebrates their 15 year anniversary on March 28 this year
In 2006, Lisa Lin saw there was a gap between what the cosmetics and skin care brands needed in North America and packaging manufacturing in China.
Her first Cosmoprof show in Las Vegas confirmed Lisa’s thoughts so she took her industry connections abroad and in the US, customer service and creative skills, and a passion for the beauty industry to build APC Packaging.
Brands were looking for quicker turn-around times, increased responsiveness from packaging manufacturers, higher quality products as well as guidance through sustainable packaging development and innovative custom mould development.
Lin developed a team of engineers, project managers, key account managers and logistics coordinators in their headquarters in Fort Lauderdale to work directly a team of APC Packaging employees in China. Both APC Packaging teams in China and the US work daily to ensure the quickest turn times without sacrificing quality.
Lin also recognised that the needs of many indie and smaller brands were being ignored and that she could help them grow into national brands. She created an in-stock program and developed a 50,000 square foot warehouse in Fort Lauderdale with 24 hour turn-around times on orders.
As APC Packaging grew and the industry needs changed, APC dedicated resources to develop innovative and sustainable packaging options.
In the last year, the focus on sustainable packaging has grown and APC Packaging has responded by introducing several patented innovations including the Airless Refillable System (ARS) and the Refillable Jar (JRA).
In 2020, APC Packaging was recognised by LuxLife Magazine for their Health & Beauty Wellness Awards as the Most Sustainable Beauty Product Packaging Specialist.
In 2021, APC Packaging has several new sustainable innovations that will be rolling out. The first one is scheduled in April and is a true mono-material product for easy recycling.
CEO, Lisa Lin along with her sister, President, Christina Lin have grown APC Packaging into a multi-million dollar global business with a focus on skin care, innovation and sustainability in the beauty packaging arena for global brands including Estee Lauder, Clinique, Glamglow, Beauty Stat and Dr. Brandt.
