The Contract Packaging Association's RFQ allows anyone needing a contract packager the opportunity to request information about a CPA member company’s services, including packaging capabilities and service costs. Submissions will be sent to member companies accepting RFQs. Member companies will examine your needs and will contact you directly about their packaging services and capabilities.
Please keep in mind that leaving any field blank WILL lessen your chance for response. When submitting this RFQ, please provide as much information as you can. The information you provide allows the CPA member companies to determine if they can partner with you to accomplish your goals.
Please follow these suggestions when filling out the fields in the RFQ form.
Fields 1-7: Include your company name, your contact name, your title, year your company was founded and a way to be contacted (email/phone number). Contact information is vital.
Field 8: Type of Product – Please choose the type of product you wish to be handled from the dropdown list.
Field 9: Type of Container – Please choose the type of container you wish to use for your packaging from the dropdown list.
Field 10: Approximate Quantity of Order – While approximate, if you have an idea of volume to be packaged, make sure you include this.
