Why Molded Fiber?

Sustainable, Environmentally Responsible Protective Packaging

Made from 100% post-industrial recyclable materials, molded fiber/molded pulp is a cost effective and environmentally friendly packaging solution that reduces packing labor and require less storage space while providing superior protection at every stage of the supply chain.

The inherent flexibility of molded fiber offers substantial cushioning qualities and the "geometry" that we incorporate into each design lends strength to each part.

For over 30 years, MFT-CKF has delivered innovative and environmentally-responsible, protective packaging solutions to the consumer goods, electronics, and industrial products sectors across North America.
