    Our Story

    Essential opened in 2001 as a sister company to our California operation Premier Packaging.  Essential was created as a “4PL” in conjunction with a large logistics company. They needed a co-packer who could allow them to focus solely on their specialties of warehousing and distribution. It has been a wonderful relationship which continues to flourish. Essential has fostered new relationships in Arizona and continues to grow its customer base with superb service and competitive pricing.
