A History Of Success

Quality Packaging Specialists International was founded in 1992 by Mike (Kenneth) Ricketts, its current majority-owner and CEO. Mike, a former Division I College Athlete, learned early on in life the value of preparation, discipline and goal-orientation, putting these sports truisms to work for his entrepreneurial passions. Collaborating with a close friend and business partner, Mike opened his first facility in Burlington, NJ with less than 5,000 square feet.

Today, Burlington remains the Corporate Headquarters but has expanded to a site that is more than 75,000 square feet. Overall, QPSI has four Center of Excellence Sites and four in-DC operations. QPSI's first orders were for a major CPG, completing challenging secondary packaging for applications in personal care, feminine care and healthcare. This same customer remains a loyal and valued partner for QPSI and these marketing verticals remain as the mainstays of our business.It’s a testament to the foundation of QPSI and its commitment to stay the course in its key segments with longstanding customer relationships.

QPSI is proudly a Minority-Owned Business Enterprise (MBE) with national accreditation by the NMSDC. To this point, Mike is always eager to mentor and coach other minority business persons towards achieving their goals and aspirations.
