Alpha Packaging

Experts in PET and HDPE packaging for the pharmaceutical, nutritional and personal care markets

Alpha Packaging manufactures high-quality bottles and jars made from polyethylene terephthalate (PET), high-density polyethylene (HDPE), polypropylene (PP) and polylactic acid (PLA) for the pharmaceutical, nutritional, personal care, consumer chemical, and food and beverage markets. Our capabilities include superior-quality injection and injection stretch blow molding, as well as extrusion blow molding. We use only FDA-approved resins, including recycled (post-consumer) PET and HDPE that have FDA Letters of Non-Objection. We have also recently added polyvinyl chloride (PVC) to the list of resins we can run, for products that are not compatible with other plastic resins.

Alpha manufactures stock and custom containers in a variety of styles and colors, all available with very short lead times. Our in-house engineering and tool-building departments work with customers in a six-step process to bring your ideas 'from art to part,' for a variety of manufacturing processes, including injection stretch blow molding, reheat and blow molding, injection blow molding, and extrusion blow molding.


All of the plant's house state-of-the-art injection blow molding equipment for PET and HDPE bottles and jars to serve both North American and global customers. European customers are also served by a 45,000-square-foot plant in The Netherlands specializing in PET packaging. 

Pretium has global manufacturing facilities thanks to the 2021 acquisition of Alpha Packaging. With bottle manufacturing plants throughout North America and Europe, Pretium Packaging has the flexibility and global reach to fulfill customer orders quickly and efficiently. Packaging is also sold through domestic and international stocking distributors who are very knowledgeable about product lines.

Alpha is a company that is proud of its history but always looks toward its future. The company was founded in 1969, and much of the current management team has been in place since 1985. Dave Spence, Alpha Packaging's president and CEO from 1985 to 2011 resigned from those positions in December 2011 but remains a significant shareholder. In April 2012, Jeff Kellar joined Alpha as its new President and CEO, charged with continuing Alpha's growth in the key industries it serves.
