AIP Welcomes New partner Zipform Packaging

The AIP would like to take this opportunity to welcome our latest National Partner Zipform Packaging. Zipform Packaging’s life started in 2010 with the formation of SOTA Packaging, which was the brainchild of David Kilpatrick and Eddy Pahor. Both men, with strong packaging pedigrees, wanted to build a business that serviced the food service sector but more importantly in parallel was going to bring to market a new form of rigid paper packaging, linear-formed rigid paper containers. The company’s vision was, and still remains, ‘more paper, less plastic.’ That maxim rings more true today than ever with the ever increasing focus on packaging recyclability.
