Let's Talk

A new website for one of the largest independent corrugated manufacturers in the Midwest.

Celebrating 50 years in business in 2022, SMC Packaging Group came to us looking for a website that could tell their story, communicate their capabilities, and more effectively reach potential customers and employees, as well as current stakeholders.

Powered by Craft CMS, this new website better showcases the breadth of their services, the skills of their team, and the values of the company—and it’s ready to grow along with SMC for years to come.

Research showed us that best-in-class manufacturing peers showcased their capabilities through showing their work. The SMC team solves problems for their customers every day, so we worked with members of their sales team to develop case studies that helped tell that story.
