Molded Pulp Engineering
Molded Pulp Engineering all began when the company’s owner, Walter Maguire, was attending a packaging trade show overseas. Walter became extremely interested in molded pulp packaging for many reasons. With an environmental consciousness and over forty years of experience in the packaging world, he created a new company called Molded Pulp Engineering (MPE). He found the time was right and embraced the fact that he can raise the environmental consciousness of his clients while also assisting them in creating a cost sensitive solution that enhances their “brand”, and would help to change the current environmental misdirection of our planet.
The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it
The technology of molded pulp is changing rapidly to create alternatives to plastic products. MPE is on the forefront of the R & D that is creating products for the agriculture, food, medical, retail and packaging industries to name a few. We have the capability of laminating our pulp which changes the physical properties of the pulp to withstand moisture & high and low temperatures, creating huge opportunities for industries looking to move away from plastic packaging.
Walter moved forward with a concentrated force to bring to the market a sustainable, compostable and biodegradable packaging product that was not only environmentally friendly, but is clean-edged, smooth and sleek in design. The pulp resembles plastic and is often difficult to distinguish between the two. This pulp can package our clients products in a sophisticated manner and assist them with their social responsibility. Walter views companies packaging challenges as MPE’s opportunity to help them shine. He supports new efforts and enjoys sharing his experience and his knowledge and the knowledge of his team to collaborate on a project and bring it to fruition.
