Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp.

Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp., a leading player in military electronics, faced a critical challenge when they received approval for the manufacturing of a brand-new, fragile electronics cabinet. The urgency of the situation was exacerbated by the fact that they had no packaging solution in place for this delicate product. Espey turned to Viking, known for its expertise in crafting innovative packaging solutions, to provide a rapid and foolproof answer to their packaging needs.


Espey's problem was twofold. Firstly, they had a new product ready for production, and time was of the essence. Secondly, the fragility of the electronics cabinet meant that it required a packaging solution that could ensure its safe transit and delivery to customers. Without a suitable packaging solution, Espey was facing potential delays in shipping or the risk of damaged products.


Viking rose to the challenge presented by Espey with remarkable speed and ingenuity. Within just one week, Viking's team designed and sampled a customized corrugated box specifically tailored to fit and protect the fragile electronics cabinet. Simultaneously, a foam packaging solution was designed and prototyped to further enhance the protection of the delicate electronics from the forces of destruction during transportation.

Communication was key to the success of this project. Viking and Espey maintained regular contact throughout the design and prototype phases, using Zoom meetings and phone calls to discuss progress, present prototypes, and make real-time adjustments based on Espey's feedback. This open and collaborative approach ensured that Espey was directly involved in the development process, guaranteeing that the final packaging solution met their exact requirements, and ensuring it was done right the first time.


Our solution provided Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. with a tailor-made packaging solution that addressed their urgent needs for a fragile electronics cabinet. The corrugated box and foam packaging not only protected the delicate electronics during transit but also allowed for efficient packaging and handling on Espey's end.

At Viking, our commitment is to provide packaging solutions that meet our customers' unique requirements. Get in touch to learn more!
