Quality Management

Good Manufacturing Practices
Winston Packaging is a cGMP compliant packaging company. Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) is a manufacturing quality protocol defined by US federal law and administered by the FDA. The cGMP system ensures products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards. In the United States, cGMP regulations for industries such as foods, pharmaceutical, medical devices, and most recently tobacco, fall under the authority of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Graphic Measures International
GMI, a third party certification body, measures performance of packaging suppliers. GMI certifies print facilities to effectively manage production and enhance packaging quality. Winston Packaging achieved GMI certification in 2010 as required by Target, Inc., Walgreens and other large retailers.

G7 Master Printer
The G7 Proof to Print Process uses the most modern technology, techniques, and press controls to produce the closest visual match from proof to print. Winston Packaging has maintained G7 Master Printer status from IDEAlliance since 2011.

Facility Audits
Customers and prospects are encouraged to conduct a personalized audit of our facilities to experience the Winston Difference first hand.

Quality Lab
In the quality lab our technicians conduct frequent tests on the physical and visual properties of cartons during production. Tests include rub for inks, color hue and density, coefficient of friction, kinetic friction tests for slip, score-bend and gloss readings. Our experienced quality team tests samples from each production run to continuously monitor our processes.

Customer Focused
At Winston Packaging we get to know each customer individually. Each new job’s unique requirements are documented on our Customer Specification Form. This becomes the protocol for how each item is printed, finished, packed and shipped each time that component is produced or reprinted, assuring you get a consistent product whether it is produced today or a year from now.
