In March of 1998, Mitsubishi Electronics America, Inc. ceased all semiconductor manufacturing operations in our Durham, NC facility. It was determined at the time that all production equipment needed to be packed and returned to Mitsubishi’s facilities throughout Japan. Since the value of this equipment easily exceeds several million dollars in value, and is very delicate in nature, it was only natural for Mitsubishi to choose Far Packaging Company Inc. to exclusively handle all of the packing and crating operations for the project. Glenn and his staff handled this job seamlessly and in a very professional manner. They worked very well with the freight forwarder and the various trucking companies involved with the return of the equipment. After relying heavily on Far Packaging Company for a period of 9 months, I would highly recommend Glen and his staff for any packing and crating situation from just a few crates up to several hundred.

Our sincere thanks for the time and effort to get the three packing crates both built and delivered much earlier than had been originally scheduled. Your gracious assistance in their rapid fabrication will facilitate our move to TN, and those crates will protect some valuable, significant, and irreplaceable family heirlooms as they are transported out to our new home next Monday and Tuesday. I can’t thank you enough for all your time and efforts to have the crates so thoughtfully and well constructed. Our sincere best regards to you and staff at Far Packaging for a job well done! Much appreciated.

We just received the unit in Needham with your crate. Got to say, “Great Job!” Say, I have a house in CA you should be building. Seriously, this was an excellent crate, and I believe the one that went to Singapore also went thru OK. Thanks!

Thank you for the professional and thorough packing job you did in shipping the antique sewing machine to California. I was especially impressed with the blue cushion feet on the box and the extra bracketing with foam inside to keep the sewing machine and the stool from hitting each other or the box. Everything made it here without a scratch. I really appreciated your friendly service, your helpfulness to a customer unfamiliar with shipping practices, and your conscientious follow-up calls to see that everything got here OK. I was also sure to tell my brother-in-law of Fritz Import/Export in Cary (now UPS) about my good experience with you. Thank you!
