Our Company History
Ware-Pak was founded by Robert Plechaty in 1963 to provide warehousing and book fulfillment services to the publishing industry. While working at Cuneo Press in Melrose Park, Robert Plechaty was approached by JG Ferguson and Meredith Corp to provide fulfillment services. In order to provide these services, Cuneo Press gave Robert a corner of their warehouse to use and that is where Ware-Pak began.
After learning the book fulfillment business from his father by working summers, Robert’s son Mark Plechaty joined the business and worked his way through all departments, taking responsibility for a newly acquired book binding operation in 1985. This part of Ware-Pak’s operations was phased out in the late 90’s as the demand for third party fulfillment services increased.
In the late 1990’s, Ware-Pak transitioned to fully integrated, real-time, warehouse management technology. This conversion and other specialized systems added over the years enabled Ware-Pak to achieve the highest degree of control over its operations while giving customers 24/7 access to online, real-time inventory control information.
Today, Ware-Pak has the warehouse capacity, technology and experience leading brands demand, backed by a team of seasoned professionals who remain dedicated to its founder’s original vision… providing the finest, most efficient third party order fulfillment services.
