Our Company

Our History

Big 3 Packaging is a new, innovative company specializing in providing patented, unit-dose, water-soluble packaging solutions for industrial and consumer applications.

While Big 3 is new, our story is not. We've been in business for over 40 years.

Lawrence R. Dickler, entrepreneur and "soap man," compounded our first professional cleaning and maintenance specialty chemicals in 1968. Dickler Chemical Laboratories (DCL) introduced his products to local Philadelphia-area sanitary supply businesses to great acclaim. Over the years, a dedicated team responded to the growing needs of some of the world's largest companies — by formulating 30+ new solutions to solve vexing cleaning challenges effectively.

In 2000, Dickler received patents for PAK-IT®, a revolutionary innovation in cleaning solution delivery.  It was the first and only patented Water Soluble Liquid Packet on the market. Simple to use (just drop one in water), PAK-IT® provides perfect unit-dosed portion control of liquid solutions in a stable, eco-friendly film.

In 2009, JBI Inc. purchased DCL, Inc. and PAK-IT®, Inc. and introduced additional products to the product line. These formulations are above all effective and  environmentally-friendly formulas.

2012 starts a new era with new ownership, a new name, and a renewed dedication to conducting business with People, Planet and Profit at our core. Richard Higgs, a successful international investment broker and serial entrepreneur with several business interests spanning continents, time zones and languages, assumed the helm with a well-defined mission to lead, not follow, in sustainable solutions.

Big 3 Packaging is, first and foremost, an innovative packaging solutions provider for a cleaner future.

Our flagship product, cleaning solutions in PAK-IT® pouches, are the foundation for delivery of superior formulations for industrial and consumer use worldwide. Whether you require cleaners, sanitizers and disinfectants, agrochemicals and fertilizers, or other additives that need to be dosed with precision — we are here to help. We offer unique, innovative packaging and cleaning solutions that are highly effective, safe for people and the planet, and last but not least, an improvement to your profit margin. Most of all, we are particularly proud to be putting Americans back to work, manufacturing cleaning products that will benefit the whole world.

Big 3 Packaging was named to reinforce the three guiding principles of our business model.

People. Planet. Profit.

In an age of waste and excess, we believe that it is incumbent on us to be observant of the three pillars of all modern business.

Known as the triple bottom line (TBL), we strive to meet the needs of society with careful attention to our effect on the environment while achieving profitable growth. These are not isolated concepts in which one grows if another is de-emphasized. On the contrary — they are tightly integrated principles. In fact, several analyses have proven that companies with proper respect for our resources enhance profitability by ensuring a happy and healthy workforce and client base. At Big 3 Packaging, we know that sustainability is not just a fad; it is a true business imperative for companies of all sizes, and a benchmark of successful industries throughout the United States of America.

Many of our products are formulated to be environmentally-friendly. And we're constantly reinvesting to develop new innovative solutions that meet our TBL goals. Our PAK-IT® product line is safe for people, respectful of our natural resources and saves money and time, too. We think you'll love our products--all made in America, of course!
