Proclamation presented November 22, 2021 to IPS Industries, Inc. at Cerritos City Council Chambers.

IPS Industries, Inc. (IPS) is a leading supplier and manufacturer offering “Intelligent Packaging Solutions” to the North American marketplace. Founded in 1985, IPS began by servicing the local Southern California market of independent wholesalers and restaurant/food distributors. In the early 1990s, IPS experienced a boom of growth as its founder, Frank Su, took the company and entered the national marketplace, crossing multiple business segments. That steady growth brought the company’s client base to what it is today, consisting of national chain stores in segments of retail, grocery/convenient stores, restaurant, food service, institutional/janitorial, industrial and automotive.

Now entering into its 36th year, IPS continues to make strides. In recent years, the company entered the e-commerce arena, successfully launching a highly popular Amazon marketplace followed by its own online consumer site with an intelligent line of private label products. Being well established and widely known in the industry, IPS never stops growing and evolving, and strives to continue answering the needs of its client and market bases.

Evolving with the ever-changing market and client needs is the secret to IPS’ longevity and success. The strength of an expansive network of North American and Asian supply partners, complemented by its own manufacturing facility in Texas, gives IPS a range of product lines that is unmatched by any other in the industry. Answering to the global pandemic needs, IPS added a comprehensive personal protective equipment line of products in 2021, and made meaningful donations in the most critical and short-supplied pandemic times.

The powerhouse behind the IPS driving force is a team of loyal and highly experienced employees based out of Cerritos as well as two other locations in Texas and New Jersey. Staffed nationally by a team of multi-talented individuals, the IPS family of employees takes a hands-on approach to their jobs. This team handles everything in-house, including product innovation and development, intellectual property, sales and marketing, customer service, procurement and sourcing, air/ocean and overland freight, customs brokering, distribution and warehousing, manufacturing, accounting and finance and information technology. Many of IPS’ employees have service durations nearly as long as the company’s 36-year history.

On its 20th anniversary as a City of Cerritos business, IPS is celebrated and recognized for its service to the local community as well as to the national marketplace. IPS’ corporate headquarters is located at 12641 166th Street in Cerritos; the West Coast distribution center is located at 12850 Midway Place in Cerritos.
