The facility is serviced by two loading bays capable of accommodating several trailers. We are proficient with U.S. Postal procedures for all classes of mailings and can coordinate with private shippers such as FedEx, UPS, etc. We have years of experience with the packaging of various products and have been a preferred source for such manufacturers as Scott Paper, Kimberly Clark and Irving Tissue.

Testimonials

Crossroads Industries provided my company, Our Towne Marketing & Consulting, LLC., with mail preparation services for the past 5 years. The commitment to quality and professionalism was impressive. The cost was competitive, the service was reliable and of excellent quality. The best part about working with Crossroads Industries is the feelings that I have knowing that I am giving adults, with severe disabilities, a job. A purpose. A paycheck. The environment is extremely professional and regulated. Production quality is monitored and quality is regulated. I could not be happier with the individuals who prepared my magazine for delivery and the WWARC professionals who provided my business with an excellent service and quality. I would recommend them to anyone who has appropriate work. Your heart will fill with pride and joy when you see the pride that these individuals have when working on your project." ~ Jennifer Felts
