West Chicago, IL, July 26, 2012 --( Innovative Development Takes Pro-Pak Industries, Inc. and its Three Divisions into their Third Decade of Providing Utility Marking and Safety Products

By ingeniously developing new products from the same raw materials, a West Chicago, Illinois firm continues to evolve as it celebrates 20 years in business during 2012.

President/CEO Darrell G. Holmes attributes their success to hard work, dedication and the ability to adapt to the ever-changing markets they serve.

Beginning as a sales and marketing firm in 1992, Pro-Pak Industries, Inc. now ranks as one of the largest manufacturers and suppliers of utility marking products for the construction and utility markets abroad and in the U.S. The firm has three focused business divisions: Pro-Line Safety Products, Pro-Line Wire and Cable, and Creative Impressions.

Utility marking and safety continue to be the primary focus of this ever-evolving business, thus the tagline of “We Cover the World with Safety.” The wide range of safety products on their website at makes it difficult to dispute Holmes’ claim that they “save lives.”

As to ingenuity, Holmes points out that one of the firm’s newest products, Pro-Trace tracer wire, is the result of innovatively combining ideas gleaned from other applications. This structurally superior underground tracer wire offers flexibility and strength for both open trench and directional drilling applications. The Pro-Trace line bonds a high carbon steel core with the superior traceability of copper and protects the wire from corrosion with polyethylene insulation.

“Pro-Pak Industries and its divisions have risen to meet the challenges of a multi-faceted, broad line of products and taken them through the steps of not only development, but manufacturing and distribution,” explained Holmes. “We work on many different approaches to solving industries’ marking and safety issues.”

The firm does have a fun side of the business and this is evident in its Creative Impressions division. Born out of demand, this division provides promotional products to a variety of clients well beyond the construction market, including Hollywood.

Yes, Hollywood. Several years back advertising firms were looking for new ideas for promotions. Creative Impressions developed advertising specialty tapes for the big screen, television and corporate events. They made advertising tapes for the “Bee Movie,” “The Simpsons”,” The Sopranos”,” Fear Factor”,” Survivor” and many more. Creative Impressions also produced “Save Our Troops” tapes for groups and individuals to use. This program received nation-wide media attention.

As Pro-Pak Industries celebrates its 20-year anniversary, it is safe to say you can expect more innovative products in the future. Perhaps their tagline will evolve to “We Cover the World with Safety and Innovation” and rightly so.
