As if revolutionizing quote and delivery times for the custom packaging industry wasn’t enough, one of the Palmetto State’s most innovative manufacturing startups is now sharing their expertise with Clemson University’s licensed online curriculum at the Packaging School in Greenville, SC.

tForm, a provider of thermoformed packaging headquartered in Williamston, SC, will collaborate with the school to formulate course-related content covering packaging foundations, polymers, sustainability, design and strategy.

Working with tForm will enable the Packaging School to provide its professional students with an inside look at a living, breathing thermoforming plant, said Packaging School Director, Sara Shumpert.

“This company is not your average thermoforming manufacturer,” she said. “More than just the package, tForm provides a transformational packaging experience complete with custom design service and the fastest turnaround time in the industry.”

The Packaging Certificate is composed of 12 online courses covering the foundations of packaging and provides relevant and comprehensive education on the field. Students will learn the materials, processes and influences shaping the advancement of the industry.

tForm will provide “real world” guidance to students covering cost effective applications for thermoformed plastic and package products, said tForm founder and CEO, Ben Moore.

“We will introduce students to the appropriate materials and most up-to-date methods for designing and quoting packaging,” he said. “Students will be able to design a package, change its dimensions and materials and see the immediate impact on the cost of finished products.”

Clemson University exclusively licensed the Packaging School to take their traditional in-person curriculum and create an online professional packaging program that is driven by real-world lessons and applications.

Packaging is the physical link between over 250 automotive companies in South Carolina, said the Packaging School’s Chief Learning Officer, Clemson Professor, Andrew Hurley, PhD.

“It is necessary to establish a common core vocabulary in packaging for all stakeholders in South Carolina’s manufacturing ecosystem,” he said. “This knowledge enables businesses and individuals to leverage innovation at scale and implement improvements in efficiencies, and the Packaging School makes it easy for professionals to access this information on the job.”
