Cannabis Industrial Marketplace is pleased to have Contempo Specialty Packaging from Providence, RI exhibiting at our September Cannabis Business Expo in Rosemont, IL, booth number 636. Contempo is a packaging company focused entirely on providing the best customer experience possible. They develop, manufacture and warehouse a variety of products at both their USA Headquarters (Providence, RI) and China Headquarters (Shenzhen).

Their company name is Contempo Card, but they design & manufacture all types of packaging — jewelry cards were their first product.

Culture is everything to them. They believe that getting your company culture right is the best way to ultimately serve your customers and keep them coming back.

Contempo’s founding is a classic story of supply and demand. Vark Sr worked with his father in the jewelry manufacturing business in Rhode Island. In the 80’s, Providence, RI was the jewelry capital of the world, and everyone wanted a piece of the jewelry pie. Vark Sr noticed something odd: while there were hundreds upon hundreds of jewelry manufacturers, there was only one jewelry packaging supplier. He thought: “If I can build a packaging company based on exceptional customer service, customers will come.”
