“Laser focusing our team’s efforts on serving our clients while managing and continually improving our organization is front and center to our business philosophy at Unipak.  Knowing that risk is a part of our everyday operations, yet isn’t our strong suit, only added to our concern that there may be pieces to the larger puzzle of insurance coverage, risk and premium costs that we were missing.  Having printing industry experts from GKG/PGCA as our business partners has truly educated us and significantly improved our position in all things insurance related.  In turn, this has enabled us to increase focus on the things that will drive meaningful impact to our team and organization. ”
