Derek’s outBOX – December 4, 2020

  1. This is an email I received from the buyer at XXX:


”We have never had a corrugated vendor rate as high as Volk Packaging has. To think that the unprecedented numbers you have achieved in quality, delivery, responsiveness, and overall performance have been set in your first year as a supplier is unheralded. We are very pleased with the transition to Volk Packaging & look to grow our relationship in the coming year.”

  1. The status of the VPC Sales Derby is not much different than before. Shane is in the lead with 4 followed by 2 for Steve and Chuck and 1 for Forbes and Toby.  Since the flexo is still not running 100% and the price increase along with helping in the plant has consumed the sales reps’ time, I am extending the contest to the end of Q1.    You can still make a wager.  Remember, it costs you nothing to place a bet with $100 Derek Dollars and you can win a bunch of free Volk swag.  Amy will be around with wager sheets.   I hope we get some more bets in. 


  1. The winners of No Shave November are:

Bushiest Beard:  Chad Ingalls
