Ron Mines, known as the Boxologist, began his career in the packaging industry as a teenager in 1967.

 His experience in the box industry comes mostly from working as an employee for two of the largest   box (and other packaging) manufacturers in Australia, through to 1999.

 His box industry experience ranges through virtually all aspects of manufacturing, technical sales, administration and management.

Focusing on the technical aspects of the industry and it’s interaction with other forms of packaging and the primary product, has occupied Ron’s attention over the past 30 years.

Since 1999, he has been successfully consulting to a wide scope of the packaging industry and customers of that industry. He trades as the Boxologist

Ron has set about transferring the knowledge he has gained over the years to anyone who has the desire to learn from him.

He has developed many technical, industry-focused training programs and presented to a wide variety of trainees. Ron has Certificate IV – Assessment and Workplace Training qualification.

Ron recently introduced an innovative service to clients who need help with finalising their packaging project.

Start-up businesses and other businesses developing fabulous new product lines often devote so much time and energy to the development of their products, that the final packaging gets overlooked until the last minute.

He has now expanded his business application to assist clients, for a modest fee, to get them successfully through the process of designing their final pack to comply with all of the many aspects of ensuring safe, secure delivery of your precious new product to your intended customers.
