How we do business

Our reputation grows, one customer at a time…

Almac Imports takes pride in combining great prices with quick and dependable service.

We know that our reputation is only as good as our last customer interaction, so we never rest on our laurels. It is because of this approach that our business has grown steadily over time.

We provide insider tips to industry newcomers and hold their hands as they learn the business, answering questions like:

How much shred should I buy?

How do I measure the baskets for ordering?

Are the plastic wicker baskets dishwasher safe?

What kind of weave should I get in a basket to make sure the contents don’t fall out?

Check out a weekly blog posts for more tips, tricks and industry information. Almac Imports serves our long-standing customers by helping them discover new materials, products and accessories and stay current with packaging trends.

We value your time…

That is why we put an emphasis on fast order processing.

Your order will ship out within 24 hours of receipt and the majority of orders received before 11:00 a.m. will go out the same day.

We value your business…

That is why we work hard to offer the most competitive prices possible. It’s also the reason we bend over backwards for you. Need to split a basket set? Unlike our competitors, we say “No problem.” Why should you have to buy all the baskets in a set, and then try to find a use for the sizes you didn’t want?

Let’s create something together…

Custom orders are one of our specialties. Through our many years of experience, we have found that everyone has different packaging needs. If you have an idea, or have seen something you would like to replicate or use as inspiration, we can work with you to make it a reality. Or perhaps you want to highlight a company logo, frame a new product in a dynamic way or provide a one-of-a-kind basket for a special event. Almac Imports will play matchmaker between your needs and the products that will meet them.

We are in the business of supplying our customers, not competing with them…

Almac Imports does not sell ready made gift baskets—we wouldn’t want to compete with the people we serve.

Welcome to Almac Imports and thank you for your business… If you have questions, we have answers.
