Product FormulationsPrivate label customers rely on GEMTEK to recommend one of its many in-house formulations or to customize a formulation to meet their product needs. Private label products are typically developed from the GEMTEK product lines:

GEMTEK has also developed retail consumer products that include items such as all purpose cleaners, aluminum wheel cleaner, laundry detergent, pet shampoo and safety solvents, to name a few. These consumer product lines include: automotive, marine, recreational and animal.

The AllerSafe anti-allergen product line offers retail consumer products that have been specially formulated for the allergy and asthma industry. This product line features AS-Dustroy Anti-Allergen Spray, which neutralizes protein allergens from dust mite droppings, dog dander and cat saliva.

The AllerSafe products are naturally helpful to people with chemical sensitivities because they do not contain synthetic dyes, fragrances, builders or reagents.
Product Packaging

GEMTEK has established relationships with numerous vendors to provide the most cost-effective packaging materials to our private label customers. As part of our turnkey services, GEMTEK can source and supply product packaging or the customer may choose to purchase and provide GEMTEK with their packaging components.

There are several standard packaging items that are kept in inventory including HDPE bottles, self-sealing caps and sprayers. Typical plastic bottles range from a 4 oz. cylinder to 32 oz. carafe, and a 64 oz. laundry bottle to a 1 gal. jug. Private label customers who use standard GEMTEK packaging may order as few as 5,000 units per product item. However, packaging components that are specific to the private label customer require 10,000 unit minimum runs, and in some cases 25,000 unit minimums.

GEMTEK began offering contract packaging in 2001 with the expansion of its facilities located in Phoenix, Arizona. Our state-of-the-art equipment coupled with our dedication to service and quality control, guarantee customer satisfaction. GEMTEK is dedicated to providing its customers with a value by delivering quality products, delivered on time, and at a fair price. GEMTEK is proud to be a part of your product development team by providing the following contract packaging services:

  • Blending:GEMTEK can accept and store bulk chemistry delivered in 55-gallon drums to 330-gallon totes. Stainless steel mixing vessels are used for blending product prior to filling, or the product can be transferred for storage to one of our high-boy tanks that range from 1,500 – 5,000 gallons.
  • Liquid Filling:GEMTEK has multiple production lines that include automatic filling machines that can accurately fill containers ranging from 2 ounces to 1 gallon. GEMTEK is one of the few operators of a "bag-in-a-can" aerosol machine which utilizes a "bag-in-a-can" system instead of relying on a dip tube. This unique gas-system allows the can to be used at any angle without wasting product. The aerosol machine typically fills cans ranges from 6 to 24 ounces, and has video jet printer for stamping dates and lot number. Containers can be closed with a foil sealer, self-sealing cap or sprayer, and finished with a heat-seal security band.
  • Labeling: GEMTEK has high-speed labeling capabilities for pressure sensitive two-sided or wraparound labels. Our labeling equipment can also provide lot code identification including date stamping, when required.
  • Packaging: GEMTEK can package your finished product in custom printed boxes you provide or in plain shipping cases, then palletized according to your specifications.
  • Shipping: GEMTEK will coordinate your shipping paperwork including LTL or full-truck loads with your logistics agent or freight forwarder.
