At LMI Packaging, we have engineering, research and development, and technical services teams dedicated to ensuring you get the exact lid that works for your product. With over three decades of industry experience and future-focused innovative thinking, our teams consistently work to understand the wide range of differences in material properties as they evolve to better recommend the most appropriate and compatible material for your product and operational needs. We consistently qualify new materials, create unique packaging formats, and identify solutions to improve performance while reducing or eliminating disruption to your production. We are focused on providing education and support to our customers to help them achieve successful product use and proper material integration on machinery, while testing for quality and performance reliability. This means you can count on quality lidding that meets your product expectations.
Diverse Selection of Materials
Our research and product development process is unique in that we do not rely on one material or supplier for your lid or label solution. At LMI Packaging, we are able to provide the most appropriate and compatible material for each of your individual product packaging and operational process needs. We identify solutions to be the best for you – not just what may be more convenient for us. We value and nurture all of our relationships – those with our customers and with our vendors and industry partners. We have built direct relationships with our supply chain partners across the industry that keep us up-to-date on material changes, machinery requirements, and technology advancements. These connections allow us to support our customers in reducing or eliminating their product performance concerns and disruptions.
Enhanced Research & Development
Our team has a wealth of experience in the development of new products, particularly in identifying opportunities for new materials in product applications and the creation of prototype lidding to test material compatibility. At LMI Packaging, we are focused on identifying the lidding solution that meets performance criteria for your specific needs and applications, ranging from yogurt to coffee, hard-to-hold dressings and sauces, and more.
We offer a unique process that does not rely on pre-packaged solutions. We will work side-by-side with you to identify your challenges and create a lidding or label solution that solves your specific packaging concerns and meets your product expectations.
Our custom engineered lid and label solutions include:
- Identification of materials

Proprietary System of Testing Protocols
Through years of experience, we have built a proprietary system of rigorous testing protocols designed to ensure the product we deliver meets the specific and unique needs of each customer, product, and market segment. Our testing is conducted through real world application to verify the overall integrity of the lid and to ensure your product performance is meeting expectations – with no surprises.
