About Us

Although GBIPS started in 1995, the company has a history dating back to 1944 when a former Navy Inspector, his brother, and a friend started export packing and crating in Brooklyn, NY. Shipping care packages was it. In 1954, when Lee Schiller came aboard, Export Packing, Etc. was in the middle of Military Packing Contracts with the Corps of Engineers, the Signals Corps and GSA. Export Packing, Etc. was also handling a large portion of the commissary shipments overseas thru the Brooklyn Army terminal. The company came to Harrisburg, PA as Direct Delivery Packing with Lee directing the receiving, inspecting, and container loading for the New Cumberland Army Depot.

In 1980, G & B Packing, Inc. was formed to do the commissary deliveries to the new location at Mechanicsburg Navy Depot. We handled as many as a million cases a month of food and general MDSE. In 1995, that operation ceased and in October, 1995 GB International Packing Services was officially formed. Since then, we have become a major player in the military packing field, as well as supplier of tactical and general items that the Navy buys from us. We supply the major defense depots throughout the world from our Harrisburg, PA warehouse.

We are a complete one-stop-shop for both Military Spec Packing as well as Commercial and Export Packing and Shipping.

Our design department can offer special requirements for any package that can stand the most severe environmental conditions, as well as solve the most delicate items to be shipped, and any packing problems for a host of local and international customers.




John McDonald, manager of service and test with York International’s marine systems division, said G/B brings expertise to a job that requires knowledge of military specifications for packing. At least 90 percent of U.S. naval vessels carry air-conditioning and refrigeration systems manufactured by York, McDonald said.
