AIM was founded in 1990 by Thomas (Tom) Stafford, EMBA 1989. Before starting AIM, Tom had extensive sales/engineering experience with reusable packaging companies such as Menasha Corporation, Lewis Systems (Orbis), Buckhorn, Plastech International (Rotonics Manufacturing, Inc.), and Snyder Plastics. Working in multiple roles from marketing representative to vice president of sales, he discovered that there was no individual manufacturer providing everything a company needs to support their reusable packaging system, so he created AIM Reusable Packaging in 1990 to meet the growing reusable packaging needs of companies and industries.
In 2023, AIM was purchased by Scott Stafford, Tom’s son. Scott has a professional background in finance combined with extensive sales experience in multiple industries. Working in official and unofficial roles with Tom, Scott gained expertise in reusable packaging and deep knowledge in the running of AIM. Scott looks forward to serving existing and new AIM customers.
