2002 – Present
Chief Packaging was created.
Chief Packaging was started and Mueller Technologies is integrated in Oldsmar, Florida. The world class food grade facility was built by the brothers (Martin Mueller and Richard Mueller), with high speed tube winding, and custom built assembly machinery by their sister-company, Osgood Industries Inc., and an injection molding was created to produce the Push Treats.
