History

Minimus Products was co-founded in 2008 by Paul Shrater, Co-founder of Minimus.biz, and engineer Joel Shrater. Minimus.biz is the world leader in focusing solely on retailing and wholesaling travel-sized and individual-sized items. Through his work with Minimus.biz, Paul Shrater identified several products that customers were interested in that did not exist in the marketplace, or did not exist in the manner in which the customer wanted them. In addition, there were several customers asking for their product to be done in a travel-size or individual-size, either for promotional purposes or for getting their existing brand into a smaller size as an extension of an existing line. Thus, Minimus Products was created to handle these needs.Since then, Minimus Products has expanded its capabilities into larger format filling of bottles, jars, bags, and more, as customers asked for more than just sample sizes of their products. The company has found that its entrepreneurial approach to working with customers and their brands, along with its focus on small and medium sized runs, has helped to fill a gap in the marketplace and enabled Minimus Products to build strong relationships with its customers that transcend a strictly vendor-for-hire relationship.In March of 2016, Minimus Products expanded their warehouse space and built out additional food production rooms to support the growth of the company.
