Unpacking Spearhead:

We are Revolutionizing the Consumer Packaging Industry.

After more than 20 years in the industry, Co-founders, Heather Fritzsche, CEO and Robert Catalano, Chief Innovation Officer & Co-founder, saw a need to modernize an industry still clinging to the idea that “we do things a certain way because that’s the way it’s always been done.”


We set out to revolutionize the industry and redefine how packaging and brand work together to deliver a more memorable buyer experience.

Through exclusive partnerships with expert pioneers in global Physical Brand Enhancements™, rethinking the manufacturing process, and refining automation operations, Spearhead delivers fast and efficient results.

The Spearhead Pioneer program continues to grow and expand. Members from around the world are excited about Spearhead’s success in reinventing how the industry works together and the new opportunities they provide to deliver unparalleled versatility in brand enhancement options. Luxury Packaging (China) Co., Ltd and Spearhead (Ningbo) Commodities Co., Ltd now carry the Spearhead name and offer production of textile bags and luxury boxes, employing the company’s proprietary Physical Brand Enhancement™ design, manufacture, and delivery process.

Spearhead is committed to supporting other women-owned businesses and offering sustainable Physical Brand Enhancements™ for clients while creating a better brand experience for consumers.
