About The Melville Group (TMG)
Helping High-Performance Contract Manufacturers Thrive
TMG (The Melville Group) is the leading industrial marketing agency serving high-performance contract manufacturers in the Food/CPG sectors. We provide a suite of customer-facing and internal services for clients, enabling them to move more powerfully in the market and generate superior enterprise value. 85% of our clients are owned by private equity.
Our mission is to empower contract manufacturers of all sizes to profitably grow their business, increase market share, and build stronger relationships with their customers. Our deep industry knowledge enables us to craft solutions not available from mainstream organizations and tailored to the exacting needs of modern contract packaging and contract packaging companies.
Established in 2008, TMG was founded on the belief that contract manufacturers lacked the market-facing messaging necessary for sustained commercial success. As the industry matured, the needs of successful providers evolved. TMG’s earliest clients today are some of the largest and most successful enterprises in the industry.
Carl Melville, TMG Founder, has worked for early industry leaders, helping navigate them to successful private equity transactions and compound year-over-year growth. Today Carl is a noted advisor, writer, and speaker on the contract packaging and manufacturing industry. He is also an advisor to the Contract Packaging Association and other industry associations.
Unlike generalist B2B agencies, TMG works exclusively with Food and CPG contract manufacturing and contract packaging firms competing in the North American market. 85% of our clients are owned by private equity.
Our clients are diverse in size, scope and production footprint, and ambition. What they all share is a drive to perform above market standards and grow faster than the overall industry.
