Green Bay Packaging Keeps Safety in the Family, Paper360º January/February 2020

It was 1933 when George Kress founded Green Bay Packaging Inc., offering corrugated shipping containers to replace the bulky, expensive wooden crates then in popular use. Since its founding, GBP has been a family-owned, vertically integrated company that now includes recycled and virgin linerboard mills; facilities for producing corrugated containers, folding cartons, pressure-sensitive label rollstock, and custom point of purchase displays; specialty converting operations; timberlands; and a sawmill facility. Headquartered in Green Bay, WI, Green Bay Packaging Inc. is dedicated to innovative development of its products and forestry resources, with a focus on quality, sustainability, and continuous improvement.

During its 87-year history, the company has had only three presidents, representing three generations of the Kress family: founder George Kress served until 1959; then his son James served as president from 1960 through 1994, and as chairman of the board from 1994 through his death in 2019. Current President and CEO William Kress now carries on the leadership established by his grandfather and father.
