The story of Green Bay Packaging (GBP) starts back in 1933 — when George Kress, our founder, first began working on corrugated containers as a replacement for crude wooden ones. Our headquarters are still in Green Bay, Wisconsin — but the company has spread its wings far and wide since then. Today, we employ upwards of 4,000 people in more than 35 facilities, located in 15 states. And our range of operations is vast, thanks to the complete vertical integration of our company in the pulp and paper industry. We cultivate some of the biggest timberlands in the industry, and we process that timber with a lumber mill, paper mills, and corrugated box plants. Along with a folding carton division and operations focusing on coated products — we provide a wide variety of employment opportunities!

Our Rich Heritage
Building a better box from the beginning. In 1933, George F. Kress offered a superior alternative for customers using expensive, cumbersome wooden boxes. The motivation was the customer. The vision was corrugated shipping containers.
Over the years, we have developed a company culture dedicated to three groups of people — our customers, our employees, and our communities.
Our work focuses on safety, quality, and exceptional service for our customers, regardless of which GBP division you visit. And we know that valuing employees is the only way to achieve that, which is why we support our creative and talented team with a positive work environment and a variety of benefits.
GBP is, at its core, a family company. And that’s exactly how we treat our employees and the members of our local communities — like family. We are committed to ethical and responsible business practices, and safety has always been a top priority throughout all of our divisions.
Green Bay Packaging shows its dedication to its employees through a competitive, high-value, and comprehensive benefits program — allowing employees to cover themselves and their family members. The health and general well-being of our team members are always on our minds — and we’re always ready to show that in practice. As you’ll see if you decide to join the team at GBP, this is the reason why Forbes named the company one of the best midsize employers in the United States.
