Since 1961, Western Container has been building a reputation as a quality manufacturer of custom folding cartons and paperboard specialty products. Our focus is simple: to be responsive to our customers’ diverse needs, and to do it efficiently and economically. We pride ourselves on being small enough to react quickly and large enough to lead innovatively.
In our industry, it’s people who make the difference. That’s why Western Container is committed to recruiting and retaining the best. Our Kansas City, Missouri manufacturing facility employs 130 people with an average of nearly 20 years’ experience in the folding carton business. This experience, combined with extensive ongoing training, keeps us ready to anticipate our customers’ individual needs and exceed expectations with each job we handle.
Our manufacturing facility is located in Kansas City, Missouri with convenient access to customers throughout the country. In addition, our Kansas City office serves as the headquarters for Americraft Carton. This multiple plant partnership provides nationwide coverage and greater purchasing power which often translates to cost savings for our customers.
We are privately owned and operated and that makes us easy to work with. Our streamlined corporate structure allows us to provide quick answers and responses to customers’ immediate needs. Simply put, our corporate structure won’t interfere with your business. Our management team works directly with customers to help expedite projects and get the job done on schedule.
In 2007, Western Container entered a relationship with EIP Logistics to further enhance our services and the relationships with our customers.
