The packaging printing market is an area of growth and opportunity, a business where innovative, high quality companies can grow and flourish and companies that stand still lose ground quickly.
Having an entrepreneurial spirit is essential to success in packaging, and Accurate Box Company is well set on that front. Founded in Paterson, NJ in 1944, this third-generation family-owned high quality corrugated box company has thrived in every market it has focused on, transitioning into new fields when the time was right. As the company celebrates its 70th anniversary in 2014, it has become a leading manufacturer of high strength litho-laminated packaging, displays and standees.
Mark Schlossman, the company’s executive vice president and chief operating officer, noted that Accurate Box started as a folding carton printer before completely switching over to fluted corrugated.
“We are printers – it is our forte. We originally focused on folding carton, but moved into flute,” Schlossman said. “By the mid-1990s, there were very few folding carton printers left. Now we are 100% flute.”
One of the keys to the company’s growth is its ability to work with its customers to develop innovative packaging that is both eye-catching and functional.
“We are constantly looking for new avenues to sell boxes to, which is a big reason for our growth,” Schlossman said. “our mission is to be the best in this country, and we are always searching for new and different jobs to be manufactured here. Our design team specializes in structural and graphic design, whether we are creating handles, gravity-fed or jaw mouth packages, to name a few.”
