Accurate Box Company was founded in 1944 by Henry Hirsh, originally as a small folding carton company in Newark, NJ.  In the 1960s, Henry’s son, Charles Hirsh, took over the business.  Under his guidance, the company experienced tremendous growth.  Hirsh’s vision led to the marriage of graphics to corrugated (litho-lamination) in the 1970s as Accurate Box became one of the first companies in the United States to purchase an Asitrade, an in-line corrugator/laminator.  By the 1980s, Accurate Box had outgrown its manufacturing plant and moved to its current nine-acre location in Paterson, NJ.  Charles’ daughter, Lisa Hirsh, and her husband, Mark Schlossman, joined the company during this time.  In the mid-1990s, Lisa Hirsh became president and maintained the tradition of reinvesting in the company’s future.  Under Lisa’s direction, we continue to modernize and expand our capacity while taking prominent steps toward manufacturing more sustainable products.  Today, Accurate Box is women-owned, celebrating 77 years in business, and one of the largest independent box manufactures of litho-laminated packaging in the United States.
