South Hutchinson, Kansas based American Packaging Corporation, a division of Lawrence Paper Company, recently announced a 100,000-square-foot expansion to its current facility in South Hutchinson.
As privately held independent companies, American Packaging and Lawrence Paper are manufacturers and distributors of corrugated shipping boxes, industrial packaging and point-of-sale displays to businesses throughout the Midwest. Work on the expansion, which will allow space for new equipment, began in December 2020.
“Since merging with Lawrence Paper Company in January of 2012, we have taken advantage of their many resources to facilitate our growth,” said Tony Schleich, President/General Manager of American Packaging. “None of this would have been possible, however, without the cooperation of the City of South Hutchinson, and we cannot thank them enough.”
American Packaging currently employs 43 and expects to add additional jobs in the future. Lawrence Paper Company dates back to 1882. The expansion of American Packaging will help continue its growth into the future.
