The International Corrugated Packaging Foundation (ICPF) has announced that Hatboro, Pennsylvania based Acme Corrugated Box Co. Inc. has become the most recent ICPF corporate partner by pledging $50,000 to support the foundation’s educational mission.

“Acme Corrugated Box has been well aware of ICPF’s work with universities and students across the country for a long time”, said Bob Cohen, Acme President. “Our operations have been in contact with ICPF for numerous years and we look forward to using ICPF resources to assist us in recruiting students and new graduates who will serve as Acme’s managers and executives in the future.”  

ICPF Board Vice Chair, Tim Bergwall, President of Paper Packaging and Land Management of Greif, Inc., welcomed Acme Corrugated Box as a new ICPF corporate partner, thanking Cohen for the company’s pledge. “We appreciate this pledge from Acme Corrugated Box,” said Bergwall. “Acme’s support further enables ICPF’s educational work and its ever-expanding outreach to universities and students on behalf of the corrugated packaging & displays industry.” 

In 1918, Acme Corrugated Box founder, Edward J. Cohen, packed his horse-drawn wagon with scrap paper and traveled through Philadelphia’s streets in search of customers. He soon added reclaimed corrugated boxes to satisfy the diverse needs of the bustling city. From this start, Acme Corrugated Box Company has grown to inhabit a 250,000-square-foot facility adjacent to Pennsylvania’s busiest thoroughfare. Acme has been part of the business community for over 100 years and its history is marked by continuous improvement, with an eye toward meeting the challenges of the future. As a leading box manufacturer in the Mid-Atlantic Region, Acme recognizes the important role its employees play in the company’s success.
