Complete Packaging Solutions Since 1959
Colbert Packaging was founded in 1959 when Charles Colbert purchased the property and assets of Kroeck Paper Box, a Chicago company founded in 1892. Today, Colbert Packaging remains a family-owned company and offers one of the most comprehensive, diverse and inventive portfolios of packaging solutions in the industry. Our three manufacturing facilities produce high-quality custom folding cartons, rigid setup boxes, pressure-sensitive roll labels, package inserts, compliance packaging, sustainability and security solutions, and much more.
