Headquartered in Elkhart, IN, Welch Packaging was started in 1985 with four employees. Since then, Welch has become one of the most dynamic independent packaging companies in the United States. Welch now has seven corrugated sheet plants throughout the Midwest. Welch Packaging has grown from four employees to over five hundred employees. With customers at the core of our business philosophy, we have a service discipline that makes us easy to do business with. Through organic growth, strategic acquisitions, and a strong entrepreneurial spirit Welch Packaging continues to be a leader in custom packaging solutions.
At Welch Packaging, we believe in building boxes, but we don’t believe in putting our associates into them! Welch hires people who fit our business culture -- people with integrity, a commitment to customer service and a passion for success -- and we teach them the packaging business through a comprehensive individualized training and placement program. Welch looks for life-long learners committed to making a difference in the world through their work.
