Company History

General Packaging Products started in 1970 when David Shafer and Charles Van Horn ventured away from their jobs working at a corrugated box company to forge their own future.  After securing funding, they broke ground and built the factory that is still GPP's home today.  About a year and a half after they opened, they brought on Robert Berg to be the 3rd partner. 

From its humble beginnings, General Packaging has grown considerably.  The original building has been added onto 3 times, providing for approximately 100,000 square feet of manufacturing space.  Although the original 3 partners have all passed away, the Shafer family is continuing on the tradition started over 45 years ago and has created a new path for GPP.
