Primary Packaging was founded in 1990 as an offshoot of the Stone Container company in New Philadelphia, Ohio. A small leased facility served as the initial building blocks for Primary Packaging with 4 employees, a single mono-layer extruder, a printing press and 2 bag machines. PPI initially served the fiberglass insulation industry and shortly after added cellulose insulation packaging for local manufactures.
Steady growth over the next 5 years prompted the need for a larger facility so a piece of property was purchased 12 miles north of the existing facility in the town of Bolivar, Ohio. In 1996 a 50,000 square foot building was erected on the newly purchased piece of land.
Today, Primary Packaging is a fully integrated manufacturer of film and bags and employs a workforce of 80-100 people.
PPI serves the industrial and retail market with high quality heavy duty packaging for demanding applications from the fertilizer, salt, sand, rock and fiberglaSs insulation markets.
