Menasha Packaging provides graphic consumer packaging, merchandising solutions, corrugated packaging, food packaging, shipping containers, material handling solutions, pack-out and fulfillment services.  The company boasts a network of design, sales service centers, corrugated and paperboard manufacturing plants, and fulfillment facilities located throughout the United States.

“The acquisition of PearceWellwood provides Menasha Packaging Company a foothold in Canada to better serve new and existing major consumer packaged goods customers located in the region with expertise in display design, manufacturing and fulfillment,” Jim Kotek, president and CEO of Menasha Corporation said.
