Who: Northeast Box Company

What: Boxes

Where: Ashtabula and PA

When: Founded 1978


Northeast Box Company offers local, custom-designed packaging that is completely biodegradable/recyclable. They serve customers in an area that includes Buffalo, greater Cleveland area, Canton and Youngstown, and Chief Financial Officer Craig Parker says that many area businesses keep their dollars local by getting their boxes from Northeast Box. “We’re competitive with just about anyone,” he says.

The company recycles everything, because there is a market for corrugated cardboard. “We offer a classic product,” Parker says, one that can be produced more quickly, and with higher quality ink thanks to technology advances. For those interested in employment opportunities, Northeast Box is always looking for dependable individuals ready for an active, fast-paced work environment. “We’re willing to train those who feel they are a good fit,” Parker says.
