A little bit about us
By Sue and Kelly
Our idea of a woman-owned paper and packaging company was born in the summer of 1994. We had both been in this business for several years working for other companies. With much encouragement and moral support from our family and friends, we decided to try our hand at being business owners.
Pacific Northwest Paper & Packaging, Inc. officially opened its doors in the spring of 1995. We rented a small inexpensive bay, put in a phone and computer, borrowed a small pickup truck with a canopy, and we were IN BUSINESS! We worked long hours wearing many hats, as our first employee wasn’t hired until the end of 1996. In 1997 we purchased a used step van for deliveries and moved into the building we now occupy.
Our philosophies of “Never Say Never” and “All Good Things Take Time” have been an important factor in our steady growth. They have enabled us to expand our product offerings as well as our geographical territory. We pride ourselves on servicing every customer as if they were our “first”!
Foremost, we thank our loyal customers for their never-ending support, the key to our success. We are committed to meeting our customers’ needs, exceeding their expectations and achieving our goal of being the preferred paper and packaging supplier in our marketplace.
