Who is Northwest Paper Box? 

Northwest Paper Box is a leading manufacturer of the highest quality set-up boxes and custom corrugated available.  More than this, we offer a full line of packaging products and services, on time, at competitive or better prices, in an environment that supports employee growth and development. A staple of the Pacific Northwest business community, we’ve provided innovative products and unsurpassed customer service for nearly 60 years.

In 1946, Marvin “Van” Van Allen told his future wife, Betty, that someday he would own his own paper box plant.  Their dream was realized in 1953. Now what began with a ’31 truck— and savvy acquisitions of equipment and facilities — has become a leading manufacturer of the highest quality set-up boxes and custom corrugated available in the market: Northwest Paper Box.

Today, over 60 years later, Northwest Paper Box (NWPB) boasts two facilities with nearly 100,000 square feet of manufacturing, warehousing, packaging, fulfillment and office space. The company is managed and operated by Van and Betty Van Allen’s three sons– Brad, Rod and John– who run the business with the same values their parents stood by.  A true single-source packaging supplier, NWPB is proud to be the only company in Oregon that:

  • manufactures both corrugated boxes and set-up boxes.
  • offers both manufacturing of packaging and contract packaging.
  • provides all the above plus distribution of packaging supplies.

Starting Janurary 1st 2017, NWPB  we are proud to announce the purchase of all the assets of Universal Paper Box, a rigid setup box manufacturer, in Seattle, WA. We will be able to integrate their equipment, customers, and some of their employees into our business.

In short, Northwest Paper Box combines the capabilities of a larger packaging supplier with the integrity and commitment to service and quality of a long-time, family-owned business.
