Independent Carton Group Welcomes American Carton

In 2009 Trent Tucker was hired as American Carton’s General Manager coming in with a long history in the print- ing and packaging world. The company has made great strides in the last four years receiving certifications in ISO 9001, Safe Quality Food (SQF), G7, GMI (Graphic Measures International), and SFI (Sustainable Forest Initiative) and receiving many outstanding customer audits. Over the past decade sales have grown significantly and have continued to grow through the pandemic. “We specialize on bringing what the big guys do for their big brand customers to our small brand customers, extreme value but with a personal touch” says Tucker, “We have grown our business in the pharmaceutical and medical supplies sectors as well as consumer packaging by being the best full-service supplier we can be to our customers.” “We have heard for many years of the outstanding val- ue ICG members gain from being part of that group” says Harris. “One of the key benefits we are looking for is back- up production support and the peace of mind that brings our customers – that we will always be able to supply them with the products and services they are accustomed to getting from us.” Also important to American Carton is the best-practice sharing that the ICG brings to their members. “We are all vibrant family-owned businesses that have similar values and goals,” says Harris. “Being a member of the ICG is one more way we can continue to grow our business and give us the ability to give more people jobs.”

The Independent Carton Group (ICG), an association of 19 independently owned and operated folding carton manu- facturers, has welcomed American Carton Company (ACC) of Mansfield, Texas, who was voted into the ICG during their virtual general meeting on November 12, 2020.

ACC was founded in 1992 by Joe Harris and a partner as part of Harris Packaging. Since 2006, the company has been run by Harris’ daughters Jana Harris and Jenise Har- ris Cox and is a certified women-owned business.
