Home » About


Midwest Box Company started in 1964 as a short-run supplier and has grown to become Cleveland’s oldest and largest sheet plant. Our combination of machinery, multiple printer/slotters, high-speed flexofolder gluer, 110” capacity rotary printer die cutter, joiners and other box-making equipment enables us to produce both long and short run custom orders in one location.  Being centrally located on the near west side of Cleveland ensures on-time delivery throughout Northeast Ohio.


Most of our employees have spent the majority of their professional lives in the packaging industry. Many of them have been with Midwest for 30 years or more. Marvin Hecht founded Midwest Box Company in 1964. The company, still family owned, is now owned and operated by his daughter, Susan Hecht Remer.  Beyond our CSB and FBE Certifications, Midwest Box Company is actively seeking certification in all aspects of government contracting, both local and federal.

Going Green

Our Simply Green Program offers a wide variety of 100% recyclable corrugated options. We strive to supply our customers with environmentally responsible solutions that comply with their performance requirements.

Warehousing Program

Many of our customers need custom sizes kept in stock. This warehouse inventory, or “hold for release” (just in time) program has become an integral part of our business. To cater for this and future growth, we have expanded our manufacturing facility to over 150,000 square feet.

Looking Ahead

Our membership in the Institute Of Packaging Professionals (IOPP) ensures Midwest Box Company’s ability to have the most current expertise and knowledge in all aspects of packaging. Terms like “edge crush”, “United Nations Certification”, F-Flute, Litholaminated for point of sales visibility, ISO and many others were unheard of until recently. That’s why it’s so important to partner with an established company that has the committed approach towards providing the latest technologies available and the requirements needed to exceed the expectations of today’s often complex and dynamic world of packaging.
