At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, food banks, shelters and other service organizations contacted the President Container Group (PCG), Middletown, New York, requesting corrugated containers for people in need to carry meals and store belongings. In response, PCG donated 20,000 containers “without a question asked,” said company Vice President Larry Grossbard.
Out of that need, the company has created “the PCG Cares Initiative” to continue helping wherever high-quality, clean and reliable corrugated containers are needed. With its offices in Moonachie, N.J., and its manufacturing center in Middletown, N.Y., the company will help communities in both states with its contributions of packaging, building partnerships such as the one it enjoys with the Center for Food Action in New Jersey.
PCG is reportedly one of the largest manufacturers of corrugated containers in North America, producing more than 2 billion square feet of corrugated products every year. The company fabricates its corrugated containers with renewable and recycled source materials when possible, which are manufactured, transported and recycled using renewable energy.
