Clinton company named Small Business of the Week

U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, this week announced her Small Business of the Week – Big River Packaging of Clinton, Iowa.

Big River, located at 1905 Lincoln Way, is often referred to within the company and community as “The Box Shop.”

The company makes various packaging products for its customers. Some of those jobs include designing and making stock paperboard packaging including boxes; bakery cartons; cupcake, cake and cookie boxes; and much more. The company makes about 450 different packaging products. Last year, the company added about 33,000 square feet to its business building.

Throughout this Congress, Sen. Ernst plans to recognize a small business in every one of Iowa’s 99 counties.

“Iowa small business owners strengthen our communities by serving as key job creators,
developing and retaining workforce talent in our state. I am proud to recognize the growth and success of Big River Packaging for their commitment to their employees, high-quality products, and top-notch customer service,” she said in a release.

Co-founders John Huling and Bob Simpson started Big River Packaging in 2005 with the idea of utilizing the dedicated, local talent in Clinton to create high-quality boxes. The dedicated team provides quality customer service to a unique clientele with over 120,000 domestic and international customers in the packaging industry.
