Since our humble beginnings in 1958, BCI has grown tremendously, both in size and in service. This growth has never been more evident than within the past two decades. With great leadership and an even greater team of people, BCI has expanded our capabilities to offer more to our customers while building our reputation for always putting them first. The secret to our success is that we don’t just build boxes – we build relationships – with our customers, with each other, and with our communities.
That may seem like an odd quote for a corrugated packaging company, but hear us out. At BCI, we know that our people create the real value of any business. They’re the creators – the ones providing quality products and services. We’re proudly employee owned and have built a culture of trust where our team of over 850 employee-owners is given a license to lead, empowered to offer solutions and own the results.
In the past decade, many things have changed in the corrugated packaging industry. Sustainability has become a priority. Online shopping has significantly increased the demand for corrugated products. BCI had two choices to respond to these changes: adapt or keep up the status quo. We chose to not only adapt, but to evolve.
We acquired high-performing, high-quality facilities. We attracted the best talent to be employee-owners. And we continued to build on our ability to offer services others in our industry either won’t or can’t. When others say no, BCI says, “Absolutely, we’ll do it.” And we’ll do it better than anyone else.
BCI is committed to carrying our dedication to excellence well into the future. We’ll continue to focus on our people, products, customers, and communities. We’ll continue to build on what we’ve already created, evolving when needed, but never changing the philosophy that’s gotten us where we are today: Think like customers, act like owners.
“Many of my clients projects require traditional corrugated cartons, however, some projects require complicated solutions that demand ingenuity and engineering. These are the projects that have separated BCI – and in turn me – from the competition.”

“The new design is a success. Goal accomplished, as damage claims are pretty much non-existent since switching to this new pack.”
“Since moving from our previous box supplier our lead times have gone down and quality has gone up. When we have a time-sensitive project, our BCI sales rep is responsive and helps us make the impossible possible.”

“The India Sidekick Display produced by BCI is propelling Zippo into a new customer channel within the company’s growing footprint within the India market. I thoroughly enjoy working with BCI’s structural design department and hold a high level of trust in the design lab’s capability to deliver workable solutions in a timely fashion — and within Zippo’s design parameters and guidance.”

“The team at BCI went above and beyond. They made multiple trips to the factory and worked with engineering to get the packaging correct. Keith and the design team helped us every step of the way, from conception to the final product.”
Product Engineer, Woodstream
“Everyone I’ve worked and interacted with, from production to corporate executives, have been so genuine. I feel like the people I work with/for actually care about me as a person. When I interviewed, I was told BCI wants to hire “good people” and that’s been evident from the beginning.”
“BCI offers a balance of fast-paced culture with a friendly team atmosphere that makes it feel that we are all in it together.”
“Coming in to BCI, I had culture shock in a good way by their dedication to employee wellbeing and commitment to work/life balance. The advantages of working for an employee-owned company were immediately evident from the passion, commitment to quality and safety, all-around positive demeaner of the people working here, both veteran BCI employees and new employees just starting out in the BCI experience.”
“I’ve witnessed over the years BCI’s commitment to building and promoting talent from within and appreciate the path that commitment has helped set me on.”
“Every day I have the genuine opportunity and ability to make a positive impact for our customers, for our organization and for our planet. That means the world to me.”
“Over the last decade I have enjoyed working for an employee-owned company where everyone shares in the success of BCI. Throughout my journey BCI has encouraged me in a variety of different roles, allowing me to grow professionally while contributing to the success and culture of the company.”
