Colbert relocates HQ to Kenosha, WI

Colbert Packaging Corporation has confirmed it has completed the relocation of its corporate offices to Kenosha, Wisconsin. This move is in alignment with Colbert’s strategic plan to streamline operations and position itself for growth.

“Over the past few years, investments in new, more efficient equipment paved the way toward consolidating our flagship Lake Forest manufacturing operations into our Elkhart, Indiana and Kenosha, Wisconsin plants,” says John Lackner, President and COO, Colbert Packaging. “After that, it just made sense for home office operations to relocate. Now, with greater proximity to our Kenosha manufacturing operations, we’re more streamlined, plus the Kenosha location has ample room to build out as we grow.”

The new home office includes a ‘Memory Garden’ dedicated in memory of past employees. As a family-owned business, the decision to relocate the Lake Forest memory garden was a priority for CEO and founding daughter, Nancy McDougall. “We wouldn’t be here today without so many individuals who put their hearts and souls into each day’s work,” she said. “It’s important to recognize and remember their contributions to Colbert’s success.”

In response to escalating customer demand, equipment acquisitions have increased manufacturing capacity in both locations (Kenosha and Elkhart), along with quality assurance. Colbert recently announced having 100% vision inspection capabilities, enabling defect detection without affecting the production run, an important distinction for pharmaceutical and consumer paperboard packaging customers.
