New COO at Welch Packaging

Elkhart, IN-based Welch Packaging has confirmed the appointment of Brock Welch as Chief Operating Officer, effective immediately.

Welch’s tenure in the packaging industry spans over 12 years. In 2010 he landed an internship and began a career at Acme Corrugated, before accepting a full-time position with Welch Packaging in 2011. Since then, Welch has assumed a variety of roles and responsibilities from estimating and customer service to sales and management.

In 2014, Welch led the development of Elkhart’s graphics plant with the purchase of the Asitrade. In 2016, he assumed the General Manager position for the company’s first corrugator operation, a 110-inch Fosber. In 2019, he became the GM of the Elkhart box plant, and by 2021 Welch managed the box plant, corrugator, and graphic operations.

Scott Welch, CEO, Welch Packaging, commented, “Brock has demonstrated a successful and authentic leadership style in executing his prior responsibilities.  In this new role, he will bring the entrepreneurial spirit and customer focus which has been the hallmark of Welch Packaging for nearly 40 years.  This customer focus, coupled with the talent of our associates, enables us to provide the Ultimate Corrugated Experience for our local customer.”

This move solidifies an intention for Welch Packaging to remain family-owned and operated. Scott Welch will remain heavily involved in the business driving growth from a strategic perspective, while Brock Welch will focus on day-to-day operations.
