Lawrence Paper Company

We’ve been working on your packaging for more than 140 years.

From our earliest days selling protective paper wraps for whiskey bottles, to providing corrugated boxes to the burgeoning home canning market post-prohibition, through war and peace, boom times and busts, Lawrence Paper Company has been here to meet the needs of businesses around the Midwest and across the country.

First Paper Mill

West of the Mississippi

In 1882, Lawrence Paper Company built the first paper mill west of the Mississippi using local straw. Five years later, the mill began to use that paper and convert it into what became a breakthrough in the shipping and fulfillment industry – the corrugated cardboard box.
