Protective Packaging Inc. of Lugoff is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. To mark the company’s quarter of a century in the custom folding carton industry, Protective Packaging is celebrating with a variety of special activities in 2012, including an oyster roast, a golf tournament and other events throughout the year.

Incorporated in 1987 as a producer of custom folding cartons, the company has grown during the past 25 years into one of the leading manufacturers of folding cartons, according to President and CEO Tom Price. Price said the success of his business depends largely on the relationships he builds with his customers.

How does it feel to have been in business for 25 years?

“…the only thing that comes to mind is that the dream I had when I was the only person at Protective Packaging back in 1987 has turned out to be so much bigger than I ever imagined,” said Price. “I never had my sights on 25 years, but it does reflect an image of longevity, survival and ultimately success. This is still a great country where anyone can chase a dream through hard work and good fortune.”

He said the company is blessed to have a great team of associates who are dedicated to the advancement of this business.

“Protective Packaging still remains a thrilling experience full of challenges and opportunities,” said Price. “I can’t wait to reminisce the next 25 years.”
