Looking for History on American Corrugated Paper Co

Len asked:

My family was in the corrugated business (and still is) from the very early 1900’s in New York City. The name of the company was American Corrugated Paper Co., 515 west 26th Street, NY, NY.

Can you provide me with more information and where I can get more information about the company. I’m thinking one of the older industry trade organizations may be able to help if I knew who to contact.

I know this company. I served in the New York market area and there was always talk among the members of the former companies.

I have a few suggestions. One would be to contact Rick Etra at Norampac in Maspeth. There has been an Etra in the corrugated business since that time. Another local contact would be Gary Berkowitz at Island Container, and there is also Marvin Grossbard at President Container. You might also try Paperboard Packaging Magazine (packaging-online.com). They may have old files. Board Converting News (nvpublications.com) is headquartered in upper New Jersey may also be able to give you some direction.
