From Area Development Magazine:
“Anchor Packaging has a rich 58-year history protecting food, including moving its manufacturing operations to Northeast Arkansas communities over 35 years ago. I am proud to say we have never had a lay-off. Re-investing in the region comes naturally as we have outstanding employees, many second and third generation, coupled with an ever growing business focused on sustainable food packaging solutions.

“Anchor’s packaging is just one more way Arkansas touches lives all over the United States. […] Most Americans probably don’t know they take their take-out restaurant food home in a container made in the Natural State. Since 1987 […] the company has been a world-class member of our business community. Anchor’s decision to expand in Paragould gives us another opportunity to spread the news that Arkansas’s workforce is first-rate, our business climate is second to none, and Arkansas businesses make life better for millions of people.”AREA DEVELOPMENT MAGAZINE
