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.”
