Sustainable Packaging Expands in Findlay
28 July 2021
PaperTech, a leading manufacturer of sustainable paperboard packaging products to the food and consumer products industries, is expanding due to strong customer demand driven by broader sustainability trends in the consumer goods packaging industry. As a result, the PaperTech leadership team said they expect to hire at least 25 - 30 new employees in production and facility operations. To attract the best local candidates, PaperTech offers competitive and attractive compensation and benefits to all its employees.
With products made of 90% or greater renewable sustainable materials, PaperTech is committed to environmental stewardship and is well positioned to benefit from the accelerating shift away from single-use plastics. As a growing business, the company takes pride in its core values and people-centric culture, explained CEO Jim Morgan.
“During the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses locally, regionally and nationally either had to close their doors or cut employee hours. PaperTech stayed open throughout the pandemic, and we are proud of our team’s commitment, particularly during a difficult time. The company was able to retain all essential positions, even adding new ones during the past few months.”
In conjunction with a recent change in ownership, Morgan said the company has enhanced its employee compensation and benefits programs, including:
- Starting entry-level wages of $15-16 per hour (depending on skill level)
- Comprehensive, affordable medical benefits
- 401(k) offering with eligibility for company match
- Personal time off
- Paid breaks
- $500 sign-on bonus
At the same time the company is creating local jobs, PaperTech is also investing millions of dollars in facility improvements, digital transformation, and additional production equipment to expand capacity for growth.
“The PaperTech team is a hardworking group, through this past year and the past 20 years. We want all current and future employees to know that we appreciate all the dedication and service that they bring to work every day. PaperTech wouldn’t be where we are today without the commitment of our team,” Morgan added.
