Sonoco has been a stable, growing business for more than 120 years. Our roots can be traced to the Southern Novelty Company, which was founded in South Carolina, U.S., in 1899.

Our first product was a cone-shaped paper yarn carrier used for winding and transporting yarn.  Since most of the textile cones of that day were wooden, paper cones were a novelty.  The Company soon became the leading producer of cones in the United States.

The Southern Novelty Company continued to diversity its product line and added new operations around the country.  In 1923, the Southern Novelty Company name was changed to Sonoco Products Company, or “Sonoco,” using the first two letters from each word of its original name.

Since then, Sonoco has continued growing, and is now a multi-billion, global business with four segments: Industrial, Consumer, Protective Solutions, and Display and Packaging.  To learn more about Sonoco today, visit the About Us page of our Corporate website.
