During the past dozen years, our industry has seen seven Fortune 500 integrated multiwall manufacturers leave the bag business. Yet throughout these unsettled times, Bancroft Bag has maintained continuous growth and today operates the single largest diversified multiwall plant in the United States. Why has Bancroft succeeded where other, larger companies have failed?
When T. O. Bancroft, Sr., established Bancroft Bag, Inc., in 1924, there were just 16 employees serving a single market, carbon black. In 1937, Bancroft introduced the first SOS bags to that industry, giving our customers substantial savings in shipping and damage costs - and this principle of giving the customer better value quickly became the cornerstone of the company. In ensuing years, our company's dedication to customer needs has resulted in a complete line of conventional multiwall bags, plus the development of some unique solutions such as the WEBB Bag for better palletizing and increased resistance to sifting.
Today, Bancroft continues to develop new and better bag packaging solutions for a host of markets - from petfood to USDA food exports to underdeveloped countries; from fertilizers to rare and costly minerals and chemicals. Please see technical support.
Bancroft Bag is solely committed to the manufacturing of high quality multiwall bags. Unlike integrated bag companies, Bancroft is not limited in material selection. Instead, we work closely with our customers and qualified suppliers to provide materials best suited to performance. We operate one of the most sophisticated plants in the multiwall bag industry, including superior printing on state-of-the-art flexo presses; in-house ink plant, plate making and a computerized color matching system.
And Bancroft is here to stay - same ownership, same dedication for over 90 years. In the coming years, you can count on Bancroft to continue providing the innovative solutions, consistent quality and personal service that has set us apart.
We sincerely thank those of you who have supported our efforts over these many decades. To those we have yet to serve, we welcome the opportunity to share our expertise.
