In 1924, Toby O. Bancroft, Sr. committed to manufacturing the highest quality multi-wall bags in the industry with 16 employees in a 4,800 square-foot, wood-frame structure that serviced a single market, carbon black.
In 1937, Bancroft Bag introduced the first Self-Opening Satchel bag to the industry, giving our customers substantial savings in shipping and damage product loss. This principal of providing innovative solutions to our customers with no sacrifice to quality became the cornerstone of the Company.
In ensuing years, our Company’s dedication to listening to our customers’ needs has resulted in a complete line of multi-wall, paper bags plus the development of some unique solutions such as the Webb Bag for better squared palletizing for stabilization and increased resistance to sifting and a stand-up feature for the consumer.
Today, Bancroft Bag, Inc.’s founding principals of Quality, Service and Innovation has sustained the family-owned business for over nine decades and, because of our relationship-driven focus, we are the largest, food-grade certified, multi-wall bag plant in the United States with over 400,000 square feet dedicated to serving a variety of markets with our full suite of multi-wall bag styles.
Personal service is the key to customer satisfaction and to ensure it, our in-the-field, regional, dedicated sales force is backed up by a group of the most experienced customer service representatives in the business.
Our Technical Department has a combined 80+ years of hands-on experience that provides our customers with the best-in-class, on-site customer support in the industry. Our Customer Service Representatives average over 20 years of industry expertise. Our Printing and Graphics Department artists average 25 years of providing award winning graphics solutions.
When customers are looking for the traditional way to conduct their business, Bancroft Bag delivers. We are the only bag manufacture that has its own dedicated trucking fleet. We are the only full-service bag manufacturer that is able to provide customers with a flexible schedule when customers sometimes need bags to avoid packing line downs or disruptions.
We are multi-generational, independent manufacturer committed to multi-wall paper bag industry and will remain so beyond our upcoming 100-year milestone. We are American owned and operated. Unlike many larger, integrated companies who highlight the latest plastic bag manufacturing, we are never distracted from our paper-based, bag consumers - some of who have remained with us since our founding.
Our employees are part of our family and we promote from within. We are proud that our average employee time at the Company stands at 20 years. This dedication to the people and the local community provides our customers with multi-decade, bag-manufacturing expertise. Unlike multi-national, corporate-driven giants, where people may come and go on a regular basis, Bancroft is a tightly-knit organization of master craftsmen who share in the Company’s success and longevity together.
As a 100% woman-owned family business and on behalf of the over 300 employees’ families represented here, we appreciate your continued support of Bancroft Bag and thank you for your business!
