About Us

The Single Largest Multiwall Plant in the United States

Our History

In 1924 Toby O. Bancroft, Sr. committed to manufacturing the highest quality multiwall 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 to the industry, giving our customers substantial savings in shipping and damage costs.  This principal of providing customers better value with no sacrifice to quality quickly 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 principles 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, multiwall bag plant in the United States with over 400,000 square feet dedicated to serving a variety of markets with our full suite of multiwall bag styles.  

We are relationship driven

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 class of technical support in the industry. Our customer service representative average over 20 years of industry expertise. Our printing and graphics department 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 manufacturer 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.

Same family, Same dedication

There is no other bag maker that can replicate our history in the world. 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. For example, every one of our plant managers over our history began with the Company at an early age. 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 community 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 450 employees’ families represented here, we thank you for your continued support of Bancroft Bag.
