US Box Factory is a family owned and operated business since 1980.
The Box factory was built in 1919 as the Crazy Mineral Bottling Company. The factory was used to extract minerals from water, package them, and send them out nationwide. These operations lasted until the 1930’s when the FDA made it difficult to package the minerals and the box factory diversified. In 1948, the factory was purchased by Pollock Paper Company, and in 1955, was acquired by St. Regis. St. Regis Paper Company had grown into one of the most diversified forest products and packaging companies with more than 30,000 employees worldwide. The company’s growth reflected in Texas where St. Regis operated manufacturing plants in Dallas, Garland, Houston, and Mineral Wells. St. Regis contributed to the Texas economy total more than $30 million annually taxes, supplies, and payrolls for more than 140 employees.
Valentine’s Day wouldn’t be the same without red heart-shaped boxes and candy. The Mineral Wells rigid box plant kept busy most of the year manufacturing candy boxes of all shapes and sizes for some of America’s major companies for chocolates. The gift boxes made by the Mineral Wells Box Factory for Neiman-Marcus of Dallas, Texas were honored with an award for “continuing excellence” in the annual competition of the National Paper Box Association. The same boxes received two awards in the same competition the prior 2 years, and it was the third consecutive year the Mineral Wells Box Factory had won honors in the contest. The rigid boxes for the celebrated Texas Department store were described by judges as “class-conscious” and were cited as “a positive statement, well accepted in the past and worth repeating”.
In 1980, the manufacturing company name was changed to Texas Packaging and the new owner Donald Wyss continued to produce rigid and folding carton boxes. Mr. Wyss was a general manager of St. Regis for 10 years before buying out the Mineral Wells factory. Texas Packaging went on to be one of the largest heart manufacturers in the United States for brands such as Hershey’s, Elmer’s Chocolates, and Ganong. Donald’s daughter and son-and-law Heidi and Albert Rincon began working for Texas Packaging in 1985. Heidi Rincon started as a factory manager and helped with daily accounting. Albert also started working in the factory learning to run machines and helping in the office with sales. In 2008, Heidi and Albert bought out Texas Packaging and the Box Factory was born. With 30 plus years of experience, Heidi and Albert continue to produce rigid and folding carton boxes nationwide.
Ours is a family owned company and operations and we take pride in servicing our customer needs of rigid boxes.
