Our Business ...

Ingersoll Paper Box began in 1922 as Ingersoll Cone and Paper Box and has remained in our family for over four generations, and almost a 100 years. We made ice cream cones and the cones needed boxes and that's how we got into the carton business.  We've been told that during the Depression our company handed the broken cones to people in our community, which was a real treat when money, food and jobs were scarce.  

As much as business has changed, the demands of 1922 today are still the same.  Customers want innovative, high quality boxes delivered on time.  Back then a rush order was a rush order, just as it is today, and being first to market is still paramount. 

We have built the company over the past century on our commitment to continuous improvement, excellent customer service, innovation and cartons of the highest quality. These commitments continue to drive our company’s future. We are continuously investing in state of the art equipment which sets us apart from our competition. We have built our reputation as a trusted carton supplier through the success of our customers.  We know, just as they did in 1922, that our customer is depending on us.

With a dedicated group of employees, cutting edge technology and commitment to excellence in everything we do, a century later Ingersoll Paper Box is thriving in the paperboard industry providing packaging solutions in every industry for customers from start-ups to established leading brands.

We look forward to meeting you very soon,

Sarah Skinner and the Staff of Ingersoll Paper Box


 Ingersoll Paper Box History and Company Milestones.


Ingersoll Paper Box started as Ingersoll Cone and Paper, the company made ice cream cones and the cones needed boxes. Partner and general manager, Robert Skinner considered everybody to be family – he trusted his employees and they trusted him. It was an unusual but successful management style back then and over the years, that level of trust grew to embrace suppliers and customers. The ice cream cone operations were eventually sold and the company name changed to Ingersoll Paper Box Co. Limited.



Ronald Skinner, the second generation to manage Ingersoll Paper Box, made what would prove to be an important sales call to a new Stratford, Ontario plant that was producing Fram filters for the Canadian market. He made a sale and worked with his customer to reduce costs on Fram cartons. IPB continued to serve this client for 55 years building a strong working relationship until production moved to the USA.



David Skinner, the third generation entered the business. In his time as President we have seen tremendous expansion at Ingersoll Paper Box. Expanding the building structure, continuing to hire staff whom were trained carefully for their respective jobs and substantially investing in emerging new technologies to ensure quality and speed in the production of cartons.



The nineties marked the entry of fourth generation of the Skinner family into the business. In 1994 Sarah Skinner came onboard with our sales, marketing and management teams and building a solid working knowledge of every aspect of the business, taking over as President in 2016. In 1997 John Skinner joined and currently leads our innovative Structural Design Department.  In the 1990’s we introduced our first formal Quality Management system and we drastically expanded our manufacturing facilities and offices we also made a number of significant investments in the newest technology and equipment.
