Koch has served the flexible-packaging industry for 37 years. During his tenor with American Packaging, he has progressed from Press Operator to his current position as Executive Vice President. “Jeff is a proven leader
and will be instrumental in the sustained growth, the motivation of people, and the strategic thinking required
for continued success of both our customers and our business” says Peter Schottland.
Koch adds, “American Packaging is a very diversified company serving many markets. With aspirations of doubling in size over the next decade, the owners are committed to investing in the latest technologies to arm our team members with the best equipment available today. I look forward to working closely with APC’s Sales, Technical, Operations and Executive Team to insure these growth goals are being met."
Since 1902 American Packaging Corp. has been owned by only two families, the Kardon’s and the Schottland’s. “Jeff exemplifies what can happen to an individual who makes an unfaltering commitment to a company that appreciates such effort. Jeff has earned his new post and with the entire organization’s support, will continue APC on it’s remarkable path,” says Steve Schottland.
In conjunction with the executive transitions, the Board of Directors have approved the move of the company’s
corporate headquarters from Rochester, NY, to Columbus, WI. The move of headquarters to Wisconsin will bring the Executive Team closer to the firm's largest operations and Packaging Innovation Center. The
two manufacturing plants in New York are unaffected by the move.
