In the summer of 1965, Herb, Ruth, and Roy Jablonka founded Glenroy, Inc. with a mission of providing the highest quality of flexible packaging in the industry. The company was named after Herb and Ruth’s two sons, Glen and Roy.
Over time, Glenroy developed a reputation for providing flexible packaging material that was consistently dependable and high in quality. Positive word-of-mouth led to a loyal following of customers and steady growth.

“The world is a very different place than it was the summer of 1965 when Dad, Mom, and I opened the doors of our first facility. What hasn’t changed is the drive to always make a difference for our customers.”Co-Founder – Roy Jablonka
Today, Glenroy is proud to remain a family-owned company, making it unique in an industry now characterized by mergers and massive corporations. Now under the third generation of family ownership, Glenroy continues to grow with its customers around the globe. With approximately 200 employees and four facilities, the company provides high-quality flexible packaging to well-known brands in a variety of industries.
Although the flexible packaging industry has changed dramatically since Herb, Ruth, and Roy opened Glenroy’s doors in 1965, the company’s mission remains the same.

In 2015, Glenroy acquired the pouch converting operations of PF Flexibles—formerly known as Pouch Converting Technologies Inc. or PCTI. This acquisition provided Glenroy Inc. with a wide range of pouch converting equipment, and allows Glenroy to now offer some of the most extensive in-house premade pouch capabilities in the industry. This pouch converting equipment has produced award-winning stand-up pouches.
“With stand-up pouch usage continually increasing, the acquisition of PF Flexibles, combined with Glenroy’s 50 years of experience in flexible packaging, allows us to provide top-quality custom-engineered pouches. This supports our mission of providing the highest level of service to our customers.”President & CEO – Rich Buss
In 2013, Glenroy produced the first stand-up oil pouch in the U.S. power sports industry.
Glenroy’s high quality and exceptional service have resulted in over 90 flexible packaging awards.
