Founders Herb and Ruth Jablonka

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 sons, Glen and Roy.

Over time, Glenroy developed a well-known reputation in the flexible packaging industry for providing material that was consistently dependable and high in quality. Positive word-of-mouth led to a loyal following of customers and steady growth.

Today, Glenroy has more than 150 employees and provides high-quality flexible packaging to world-class companies in a variety of industries. Rich Buss is the company’s CEO.

Glenroy is still a family-owned company, making it unique in an industry now characterized by mergers and massive corporations. Although the flexible packaging industry has changed dramatically since Herb, Ruth, and Roy opened Glenroy’s doors in 1965, the company’s mission of providing the highest quality of flexible packaging remains the same.

Glenroy’s high quality and exceptional service has resulted in a significant number of supplier awards and flexible packaging awards:
