A Community-Driven Vision in the Packaging Industry

Valley Packaging’s story dates back to 1956 when visionary L.C. Smith, along with Al Briggs and parents of people with disabilities believing people with special needs and disadvantaged circumstances could lead more independent lives, established the company based on this concept and welcomed his very first customer.

Human Services in Support of our Community

Valley Packaging’s committed workforce is passionate about the company’s long-standing human services mission –

“To promote the dignity and worth of individuals who have disabilities or are disadvantaged and to assist them in developing their optimum level of social, vocational and economic independence in the community”
