GBP is Considered A Critical Manufacturer

Today Wisconsin’s governor issued an executive order shutting down all non-essential businesses. This follows similar orders affecting other states and municipalities.

We want you to know that Green Bay Packaging is considered to be a Critical Manufacturer and will continue to operate. This applies to all our United States coating and slitting locations.

Green Bay Packaging’s products are essential parts of the manufacturing and distribution supply chains for food, healthcare, transportation, and other industries identified by the Department of Homeland Security as “Critical Infrastructure Industries.”

At Green Bay Packaging we take our role as a vital component of these supply chains seriously, and we will carry on our work on behalf of our customers, and the country, during this challenging time.

TIP Time Change

As we all adapt to the new requirements necessary for safety as a result of the Covid-19 virus, some of our employees are now working from home. Unfortunately, this is resulting in increased lead times for order entry. To address this, starting Monday, March 23, the cut-off time to order from our TIP program will move to 3:00 PM. (Time based on the location from which the shipment originates.)

Although we have made changes in how we are working, we are not changing why we are working – to provide the label materials you need to keep your presses running and your customers satisfied.

Your customer service representative can be reached as usual. Their regular phone numbers are forwarded to their homes, and they have access to their email and usual computer tools. Our manufacturing operations are working hard to fill your orders without interruption.

We regret any inconvenience this order cut-off time change may cause. We value the relationship that we have built with you. And we look forward to continuing to work together, through this unprecedented time, and beyond.
