Joplin, Missouri

The story of AJM Packaging began in Detroit in 1918. Abram, Jack, and Morris’ family owned a neighborhood grocery store beneath their small apartment. The whole family pitched in to keep the store afloat, even the young boys who stocked the shelves, unloaded the trucks, and took out the garbage. The family remained in the food industry and remained committed to working together, driving trucks and distributing produce and beer. In 1957, Abram, Jack, and Morris founded AJM Packaging Corporation. Headquartered in a red brick building on Dix Avenue in Detroit, where we still manufacture goods today, they purchased their first bag and plate machines and began converting paper into paper products. In 1993, Abram’s son Robert (Bob) took over the family business as president. Bob continued to grow the business, expanding AJM’s geographic footprint and national presence. Today, AJM is still a family-owned and family-run business with over 3,000 employees. Over the last 60+ years, we have grown into a leading manufacturer of high quality branded and private label paper products, including paper plates, bowls, cups, and bags. We are proud to create manufacturing jobs here in the USA by operating our original Detroit manufacturing site, as well as an additional seven strategically located plants across the USA. All of AJM Packaging’s paper products are manufactured, printed, and packaged in the USA – when you buy AJM, you help us keep manufacturing jobs in our local communities. We remain committed to providing the reliable service and quality that has been important to AJM since the day Abram, Jack, and Morris started the business. We continue to reinvest in our company and our employees and strive to put the needs of our customers first, today, tomorrow and always.
