  • How to Establish and Sustain a Continuous Improvement Culture

    To many of those who have studied supply chain and the concepts pertaining to lean methodology, you probably view the layout of a warehouse or manufacturing center through a different set of lenses. You are able to visualize how inefficient processes are reducing output, ultimately leading to an uptick in money and time.

  • President Container Group Supporting Ukrainian Relief Organizations, Donating Corrugated Containers Through its “PCG Cares” Initiative

    MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. (April 26, 2022) – President Container Group’s “PCG Cares” initiative has provided thousands of corrugated containers to three Ukrainian relief organizations, as well as medical supplies to a fourth group.

    More than 4.3 million residents of Ukraine have fled their country due to the Russian invasion, making the exodus the largest European refugee crisis since World War II. Ukrainian relief organizations contacted President Container Group’s PCG Cares initiative, requesting corrugated containers to package supplies to benefit Ukrainian refugee families.

    PCG Cares

    The corrugated containers donated by PCG Cares are filled with food, hygiene products, pet food and backpacks. Medical supplies were sent to Poland, where the goal is to transport them across the border into Ukraine to assist those in need.

    “Our goal is to help each other, one box at a time,” President Container Group Vice President Larry Grossbard said. “We are all responsible for doing our part to serve the communities around us. By providing corrugated containers, we will provide one more necessary item to help aid the Ukrainian refugee crisis, or food pantries, shelters and other such organizations, helping them stretch their resources further and help more people in need.”

    “These humanitarian groups are providing crucial resources, assistance and support during what is an international crisis. If other organizations are still in need, we would love to help in any way that we can,” said Grossbard.

    To date, donations have been sent to:

    • Baranova 27, a Ukrainian Relief Fund, Fort Lee, N.J.
    • Ukrainian relief via Royal Albert’s Palace, Edison, N.J.
    • Plast Ukrainian Scouting Organization, New York City branch
    • Holy Trinity Ukrainian Catholic Church Relief Effort, Kerhonkson, N.Y.

    President Container Group’s generosity has been graciously acknowledged. “Plast Ukrainian Scouting Organization New York City branch gratefully acknowledges your contribution of 130 cartons for our Ukraine fundraiser,” said organization representative Natalie Danysh.

    President Container Group is one of the largest manufacturers of corrugated containers in North America, producing more than 2 billion square feet of corrugated products every year. PCG Cares reflects PCG’s deep concern for its communities and the greater good, also demonstrated by President Container Group’s sustainable practices. The company fabricates its corrugated containers with renewable and recycled source materials when possible, which are manufactured, transported and recycled using renewable energy.
