Founded in 1932, Paper Products Company of Cincinnati provides quality paperboard packaging for the bakery, deli, supermarket, food service, convenience store, fast food, catering, and manufacturing industries.

At age 25, Omer “Oakie” Smith started what ultimately become Paper Products Company in the basement of his parents’ house.  He “handmade” white lined corrugated cake circles for the bakers in Cincinnati by using his mom’s flour and water to make the paste to glue white shelf paper to brown corrugated board.  Starting with a working capital of $100 and surviving the Great Depression, Paper Products Company is today a third-generation family-owned company. 

Today we are blessed with a group of loyal employees, excellent suppliers and committed to serving the baking and food service industry with the most innovative and highest quality packaging products and services.
