On Wednesday April 22nd, 2015 CMHDS members toured the Great Little Box Company facility on Mitchell Island. Attendees got a first-hand look at how one of the logistics industry’s main staples – boxes – are produced as they followed the production line from raw material to finished product.
One of BC’s great business success stories, Great Little Box Company Ltd. (GLBC) began operations in 1982 with a 5,000 square foot plant in Burnaby and only three employees. Today they are headquartered in a 250,000 sq.ft. facility on Mitchell Island and have branches in Victoria, Kelowna & Everett, Washington.
GLBC offers customers a one-stop shop for all their packaging and shipping needs, designing and manufacturing custom and stock corrugated boxes, folding carton boxes and displays. In addition, they produce foam protective packaging, labels and distribute a full range of shipping and moving supplies.
