ANTIOCH – Fischer Paper Products, an Antioch company providing paper packaging to the food service industry since 1972, is celebrating the grand opening of its new headquarters and state-of-the-art manufacturing facility at 1301 Gregory Drive in Antioch.
The new 162,000-square-foot building merges Fischer’s two current locations into one facility that remains in Antioch, where the company was founded. As a thriving and growing third-generation company, Fischer is committed to having small company values with big company aspirations, according to a news release.
“Bringing together our entire business under one roof has been an important long-term goal for our company that will result in streamlined processes and a stronger team dynamic. To see it all come together as one cohesive unit has been much anticipated and truly moving,” said Joshua Fischer, president and owner of Fischer Paper Products. “The new products and technology that we have incorporated into the facility will not only benefit our clients but our employees. We look forward to seeing the positive effect that this new building will have on our business and the Antioch community.”
A family company with nearly 50 years of experience manufacturing and supplying high-quality food-safe paper packaging, Fischer Paper Products is seeking more than a dozen qualified individuals to join its team of 100-plus employees. The company’s expected growth will increase its workforce 10% each year for five to 10 years.
“We have appreciated the chance to work with Fischer Paper to launch this project,” Antioch Mayor Lawrence Hanson said. “It has been exciting to watch the new building take shape, knowing it will create cutting-edge space for more high-quality jobs right here in Antioch.”
Fischer also is dedicated to supporting local nonprofits, including the Northern Illinois Food Bank and Open Arms Mission.
