Under the new ownership, SMC will continue its operations as a corporation, now fully owned by Green Bay.

The company’s former vice-president and general manager Mark McNay will take on the role of president of SMC, reporting to Bryan Hollenbach, the executive vice-president of Green Bay.

Headquartered in Wisconsin, Green Bay operates a folding carton facility, corrugated container plants, recycled and virgin containerboard mills, and other facilities. 

SMC chair and CEO Kevin Ausburn said: “For over five decades, our employee-owners have diligently provided quality products in a timely manner to our customers.  

“Simultaneously, we have fostered a profitable and successful company deeply rooted in community values. As SMC Packaging Group expands beyond our founder’s vision, we are ready to embark on the next chapter by joining Green Bay Packaging. Their shared commitment to employee well-being and community pride aligns perfectly with our philosophy.”
