Building on
a solid history

When Jack Mathes and his wife Bobbie founded Vanguard in 1975, the company sold poly bags with no intention of working in the corrugated industry. Over 35 years later, Vanguard has continued to expand into new areas in industrial packaging, POP displays, signage and retail packaging.

Vanguard Packaging is an independently-owned and operated manufacturer of point-of-purchase displays, signage, retail packaging and corrugated boxes. In addition to the corporate headquarters design and manufacturing facility at SubTropolis in Kansas City, Missouri, the company has offices in St. Louis, Missouri and Bentonville, Arkansas. Vanguard specializes in the creation of high-quality products through the use of sustainable business practices, and has become recognized as the most sustainable packaging company in North America.
