This year, Pollock celebrates the 100th year anniversary from the company’s founding in 1918 when Lawrence S. Pollock, only 26 at the time, organized the Pollock-Burt Paper Box Company.
By the time of its 50th anniversary in 1968, Pollock Paper was an established leader in the packaging industry, with offices and plants from coast to coast. Over the years, Pollock’s distribution and packaging operations have continued to grow, and the company added an online office supply portal in 2012 known as PollockDirect.com. The company has seen many changes in names and products over the last century, and in recognition of all of the various paper, packaging, equipment, sanitary maintenance and office supplies it now provides to its customers, it changed its moniker to simply Pollock, as it’s known today.
Lawrence S. Pollock, III, current President/CEO of Pollock, commented on this important milestone by saying, “We are so excited and proud to celebrate our 100th year in business, servicing and supplying our customer’s requirements. This means a lot to our family and our associates, as well as me, because of our rich history and a great foundation that was built over the years by serving our customers. I know our founder, and my grandfather, Lawrence Pollock, would be very proud to see that we have continued the tradition he began in 1918, and more importantly, are well positioned to take great care of our customers and family of associates for the next 100 years.”
As a kick-off to its year-long celebration, Pollock held its annual sales meeting on January 25-26, 2018, where it shared its expansive history and stories with its associates, old and new. Also, at this meeting, Lonnie, III announced a huge birthday party to take place September 29th to celebrate Pollock’s centennial, inviting every associate to come together and take part of this once-in-a-lifetime historic event, along with a few other special promotions throughout the year.
