Volk Packaging Corporation, established in 1967 by Benjamin Volk (1910-1996) and his son, Kenneth, was the first tenant in the new Biddeford Industrial Park off Route One in Biddeford, Maine. Kenneth Volk retired in 2007. His brother, Douglas Volk, former CEO, retired at the end of 2018. Ken’s son, Derek, is now President and sole owner, of the 53 year old corrugated sheet plant. Derek’s wife, Amy, also works in the business. In the past 53 years the Volk family has worked hard to live up to the words of Ben Volk’s motto, “Our Customers are Our Bread and Butter.”
Volk Packaging also takes it role as corporate citizen very seriously donating over $100,000 to charity every year. Volk Packaging’s efforts are targeted heavily toward veteran issues.
Volk Packaging is also owner of Newcorr Packaging, a sheet feeder in Northborough, MA. Newcorr is one of the only sheet feeders on the east coast with 2 corrugators. This access to sheets allows Volk Packaging to provide what the big paper companies cannot, a consistent level of service throughout the year with no delays because the “big” customer is tying up the only machine.
