Weber Packaging Solutions celebrates its 90th anniversary

What started as a small, family-owned handheld printer business in Chicago, Weber Packaging Solutions is now a global company in its third generation. This year, the company celebrates the milestone of its 90th anniversary.

Originally founded in 1932 as the Weber Addressing Machine Company by Joseph Weber, Sr., who introduced the company’s first manual printer, the Tag-O-Graph, for directly marking cartons. In the 1940s, Weber introduced an addressing machine that allowed direct mechanical printing on envelopes and changed its name to Weber Marking Systems. Every decade since, Weber has made significant technological advancements in labeling and printing, moving from manual to automated digital solutions. In line with these advancements, Weber changed its name to Weber Packaging Solutions in 2011. That same year, Weber introduced its Model 4300 Pro-Apply, an economical line of printer-applicators, and installed its first Mark label press. Andy P7, which handles the most complex printing applications.

Today, the company is still family owned and operated by the Weber family, with some employees working with the company for over four decades. Since Joseph Weber, Jr. retired from day-to-day operations, his son, Doug Weber, has served as President and CEO.

“Celebrating Weber’s 90th birthday is the experience of a lifetime,” says Doug Weber. “Weber’s legacy was built on the strong foundation my grandfather laid 90 years ago, and watching it thrive has been nothing short of amazing.”

Weber is constantly striving to provide its customers with the latest and most innovative equipment. For the future of labeling, which is rapidly changing to meet consumer needs and demands, Weber is committed to providing well-designed products that last for years.

“We are honored to have reached this important milestone,” added Weber. “And we look forward to helping businesses leave their mark and customers identify their world for many generations to come.”
