About Welch Packaging, Detroit

box manufacturer in detroit

Packaging Specialties, Inc., based in the Detroit area, is a family-owned, Michigan-based business with a rich tradition of product innovation and developing expertise with a dedicated team. Our commitment to being an industry-leader by incorporating new technology and reliable delivery has made us a trusted resource to meet our customers’ needs on time and on budget. Our company was founded in 1963 by Frank and Clare Tabor. When Frank suddenly passed away in 1965, Clare took over, managing the daily operations as well as raising a family of seven children. At the time, PackSpec was the only woman-owned corrugated converting plant in the Detroit-area.


Manhattan Container Corp. was acquired in 1984, rounding out the manufacturing capabilities with more capacity, and making us a major player in the Detroit market. Over the years, several substantial acquisitions have kept our company on top of the packaging industry with state-of the-art equipment and space to continue to grow.


PackSpec became a member of the Welch Packaging Group in early 2018. This move greatly increases PackSpec and Welch Pacakging's geographical footprint along with their capabilities. Now able to service customers as far south as Tennessee and from Chicago, IL to Cleveland, OH, this growth has added the ability to handle graphic packaging and increased logistics support. Welch Packaging is dedicated to maintaining the service and quality you have come to depend upon.
