Fibre Box Association Creates Thank You Video for Essential Workers
ITASCA, IL - A “thank you” is more than just a simple expression of gratitude. For the Fibre Box Association (FBA), it’s a core tenet of the association’s values. It recently released a video thank you to our industry’s essential workers, who have been working to keep transport packing flowing to product makers and suppliers on the frontlines.
In the video, FBA salutes the front-line employees of the corrugated industry. The association is grateful for the dedication and commitment of corrugated industry companies—and their employees and suppliers—for the work they are doing to keep the supply chain moving.
As FBA noted, corrugated cardboard boxes are a crucial element in supporting the American supply chain. The U.S. corrugated packaging industry alone is a $35.2 billion manufacturing sector, a press release explained. Across America, 1,183 box plants operate in nearly 1,000 cities and towns and provide employment to more than 100,000 individuals.
More than 95 percent of all goods consumed in North America are packaged and transported in corrugated packaging, with close to 40 percent being used to package food and beverages. It seems obvious that disruption in the availability of these goods can cause significant hardships to consumers across the country.
FBA explained that corrugated cardboard manufacturers are dedicated to continuing to operate box plants under the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to ensure products continue to flow to market.
