Fischer Paper Products Celebrates 50th Anniversary

Antioch, IL – Fischer Paper Products, an Antioch-based paper packaging manufacturer serving the foodservice industry, is proud to announce 50 years in business. On the anniversary of Fischer’s incorporation, February 9th, the company will mark the day of their founding with a small celebration for their employees.


Having spent all 50 years in Antioch, the company is honored to be an integral part of the community for 3 generations. “This anniversary is about celebrating our past and building our future together,” says Josh Fischer, President and Owner of Fischer Paper Products. “Since 1972, Fischer has been known for caring about the little things, and our commitment to exceptional service and products is unmatched. We’re dedicated to making the next 50 years even better and to continue growing so we can help our employees, community, and our customers even further.”


Built on a solid foundation, Fischer started as a small family company with just 3 employees and 2 production lines. Now employing 130 people and running 20 lines, Fischer is looking forward to celebrating their 50th Golden Anniversary throughout 2022 and marking past successes with the people and partners who’ve helped them along the way.  Fischer has produced 50 billion bags in 50 years, grown from a local bag company to a nationwide foodservice packaging supplier for brands like Panda Express and Culver’s, and consolidated their business into a single corporate headquarters.


Looking to the future, Fischer recently built a 175,000 square foot building in Antioch and is excited to be making additional investments in technology, people, and process improvements. The company will also focus on environmental sustainability, engaging with the community, and aligning with the charitable causes that are important to the Fischer brand and represent its values.
