OUR HISTORY

 
PremierPak-3735.jpg

In 1950, with a wheel barrow piled high with burlap sacks, Harry Harding started selling burlap in Kansas City’s River Market, and the origin of Columbia Packaging Group (CPG) was born. We’ve grown and expanded our product lines well beyond burlap bags, but we still remember our humble beginnings.  Harry’s grit, determination, and ingenuity are hallmarks of our company and instilled in every member of our team.

Throughout our history, Columbia Packaging Group has made an effort to acquire other family owned businesses with similar mindsets and complementing strengths.  In fact, you may have known us only as Columbia Burlap & Bag Co., Koch Bag & Supply, or Dallas Bag & Burlap.  That’s still us.  Our early growth was pioneered by David Radasky, the son-in-law that Harry hand-picked and trained to take his place.  With vision and a heart full of passion for the customers we serve and the products we provide, his leadership carried Columbia Packaging Group into new markets, product lines, and decades of growth.

In 2012, David’s son, Marc Radasky, joined the company.  As Columbia Packaging Group President & CEO, Marc has continued to focus on unifying the Columbia Packaging Group brand and growing the company into a fully integrated manufacturer and distributor.  In 2015, Koch Bag & Supply and Dallas Bag & Burlap merged into Columbia Burlap & Bag Co., Then, in 2017, to better identify our capabilities, we changed our name to Columbia Packaging Group.

In late 2017, CPG acquired Cambridge, OH based Packaging Materials, Inc.  This acquisition allows us to manufacture our own polyethylene films, bags, and sheets.  Then in mid 2018, CPG acquired Lindamar Industries, a Paso Robles, CA based manufacturing facility. This addition to our growing packaging family further expanded our capabilities and gave us the geographical reach to serve more customers on the West Coast.

Still headquartered in Kansas City, just a few miles from our birthplace in the River Market, our California, Missouri and Ohio locations allow us to support customers across the United States.  As a leader in packaging and protection solutions, our mission is simple: we deliver a quality product, on time.
