Graphic Packaging, formerly known as Graphic Packaging International, was founded in 1976 by Stanley P. Warren and Jacob E. “Jack” Yellen in Marietta, Georgia. The company was initially a manufacturer of paperboard and corrugated packaging. In the 1980s, Graphic Packaging began to expand its operations and by the early 1990s it was the largest manufacturer in the United States of folding carton packaging.
