Company Overview

Photo of PCI HQWhile PCI has grown to be a global supplier, we still value our tradition as a family business. Founded in 1972 in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin by Joseph F. Irace, PCI relocated to St Louis, Missouri and began converting flexible packaging. In 1984 we began our rise as the leading producer of private label microwave popcorn packaging with capacity of 1 billion plus units per year. Later our line of concession packaging solidified PCI’s reputation as a leading supplier to cinemas, stadiums and arenas throughout the country.

In 2013, we expanded our capabilities with a full line of custom folded paperboard packaging and window film facilities serving quick serve restaurants, personal care companies, frozen and dry food manufacturers, theatre chains and a diverse set of associated industries.
