“World’s Greatest!” Television Show Selects Accurate Box Company to Showcase History and Capabilities
November 14, 2012 – Delray Beach, FL and Paterson, NJ – How2Media, the producers of the television show “World’s Greatest!…”, announced today that they have recently selected Accurate Box Company to be a part of the popular television series.
Accurate Box Company was founded in 1944 by Henry Hirsh. It started as a small folding carton company in Newark, New Jersey. Henry’s son, Charles Hirsh, took over the business in the 1960s and began the true growth of the company. Accurate Box grew as a folding carton manufacturer specializing in large format packaging.
“Accurate Box is a leading manufacturer of high-strength litho-laminated packaging, displays, and standees. They do things the right way, so that they are in fact the logical choice for anyone’s corrugated packaging needs, and they do so as a third-generation family business celebrating 69 years in business. We think their story will be meaningful and educational to our viewers” said Fordon Freeman, Executive Producer of the show.
Hirsh’s vision led to the marriage of graphics to corrugated (litho-lamination) in the 1970s as Accurate Box became one of the first companies in the United States to purchase an Asitrade, in-line corrugator/laminator. By the early 1980s, Accurate Box Company had outgrown its building and moved to its current 9-acre location in Paterson, New Jersey.
As part of the show, How2Media will be sending a film crew to spend time at the company’s 300,000 square foot, state-of-the-art Paterson, New Jersey facility. They will find out what the story behind the story is with this great and growing company, and to show the “World’s Greatest!…” viewers why Accurate Box Company was selected as the best in their category, and therefore, featured on the show.
“World’s Greatest!…” is a thirty-minute show dedicated to highlighting the world’s greatest companies, products, places, and people. Each show is a fast-paced tour around the world featuring behind-the-scenes footage, informative interviews, and exciting visuals. Watch the excerpt that features Accurate Box Company below.
