Weber celebrates 90th anniversary

Weber Packaging Solutions has grown into a global company in its third generation, celebrating its 90th anniversary in 2022

What started as a small, family-owned handprinter company in Chicago, Weber Packaging Solutions has grown into a global company in its third generation, celebrating its 90th anniversary in 2022.

Initially founded in 1932 as Weber Addressing Machine Company by Joseph Weber, Sr., who introduced the company’s first handprinter, the Tag-O-Graph, for directly marking cartons. 

By the 1940s, Weber introduced an Addressing Machine that allowed direct, mechanical printing on envelopes and changed its name to Weber Marking Systems. Weber has made significant technological advances in labeling and printing every decade since, moving from manual to automated, digital technologies. 

In line with these advances, Weber changed its name to Weber Packaging Solutions in 2011. That same year, it introduced Model 4300 Pro-Apply, an economical line of printer-applicators, and installed its first Mark-Andy P7 label press, which handles the most complex print applications. 

The company is still family-owned and operated by the Weber family, with some employees working with the company for over four decades. Since Joseph Weber, Jr. has retired from daily operations, his son, Doug Weber, is the president and CEO. 

‘To celebrate the 90th anniversary of Weber is the experience of a lifetime,’ said Doug Weber. ‘Weber’s legacy has been built on the solid foundation that my grandfather laid 90 years ago, and to see it flourish has been nothing short of incredible.

‘We are humbled to have reached this momentous milestone, and we look forward to helping companies make their mark and customers identify their world for many generations to come.’
