BUFFALO, NY — Chudy Paper, a leading provider of industrial packaging, foodservice and facilities maintenance solutions, will be celebrating 100 years in business throughout 2013, according to a press release.
"It's hard to imagine that what started out as a one-man operation serving businesses along Broadway and Lombard in the early 1900s would turn into the organization we are today. It truly is a shining example of the American Dream coming to life," said Frank Michalski, chief executive officer (CEO) of Chudy Paper.
Chudy Paper began when Max Chudy, a first-generation immigrant from Poland, recognized an opportunity to supply paper products and packaging twine to the bustling meat markets of the early twentieth century, the release stated.
According to the release, from there, the company quickly grew — adapting and expanding into the burgeoning supermarket industry where, at one point, they became one of the top paper bag suppliers in the entire country.
As the business was passed down over the years from one generation to the next, a constant that has remained at the company’s core is Chudy's willingness to exceed customer expectations and their longstanding commitment to innovation, the release noted.
