Starting in 1919
Way back in 1919, Emerson Carey and James Dick started the Hutchinson Bag Company manufacturing bags for salt.
In 1991, the name of the company changed to Hubco Inc. Hubco is the name of our popular sample bags used in the oil industry.
Growth through Acquisitions
Hubco has grown through acquisitions of other bag companies and product lines such as flour, sample bags for oil, natural gas and gold, and food retail packaging.
Still in its same location, Hubco started with five employees and now employs 54 people (9 in the office and 45 in the plant). Hubco credits its stability and ongoing success to its loyal employees. One such female employee has been with the company for 50 years! People actually enjoy coming to work and feel like they’re making a contribution to the growth of the company; there is very little turnover.
As for the future, Hubco continues to look for more business in niche fields as well as keeping and cultivating its existing business. With other bag companies going out of business or only selling imported bags, production of American-made products, service time, customer service, and small orders are a few of the ways that Hubco can maintain and thrive in the years to come.
