During the Depression, the Murnane Companies, developed a special method of cutting square-edged, lint-free soap wraps for automatic wrapping machines. This technology was later applied to the confectionery industry and led to Joseph Murnane’s pioneering effort to supply wax coated chocolate board candy bar base cards for use on automatic wrapping machinery. An ongoing close connection between the confectionery industry and the Murnane Companies continues to this day.

Still today, Layers & U-Boards are an excellent way to provide stability for interior packaging. Recycled and virgin grades of paperboard with calipers ranging from .012 – .040 are readily available from our on going inventory. Flexographic printing, laminating and die cutting these components allows you to offer a value added look to your package.
