About Nelson Container

Your Reliable Corrugated Packaging Supplier

Nelson Container is a privately held sheet plant and package design company founded by Jim and Pat Nelson in the spring of 1962. Back then, the company filled a need for a high-quality, full-service corrugated packaging company handling custom orders and specialty items. We continue to serve that market today on an enhanced level.

Using innovative methods and 50 years of experience in the corrugated (not cardboard) box and packaging industry in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, we proudly deliver strategic packaging programs that provide the highest-quality product protection across package engineering, design, and testing spectra.

Foam Packaging Solutions

Protecting against product defects due to shipping is easy with foam packaging inserts. Use soft, hill and valley-cut foam inserts to protect your shipments from harm. Adding bulk packaging inserts to your single-wall, double-wall, or triple-wall corrugated boxes is the best thing you can do for your products. The specific cutouts within the foam supports are custom designed to fit your product safely and securely. 

Triple Wall Corrugated Packaging

Built with strength and cushioning properties, triple wall corrugated boxes are built to hold and last. No matter what heavy or bulky products you have to ship, triple-walled packaging can manage. When paired with foam packaging inserts and other protection solutions, the only boxes you'll need are triple wall corrugated. Large, hefty boxes are perfect for medical equipment, machinery parts, computers and monitors, canned food, glass products and more. Call today to order for all your bulk shipping and storing needs.
