The story of M. Jacob & Sons begins with Max Jacob, who immigrated to the United States in 1880. Full of youth and ambition, Max started a one-man bottle exchange business in 1885: the M. Jacob Company. Soon his fledgling company had developed a reputation for innovation and quality service. When Max’s sons entered the business, it was renamed to reflect the family tradition: M. Jacob & Sons.
Now five generations later the company is still family owned and operated. In the early 1980’s, M. Jacob & Sons established Sprayco, the company’s consumer products division. Sprayco specializes in spray bottles and travel products for the retail market. The company’s 2011 growth initiative was the acquisition of a New York based rigid packaging distributor, Packaging Consultants Group. The acquisition of Packaging Consultants Group, an M. Jacob & Sons Company, will enhance M. Jacob & Sons’ capabilities in the pharmaceutical and medical packaging arenas as well as expand its geographical presence into the greater New York and southern New England areas. M. Jacob & Sons has always made it a priority to be on the forefront of packaging innovation.
In the early years, it was one of the first companies in America to recycle bottles. When plastics became the popular material for packaging, M. Jacob & Sons was there to provide its customers with the newest and best technology. Today, M. Jacob & Sons understands the eco conscience world and explores greener packaging options to supply to its customers. By constantly evaluating the needs of its customers and end users, M. Jacob & Sons has stayed on the forefront of packaging innovation for over 125 years.
