ABOX Packaging Relocates Headquarters to Forney

FORNEY, TX – The City of Forney is proud to announce that the ABOX Packaging Company will soon be relocating its headquarters to Forney. ABOX Packaging recently acquired the Forney Sports Center and hope to begin operations from the 110,000-square-foot beginning in January.

“We are extremely pleased ABOX chose Forney, Texas to relocate its headquarters,” said Forney Economic Development Director Warren Ketteman. “The interest in our community continues to grow as companies discover what Forney is about, with its close proximity to two major interstates, highly-educated workforce and award-winning schools, all within a twenty-minute drive from Dallas.”

Employing over 140 certified professionals, ABOX is a full-service packaging company that provides many of the folding cartons, window packaging and beverage carriers, for products that you use almost every day. For more information about ABOX Packaging, please visit www.aboxpackaging.com.
