Who We Are
Allpak, located in Renton, Washington, has been in business since 1962, and is one of the oldest corrugated manufacturers in the Northwest. Hans Koch bought the company from the previous owners in 1985, and has expanded the business by adding a second manufacturing location in Spokane, Washington. The Koch family still owns the companies, and his son Ralph Koch is the current president and CEO, with Hans as the Chairman.
We currently have 174 workers in both facilities.
Allpak has provided packaging for many of the major companies in the Northwest directly and indirectly, including software companies, fitness equipment manufacturers, agriculture providers, and manufacturing companies. With some of these businesses, Allpak was on the ground floor when they launched and grew with them as well.

Corrugated is our main raw material. All scrap from die-cutting operations is captured and compacted into bales. Other miscellaneous corrugated and paper waste is also collected and picked up by a reputable recycling service. Plastic items such as banding straps, shrink-wrap, containers and bottles are also collected, and a recycling clerk monitors to ensure all recycling is gathered appropriately and is picked up by the recycling service. Foam scraps are placed in a dedicated dumpster managed by a specialized recycler. Allpak also recycles wood waste from pallet refurbishing activities, metal waste from facility maintenance activities, and all electronic waste.
