Family Owned for Over 40 Years!


Manufacturing boxes has been the heart and soul of Cross Container for over 40 years.  We have enjoyed three generations of our family owned company focused on corrugated packaging and displays.  Holding true to the vision of our founder, Jerry Matlock Sr., we continue to offer the best service and quality in the market place.

Cross Container was founded in 1978 in Schaumburg, IL and has expanded many times throughout our history.  We now own and operate a 260,000 square foot facility situated on 35 acres of land in Carpentersville, IL.  This provides ample room for our full compliment of box making equipment and accommodates future expansion.


Our goal is to deliver results above and beyond what customers expect.  We accomplish this goal by maintaining our commitment to excellence in all that we do … from the expertise of our machine operators to the level of service offered by our sales and customer service support; from the front office to our drivers, we are always looking for ways to continually improve the customer experience.  We believe quality is a result of careful planning, execution and the desire to excel.
