2021 marked J.L. Clark's 117th anniversary, and we continue to leverage our packaging expertise to help customers build brands into household names. While much has changed since 1904, J.L. Clark's dedication to you, the customer, has not. We continue to provide the same outstanding service and quality our customers have come to expect, while maintaining a relentless pursuit of innovation in package design.

J.L. Clark continues to invest in the latest technology. We've recently added a new 6-color printing press, electric injection molding presses, state-of-the-art vision systems, improved rapid prototyping, and high-speed fabrication capabilities.

Sustainability continues to be a core commitment at J.L. Clark. In 2012, we became the first North American Metal Lithographer to receive SGP (Sustainable Green Printing) Partnership Certification. J.L. Clark has also been recognized as the recipient of the Illinois Governor's Sustainability Award in 2011, 2013, 2014 and 2015.
