This is Derek Miller, Speaking on Business. Since 1914, Utah PaperBox has been a staple in the Salt Lake Valley. Over the years, this packaging factory has learned how to provide its services, from design, prepress and printing to die cutting, stamping and finishing, in an eco-friendlier way. CEO Steve Keyser tells us more.


At Utah PaperBox, our mission is to be a valuable resource for our customers through creative and innovative packaging and also a responsible steward of our environment, community and employees.

We pride ourselves on being a small business that can provide high-quality, eye-catching custom packaging for both small local start-ups and large national brands, such as Smith Optics and Casper Ice Cream. What’s more, we have committed to doing so sustainably.

At Utah PaperBox, sustainability is one of our six core values. We have worked hard to become a sustainable and eco-friendly company and are proud to be a leader in our industry for environmental causes.

We source from sustainable forests and divert 90 percent of our waste from landfills. Our headquarters is LEED Gold-certified, and 20 percent of our power comes from solar energy. Not only that, but our first electric semi-truck is arriving this fall — the first of its kind in the state.
