History of Camden Bag & Paper Company

Camden Bag and Paper Company was established in 1932 in Camden, New Jersey. The business started by selling paper bags to the road side farm markets stretching from Camden to Atlantic City. As its success took course, it made decisions to diversify adding new products to their sales repertoire growing from just paper bags to bakery supplies, food service supplies, janitorial supplies and equipment, corrugated boxes, shipping material and industrial packaging.

Camden Bag is penetrating beyond the borders of the Tri-State area offering a full line of products supplying schools, bakeries, office buildings, industrial manufacturing operations, health care, airlines, supermarkets and food service markets. Camden’s product categories include paper, plastics, packaging, janitorial, chemical and floor cleaning equipment.

Camden Bag and Paper moved to its present 75,000 sq. ft. facility in Burlington in 2016.
