BW Papersystems Becomes ICPF's Most Recent Corporate Partner

The International Corrugated Packaging Foundation (“ICPF”) has announced that BW Papersystems has become ICPF's most recent corporate partner by making a financial pledge to support the foundation's educational and student outreach initiatives.
"BW Papersystems. has been well aware of ICPF's successful work with universities and students across the country for a long time", said Neal McConnellogue, President of BW Papersystems. "Through ICPF, hundreds of students annually learn about corrugated packaging careers. We plan to immediately begin using ICPF’s career portal and other resources to acquire entry level engineers and programmers.  Already we have seen several potential matches in the portal’s resume bank."

ICPF Chairman, Jeff Chalovich (WestRock) welcomed BW Papersystems  as an ICPF corporate partner and thanked Neal for the corporation's pledge. "For six or seven years, BW Papersystems has supported ICPF through serving as a sponsor and participant in the annual Holiday Weekend in New York.  During a dinner meeting recently with Neal and his team in Indianapolis, I was pleased to learn that BW Papersystems wished to take the next step of making a financial pledge commitment to become a formal ICPF Corporate Partner." 

ICPF Vice Chairman Andy Pierson added that BW Papersystems has been a long term player in the corrugated packaging industry and will be a great addition to ICPF’s corporate Partnership. I initially approached Miles Fletcher and Neal knowing that an ICPF corporate partnership would be a great fit for them and for our education foundation.
