The CartonCraft family shared Memorial Day 2017 fun at a picnic hosted by Owner, Tony Reyes, and the Knights of Columbus. Members of the community, friends, and family came together in acknowledgment of the sacrifice of our men and women in the military. It was a beautiful, sunny day, with a bouncy house for the kiddos, live music & entertainment for the adults, and a gracious amount food/desserts for everyone!
A wonderful way to bring in summer 2017!
In support of the Waterleaf Women’s Center, CartonCraft Inc. donated over $500.00 to the organization and helped raised over $3,000.00 by sponsoring a 5k walk/run in Winfield, IL following a pancake breakfast feast that CartonCraft Inc. owner, Tony Reyes personally cooked for over 200 attendees with the help of the St. John’s Knights of Columbus.
Additionally, CartonCraft Inc. would like to recognize and congratulate two of our very own employees who participated in the event and ranked among the top 3 runners for their age groups:
Ms. Sara Worel #776 – 3rd place winner & Mr. Sam Rylowicz #692– 2nd place winner.
We couldn’t be more proud of our team!

CartonCraft Incorporated is committed to environmental stewardship, and as part of our ongoing Sustainability Initiative we set the goal of reducing our carbon footprint in 2016. Our manufacturing operation in Saint Charles, IL is already designed to eliminate unnecessary waste and maximize the usage of resources, but this year we identified an opportunity to better conserve energy by updating all of the lamps and ballasts in our overhead lighting fixtures.
We sought the expertise of energy efficient lighting producers who helped us identify the best lighting technology available. We made the decision to invest in the retrofitting of all overhead lighting fixtures throughout our plant, and the installation of the new lighting in our plant is now complete.
By switching to energy efficient lamps, we have reduced our annual footprint by 107,209 lbs. of carbon dioxide, 701,730 lbs. of sulfur, and 253,403 lbs. of nitrous oxide. We are excited to have reached yet another sustainability goal this year!
CartonCraft Inc. continues to lead the way in environmentally responsible manufacturing practices, as well as the development and implementation of sustainable packaging solutions for companies both large and small.

CartonCraft Inc. is pleased to announce that our Saint Charles, IL facility has retained its SQF Level 2 Certification, with a score of 98/100. This score places CartonCraft Inc. in the “EXCELLENT” category once again.
SQF Level 2 Certification is a Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP) based food safety and quality management standard that is benchmarked by the Global Food Safe Initiative (GFSI). Products manufactured under the SQF standard retain a high degree of acceptance in global markets by retailers, consumer brands, and food service providers.
CartonCraft’s reputation for excellence in the manufacturing of folding cartons and food safe packaging is again amplified as our processes align with the stringent requirements of the GFSI, opening the doors to new opportunities and growth.
“Many packaging suppliers find themselves unable to reach SQF Level 2 certification due to its stringent requirements,” said Jim Whiteley, Quality Manager at CartonCraft Inc. “Our commitments to providing customers with food safe, high quality products while embracing new standards, practices, and technologies proved instrumental in helping us retain this goal,” “We are humbled to add SQF to the list of our numerous certifications such as: ISO 9001:2008, FSC, SFI, and G7.”
