Evergreen Packaging Equipment celebrates 140 years

With a dairy heritage dating back to 1880, Evergreen Packaging Equipment is celebrating 140 years in business. The business started as Cherry-Burrell Corporation by John Cherry and David Burrell, and was later renamed to Evergreen Packaging Equipment. Despite name changes, the company maintained its dairy focus through many owners.

Entry into the manufacture of gable top packaging equipment began in 1966. As needs of processors evolve, Evergreen continues to provide fresh packaging solutions with gable top filling equipment for refrigerated dairy, juice, liquid eggs, and other liquid food products. Available for standard pasteurised, extended shelf life (ESL), and extended long life (ELL) applications, a broad machine portfolio fills cartons from 4-ounce up to half-gallon, at speeds from 50 up to 340 cartons per minute in various cross-sections.

Commenting on the company’s 140 years of foundation, Gary Nissen, general manager for Evergreen Packaging Equipment, extended his appreciation to processors for their continued business partnership, and ensure them of Evergreen’s ongoing commitment to the industries served.
