Global-Pak is one of the largest bulk bag suppliers in the country

LISBON, Ohio (WKBN) – There is a bulk bag and packaging company in Columbiana County that is one of the best in the business. It is also hiring.

Global-Pak is one of the largest bulk bag suppliers in the country. It puts together polypropylene bags which can hold up to 2 tons of an item. Customers use them for popcorn, cheese, and they’re popular in refractories and quarries.

Global-Pak is hiring. Sewing and cutting machines are an important part of its business, they need to keep them running. The company needs a maintenance technician, maybe someone willing to do some general building maintenance.

“If we ran across maybe a retired person that had a good skill set, we can fill in some of the building maintenance needs,” Foster said. “If we had someone with good equipment and machinery skills, they could do the other portion, or we could look at it as a full-time position.”

Someone with good equipment and machinery skills is important. Global-Pak also needs an order fulfillment specialist.

“We’re looking for someone who can step in and pull orders, accurately. We use scanners and bar coding, so we’re looking for someone who handle that,” Foster said.

The company could train somebody with the right skill set. Global-Pak wants bright and motivated workers. It has the opportunity.

“You’re not pegged into that hole forever if there is an opportunity to advance,” Foster said.

“Steady, solid opportunity for somebody to provide for themselves and their family in the area,” Foster said.

Global-Pak pays a competitive wage, and offers benefits including a generous 401(k) match.
