Our History

Founded in the Boston area by Donald Farrington, Farrington Packaging began as a manufacturer of wrapped metal shell cases in the early 1920's. The company gradually diversified into other types of packaging, including wrapped cardboard and plastic injection molded boxes. Through this diversity, and a strong emphasis on automation and customer service, the Company quickly became a leader in the custom packaging field. Farrington later expanded beyond box production and began manufacturing covering materials and diversified into other markets as it began to produce credit card machines. In the late 1950's its manufacturing operations were located in Needham Heights, Massachusetts and in Cranston, Rhode Island. After Mele Enterprises acquired Farrington in 1961, all operations were eventually moved to Utica, New York, its present day location. During the 1990's Farrington began to manufacture boxes in China and other low production cost countries. To this day, Farrington remains a leader in the packaging field through its emphasis on extraordinary customer service, design, engineering and quality.
