Who would drive a Rolls Royce across a corrugated cardboard bridge?  Who would stand under that bridge when the Rolls Royce is on it?  In the '70's, a Super Bowl ad presented the answer. 
Click the Rolls Royce below to see the ad (click the little triangle on bottom of screen that comes up to start ad).
Ray was a product specialist for triple wall corrugated cardboard. This Super Bowl ad was created to demonstrate the strength of this material as it was being introduced by St. Regis paper many decades ago. Ray still makes stong Big Boxes! Call today to learn more.

Ray’s  Vision:

     To be the one-source and first-choice creator of practical and economic solutions for the almost impossible packaging and shipping problems for valuable contents.
Our Founder and History:

     The roots of are based on the expertise, background, experience and education of the owner – and Chief Box Engineer, Ray Stopper.  

     Starting in 1972 in heavy duty packaging, he now has more than four decades of practical experience in the logistics industry as a packaging engineer.   He is an alumnus of James Madison University, Harrisonburg, Virginia, with a Bachelor of Science in Marketing.

     Ray is a perfectionist when it comes to customer service.  His focus is on markets that need custom corrugated big boxes.  This builds upon his decades of meeting challenging situations as a market development professional.  His expertise and niche is on the creation, fabrication and assembly of heavy duty corrugated packaging systems for bulk, large and valuable contents.

     He conceptualized the company, Big Boxes, in 2001 and formalized operations in March 2002.  The company and fabrication facility is located on large acreage that is adjacent to a rural residence on the outskirts of Richmond, Virginia.
