With no third generation to take on the family business, Trenton Corrugated Products, Inc. is under new ownership.
Previous owner and founder of the company, Tony Pecoraro, sold his box manufacturing company to Ian Bernstein. The company began in 1971 in a 2,000-square-foot room where Pecoraro and his wife, equipped with a razor knife and a screwdriver, made boxes on their hands and knees.
With little competition, the business was able to grow. “No one was selling boxes to the small manufacturer," he said. As the company expanded, Pecoraro moved the company into a 150,000-square-foot building.
