More than a decade ago AICC, The Independent Packaging Association recognized the need for members to work together to better compete in the national marketplace. To allow members to compete against large market forces AICC petitioned the federal government to acknowledge that members could work together and remain compliant with anti-trust laws. Winning government approval AICC created FirstPak.

FirstPak is the North American "brand name" used to identify independent corrugated, folding carton and rigid box converters operating in joint selling entities serving multiple-location customers. By aligning themselves with other AICC members, independents can better serve multi-location customers, target multi-location accounts and compete with the largest selling entities

With the continued consolidation in North America FirstPak is just as valid now as it was when it was created.
