Bayou State Packaging is a paperboard convertor and packaging supplier based in Monroe, Louisiana. Co-founders, Will Kight and DeSha Sims, formed the company in 2012. The two friends had been working independently in the industry for decades gaining invaluable experience and knowledge along the way. 

They recognized a growing desire in the packaging industry; good old-fashioned customer service. Something many of the larger suppliers seemed to lack. Will’s paperboard background in Louisiana and DeSha’s packaging background in Texas created the perfect blend of skillsets. So, they teamed up and launched Bayou State Packaging.

Fundamental components such as offering quality products, competitive pricing, and quick turnaround times will always be essential for success in the industry. But with Bayou State Packaging, their aim was to provide customers with something beyond just simply meeting demand.

Their approach was to build long term relationships by providing good customer service. Being available and responsive, being honest and shooting customers straight, being flexible or adaptive to customer needs are some of the core values emphasized the day the company opened its doors.

And Bayou State Packaging has been growing ever since! Supported by an awesome team of dedicated individuals, Bayou State Packaging continues to serve customers in a broad range of industries while also maintaining the core values in which the company was founded. 

The company’s size allows for team members to easily connect with customers, which creates an overall more efficient experience and helps strengthen relationships. Bayou State Packaging’s capabilities continue to expand as well, ensuring customer’s needs are being met, no matter the order size or complexity.
