History: In 1989, Marianne Lancaster established Lancaster Packaging, Inc. from her home. Today the company operates from a 17,000 square foot facility located in Hudson Massachusetts. Lancaster has grown from one product line of ESD flexible packaging materials into a National Wholesale Distribution & Purchasing Company providing vendor and supply chain management services.

The strategic direction of the company is to always improve. LPI’s operations are driven by Six-Sigma and AS91020/ISO principles and are always guided by “What the customer requires”.

As a woman-minority owned firm, Marianne has created an organization devoted to developing woman and minority owned businesses across the US. Lancaster seeks out diverse suppliers to not only use with our own organization, but to promote to our customer base.

Mission: To exceed our customer’s expectations by delivering creative, flexible, responsive and cost-effective distribution of packaging and industrial supplies including procurement and fulfillment services that utilize our expertise in purchasing and supply chain management.
