Our current success is driven by our proud history. Founded in 1918, The Eastern Bag & Paper Group, was first established in Bridgeport, Connecticut as a small, family-owned company operated by Samuel and Sadie Baum.
Samuel and Sadie were succeeded by their son, Gerry; and his wife, Louise Baum who took over following his passing. Later, their daughter, Meredith Reuben, served as CEO and transformed the company by simply listening to its customers.
The company expanded its product breadth beyond just commercial cleaning and foodservice packaging supplies, offering powered janitorial equipment sales, service, & repair, hands-on training programs, as well as warewash and laundry equipment sales and service.
