Happy New Year!
Can you believe we just closed out on another year? Time seems to blend as we find ourselves still in challenging times. That means we need to do our best to focus on the positive as we continue to head towards the light in the tunnel.
First and foremost, the Taylor Box Family wants to thank you for continuing to be our fans and supporters so that we can continue on our box-making mission. Because of folks like yourselves, we had so many great things happen in 2021 that we wanted to share.
So what were the highlights of 2021, and what do we have in store for 2022?
2021 In Review

We were over the moon this year about taking home our first Dieline award!
This one-of-a-kind influencer keepsake piece for Adidas celebrated the 50th anniversary of the classic Superstar Sneaker and paid homage to the infamous hip-hop group RUN DMC.
This piece took home the Gold Level award for the Entertainment Category. Watch the video >
We are incredibly proud of our team for their commitment to following so many ever-changing complex safety protocols over the last few years.
Despite all the inconveniences and stress of so many new rules to follow, the team really stepped up and worked together. We gave everyone the option to vaccinate, but we offered any support in helping to find a location and offering transportation if they needed it. 98% chose to vaccinate.
Because of our team's commitment to each other and the company we never had to shut down our shop. Thank you to everyone on our team.
#1 in Safety for Rigid Box Shops in US
Turns out we've been knocking it out of the park this year with our OSHA Incident rate. In the latest report from the Paperboard Packaging Council's Safety Box Score report (November 2021) Taylor Box Company was #1 for the PaperBoard Packaging Councils Hours w/o an OSHA recordable incident!
Never Can Say Goodbye
Our CFO, Patricia Lidell has decided that it is time for her to embark on her next journey called retirement. After 30 years of being our President's rights hand woman, the organization's Controller, Quoter, Human Resources and 5 Star Party planner, and at one time our Production Manager, we say our fond farewells.
Instead of focusing on numbers, Pat will focus her time on things like boating, fishing, and spending time in Marco Island with her husband Jim. She'll also have longer visits with her 3 sons and 5 grandchildren in England and New England. And she plans to experience new creative and learning adventures to find new passions.
Thank you for all of your years of helping our organization charge through challenging times and for being behind so many of our many successes over the years.
