Public. Ltd. Firm Since 1955
Over forty-five years ago, in July of 1955, Merrill C. Schiffman entered into the paper jobbing business and specialized in corrugated boxes. Thus Merco Container Corporation was born. After years of manufacturing corrugated boxes, Merrill became more interested in the machinery aspect of the business. Envisioning a bold plan to develop a comprehensive line of basic corrugated machinery offering new innovative ideas at a price small and large box companies alike could afford.
Merrill was not an engineer, but with years of hands on experience running his own box plant, he was able to understand the needs of boxmakers. Merrill sold his container company to devote his time and energy to the forming of GLOBAL CONTAINER EQUIPMENT, LTD. Returning from Japan with a new line of corrugated box making machinery, he was on his way. From the early 70's, it was decided that a good tie would be used equipment. Global became helpful in assisting and creating a marketplace for a owner of corrugated machinery to buy, sell, and trade used equipment.
Over the years, Global has been able to create a manufacturing base to produce its boxmaking machinery in southeast Asia, Europe and the USA, enabling us to continue the theory of high quality, innovative new corrugated machinery at competitive prices. Global has also earned a position in the corrugated marketplace for reconditioning machinery with a meticulous eye for quality. In the early 80's, in came daughter Penny C. Schiffman, now of course Penny S. Field, whose responsibilities lie in management and marketing. Son James A. Schiffman has stepped in to handle sales and manufacturing, as his father did before him.
1995 came and Global took another step into the future. A new company name, GLOBAL EQUIPMENT LTD. And the introduction of a new logo. Our company name better reflects the services we provide. We do not sell containers, but we do sell quality new and used corrugated equipment worldwide.
In 2000, as we celebrate our 45th year, we continue with our goal of providing our customers with the best possible service in locating the right corrugated equipment for their specific needs. We want to continue growing, always being the best at what we do.
