Founded in 1985 by Horace Harper Jr. as Knoxville Corrugated Box Co. Inc., Knox Box has been a market leader in packaging solutions in the Southeast for more than 30 years.

In early 2016 the company ownership changed and was re-named Knoxville Box and Container Inc., but will continue to be known as Knox Box and will continue to deliver superior products and services to all our valued customers.

Horace Harper Jr. continues to be involved in both General Management and Sales.  Building from more than three decades of Horace’s leadership, Knox Box is well positioned to be a market leader for many decades to come.

All of us at Knox Box look forward to providing solutions to your packaging needs and earning your trust and loyalty.


We've got a new Logo, but all the same people you know and trust.
