Welcome to Empire Division of BCI

BCI Empire Division's passion for personal service differentiates them from other corrugated packaging companies. This passion enables BCI Empire to quickly respond to the changing needs and schedules of customers, and that flexibility is the key to Empire Division's success - and ultimately to yours.


BCI Empire Division began its operations in 1979 as Empire State Container - a wholesale packaging supplier with the ultimate goal of complete customer satisfaction with top-of-the-line products. Over 30 years later, BCI Empire's skilled and professional team members meet that goal every day in every way possible.

The fire that drives BCI Empire comes from the talented staff that has seen the changes in the packaging industry over the last three decades. Empire Division continues to innovate in order to accommodate any packaging need. BCI Empire's seasoned sales team has experience ranging from 10 years to 40 years in the corrugated packaging industry. This spectrum gives Empire Division the advantage of having a knowledgeable variety of viewpoints and perspectives.

The dedicated team at BCI Empire will complete any customer order, regardless of size or technicality. No request is too difficult, small, outrageous or unheard of - they do it all.

Environmental Impact

BCI Empire considers helping the environment a meaningful social issue. The manufacturing of corrugated packaging provides a key opportunity to aid in environmental efforts since corrugated boxes make up the vast majority of materials recycled each year.

Empire Division recycles all paper waste from the converting process to minimize our effect on our environment. In 2015 alone, over 1200 tons of corrugated was recycled - translating into over 60 truckloads of waste sent to recycling mills.

Additionally, BCI Empire also employs a water purification system to process all discarded printing ink, which is also water based. All solids are removed throughout this method rendering the water contaminant free. This in turn allows the water to enter into our county's sanitary sewage system as a harmless effluent.
