Best Places to Work: Wonder State Box Company

2 min read

Established in 1987, and now with close to 100 employees, Wonder State Box is a diverse, corrugated packaging manufacturer with locations in Conway and Harrison.

As a division of SMC Packaging Group, Wonder State Box also has locations in Springfield and Kansas City, Missouri, and Tulsa. Whether out of state or in Arkansas, the company focuses on doing the right thing for both customers and employees.

Wonder State Box believes in investing in its people by providing upward mobility, developing talent, and investing in each employee’s personal growth goals. Through the Employee Stock Ownership Program, each employee is an owner of the company and collectively they own almost 25%. This ownership element empowers team members to make decisions that support the customer and the company, all while investing in their own future.

As challenging as the pandemic has been for people and communities, Wonder State Box has continued full employment and growth to supply the ever increasing need for packaging. As the world was turned upside down during the past year, employees could depend on keeping their jobs during the challenging times.

Wonder State Box was also at the forefront of implementing safety measures and precautions to protect its people and their families and to protect jobs.

Wonder State Box is committed to service within the communities, where its employees live. It does this by charitable contributions and investing time to support local civic and charitable organizations, by serving on nonprofit boards and seeking volunteer opportunities (Boy Scouts of America, Boys and Girls Club, Kiwanis, and Conway Noon Optimist Club).

The company also feels strongly about supporting veterans and providing opportunities for them to commit their leadership skills and work ethic toward their success and that of the company.

Wonder Box continually invests in its people, equipment and community as well as striving to cultivate diversity throughout the organization.


Wonder State Box is celebrating its 50th anniversary.
