Our Heritage

Founded in 1922, The Royal Group is a subsidiary of Schwarz Partners LP which resides corporately out of Indianapolis IN and owns many companies across the country specializing in various markets such as paper mills, corrugated sheet manufacturing and converting, packaging and displays, and transportation.

History of The Royal Group:
The Royal Box Company, now known as The Royal Group (or TRG) was founded in 1922 by several Nerenberg siblings, including oldest sister Molly who was first in the family to immigrate to the United States from Eastern Europe in the early part of the century.

The company began by manufacturing wooden boxes and pallets for the growing manufacturing industry in Chicago. Throughout the early part of the 1930’s and 1940’s, Royal began investing in equipment and technology to convert corrugated sheets and in the 1950’s purchased its first corrugator. By the 1990’s Royal had acquired several other locations in the mid-western region and celebrated its 75th anniversary.

In 1999, The Nerenberg family decided to sell the company to the The Schwarz Family of Indianapolis with the hopes and understanding of The Royal Group legacy continuing to thrive and grow. The Royal Group has continued to grow as intended and remains a key focus in Schwarz Partners corrugated converting operations across the country.

History of Schwarz Partners LP:
Jack Schwarz founded Schwarz Partners in 1998 following the sale of Ce-Corr to Georgia Pacific.

Beginning with just three employees, the Schwarz family of companies now employs over 2,500 people throughout the United States.

Ce-Corr, at the time of its sale, was the largest independent purchaser of containerboard. After the closing, the newly formed Schwarz Partners focused on niche business with the manufacturing of corrugated sheets.

Focused on expanding to different segments of the corrugated industry, Schwarz Partners purchased The Royal Group in 1999. The Royal Group has continued to grow steadily over the past 15 years. As of 2014, Schwarz Partners supports multiple businesses in various industries, with a core focus on packaging, sheet feeders, and transportation.

Schwarz Partners is a privately held, second-generation company poised to continue growing in its core markets. As an independent supplier and provider in these verticals, the company is well-positioned to outwardly assess long-term business opportunities that provide value for customers.
