Our Story


Tension Packaging & Automation’s parent company, Tension Corporation, was founded in 1886 and is based in Kansas City, Missouri. More than 135 years ago, our parent company, Tension Corporation, was established in Kansas City, Mo. as a manufacturer of stationary, advertising novelties, and eventually envelopes (our name stems from a specific style of envelope called a “tension tie”).


Tension is a fourth-generation-led, family-owned organization with nine US-based plants and an international presence with locations in Taiwan and China. We operate under two main divisions — our Envelope & Printed Products and Packaging & Automation. We’re proudly backed by our legacies of excellence and innovation, which have helped our Packaging & Automation division become a world-class leader in complete packaging and automation solutions.
