Custom Products Corporation, New WIRE-Net Member

Established in Cleveland in 1975 by Bill Stepanek, Sr., Custom Products Corporation (CPC) was originally started as a forms company.

Services would be the key to success for this now 41 year old operation. The company leaders transitioned the organization to contract packaging and distribution of packaging supplies. Family led by Tim Stepanek, John Stepanek, and Bill Stepanek, Jr., Custom Products Corporation provides everything from retail kitting and assembly to inventory management.
