The original building used to supply Galion, Ohio with Lumber and Coal.

One of those “House Sized” boxes that contained road grade equipment to help with the war effort.

Back in the late 1940’s rail car was the most efficient and cost effective way to send items long distances. 


Opening their doors in the early 1930’s Flick Bollerer Lumber Co. has taken various forms through out the years.  Originally founded by John Flick, George W. Flick and Albert Bollerer as a lumber and coal yard for the industrial town of Galion, Ohio, the company spent most of the pre WWII era catering to the local economy’s heating and lumber needs. 

As tensions in the European theater escalated bringing the United States closer and closer to joining the second Great War Flick Bollerer Lumber started its long running relationship with the U.S. Armed Forces. Working with Galion Iron Works, a local construction equipment manufacture Flick Bollerer began producing and packing “house sized” boxes to transport road grade equipment across the Atlantic to help with the war effort.  With the conclusion of the war and a dry up of military business in the late 1940’s the company reverted back to its traditional ways of retail sales.  Still picking up governmental contracts sporadically the 1970’s saw Flick Lumber Co. acting more as a commercial wood box and pallet company for the many of local industrial businesses. 

As the 1980’s drew to a close the third generation of Flick’s, brothers Gary and Mike took over the business from their mother and father Gene and Ruth to guide the company into the next century.  As many local lumber yards lost business to large one stop shop super stores Flick Lumber Co. adapted into Flick Packaging and directed its attention back to strictly military and commercial sales. 

As of January 1, 2014, Flick Packaging is proud to announce the new President of Flick Packaging. Kristi Stief is a 4th generation Flick. Her goal as president is to continue to streamline production while maintaining superior quality as we have for the past 30 years.

They are in process with new technological equipment to exceed any quality expectations any existing or new customers may need.
