Our Location

In 1899, a team of 12 worked from a rented warehouse in Hartsville, S.C. Named Southern Novelty Company at the time, our first product was a cone-shaped paper yarn carrier used for winding and transporting yarn. Since most of the textile cones of that day were wooden, paper cones were a novelty. The Company soon became the leading producer of cones in the United States.

We continued to diversify our product line and add new operations around the country. In 1923, the Southern Novelty Company name was changed to Sonoco Products Company, or "Sonoco," using the first two letters from each word of the original name.
​​​​​​​

More than 100 years later, we have 19,000 employees working in approximately 300 operations in 34 countries, serving some of the world's best known brands in some 85 nations. But we've never left our roots behind.
