Spotlight: Menasha Corporation Partnership

June 14, 2023

In the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center’s 20th Anniversary Season, we are celebrating and highlighting the community who has welcomed live performing arts experiences to Northeastern Wisconsin and beyond. With the touring Broadway production of Ain’t Too Proud: The Life and Times of The Temptations as part of the 2022-23 Season Broadway lineup, we thank Fox Cities P.A.C.’s Community Partner, Menasha Corporation for helping make this production possible. President and CEO of Menasha Corporation, Chris Drees shares the history of the company and what the partnership with the Center means.

For nearly 175 years, Menasha Corporation has grown to be an industry leader in supply chain solutions. It is one of the oldest privately held companies in the state and has continued to reinvent itself to remain a critical partner for many major companies across North America and Europe. Based in Neenah, Wisconsin, Menasha Corporation consists of two primary companies: Menasha Packaging Company and ORBIS Corporation. Menasha Corporation employs over 7,900 employees in more than 100 locations in North America and Europe. “But our roots in the Fox Valley run deep, and we feel a special obligation toward ensuring that this community we call home is supported in many ways,” Chris shared.

Giving back to the community is a high priority to Menasha Corporation. Chris commented, “At the core of Menasha Corporation’s values, there has always been a deep commitment to corporate responsibility and social impact. This legacy of giving back began with our founder and is now woven into our culture.”

Menasha Corporation supports the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center because it is a multicultural venue for performances, educational opportunities and an engaging outlet for arts organizations. Personally, I thoroughly enjoy the Fox Cities P.A.C. shows and am grateful that our community has access to world-class live entertainment here in Northeast Wisconsin.
