"Service Is Our FIRST Consideration."
George A. Bossler

E. A. Dages, Inc. as our company is known today, was founded in 1921 by the current owner's grandfather, George Arlington Bossler.

1921 - George A. Bossler rented a small warehouse on Delaware Avenue in Philadelphia. He sold butter wrappers and egg cartons, as well as butcher paper.

1932 - G. A. Bossler outgrew the rented building. A larger warehouse was purchased at 306 New Street in Philadelphia. There, he was joined in business by his son-in-law Edwin Dages. The company predominantly served the food industry, specializing in a wide selection of paper products and bags until the passing of Mr. Bossler in 1945. Edwin Dages changed the company name to E. A. Dages and incorporated in 1949.

1959 - E. A. Dages, Inc. expanded to include a small branch warehouse in Allentown. The growing line of products now included gift wrapping materials and packaging for industry.
