Our Story from the heart

of Kentucky's famous horse country

About Us

For over 50 years Revere® Packaging has operated its Shelbyville, KY location in the heart of famous horse country and just thirty minutes from Churchill Downs, home of the Kentucky Derby. Our culture traces its roots to our founder, Paul Revere and his horse, Brown Beauty. On Patriots’ Day, each April 16th, we celebrate his courageous midnight ride in 1775.

From these historic beginnings, Revere has expanded its operations across four states and now operates four manufacturing facilities in: Shelbyville, KY, Sacramento, CA, LaPorte, IN and Kapolei, HI. We are a leading food packaging company and preferred supplier of the highest quality aluminum foil containers, custom plastic containers and thermoform plastic to the food industry across North America.
