CSUF’s Family Business Council Announces Thoro Packaging, A Multi-Generational Company, As Its Newest Member
FULLERTON, Calif., January 18, 2012– The Family Business Council (FBC), part of CSUF’s Mihaylo College, today announced its newest member, Thoro Packaging. The preeminent educational resource for family businesses in Southern California, the FBC is pleased to welcome aboard the premier packaging manufacturer to join its robust network of family business leaders.
Located in Corona, the family-owned company has found success in the niche field of manufacturing folded cartons and is thrilled to become a part of the FBC. “We look forward to collaborating with other family-owned businesses in this area so we can grow and refine our position in the marketplace,” said Janet Steiner, President and CEO of Thoro Packaging.
More than 40 years ago, founder Macy Dabek, Janet’s father, saw a need and with a single, one color printing press, one small die cutter and help from his wife, he created Thoro Packaging.

Thoro Packaging has requalified as a G7™ Master Printer through the International Digital Enterprise Alliance (IDEAlliance®). Having first applied and received the qualification last year, the G7 mark demonstrates Thoro’s commitment to using the most modern technology, techniques, proofing and printing process controls and standards, required to produce high-quality printed folding carton packaging.
G7 standards require that the qualified printer is able to consistently produce a close visual match from proof to print; and as such, many printers choose to qualify on just one press. This year, Thoro opted to qualify on all three of our Heidelberg presses, including our UV press. “We believe that it is important to ensure that all of our equipment and press operations are meeting the highest industry standards, including G7 Qualified and ISO 12647-2 compliant,” said Jan Steiner. “And we don’t stop there. We are always pushing our team to improve quality, explore new and often difficult techniques and color matching challenges, and provide our customers with innovative packaging solutions.”
