Inland – Why Work For Us?

What We Do

Seasoned with Inspiration

Everyone at Inland knows why we do things the way we do, because how we work is important. Our people see a real pride and internalize it. It’s not the Midwest work ethic, although we don’t mind being respected for how hard we work. It’s better than that, even inspired.

We have frequent conversations about aligning our practices with our values. We keep honing, refining. We talk about the magic that happens when people collaborate, and feel the energy when we are part of a development team. We are always searching, learning, and finding ways to make our work product better.

We know how to make things work. And we pay attention to things that work remarkably well so we can make the most of it, learn from it, and apply it to the next project for the next customer. That’s how you build expertise.

How we work is unique to us. It is a combination of our processes, watchful eyes, excitement in creating something new, and commitment to doing things well. With each repeated trip to a grocery or big box store, every Inland family member comes to learn which product packaging was developed and produced here. The pride comes through every time.

Who We Are

We power great packaging… but what powers us?

The Inland Story

From trusted local supplier to trusted global partner

There is something different about Inland.

A leader in advanced packaging technology, Inland Packaging has an impressive track record. Over the last seven decades, we have expanded dramatically into new products and new markets. Our tradition of inquiry and problem-solving—plus our substantial investment in new technology—have expanded our capabilities and made our culture of innovation possible.

Long known as the premier label printer for the big beer brands and the entire craft brewing industry, Inland has risen to prominence in new categories such as in-mold labeling (IML) and smart packaging. We now work collaboratively with brand owners and industry partners to advance innovative, best-in-class solutions for food, beverage and consumer product packaging.

Our history and our trajectory of success are points of pride, but they didn’t happen spontaneously. A solid work ethic is undoubtedly part of our success.

Other important elements about Inland’s character are harder to document, but in a word, Inland is family. It is a third-generation, family-owned company based in La Crosse, Wisconsin, built on relationships. The relationships began within our walls, among Inland employees, suppliers and customers. Over decades, they have flourished, becoming an extended network of strategic supply chain and customer relationships worldwide.

Give Back

We keep our communities strong

Three generations of Inland leaders have instilled in us a deep commitment to the communities in which we live.

Back in 2000 the Glendenning Family Foundation was formed as a way to share the success of the family business. Year after year the foundation has allocated funds throughout our communities to help improve the lives of area youth.

We have focused much of our support on United Way. Matching contributions from Inland are directed by United Way to local programs helping families and at-risk youth. Additional organizational support includes:

  • Big Brothers Big Sisters of the 7 Rivers Region
  • Boys and Girls Club of Greater La Crosse
  • Children’s Miracle Network
  • Children’s Museum of La Crosse
  • Gundersen Medical Foundation
  • La Crosse Area Family YMCA
  • La Crosse Family & Children’s Center
  • La Crosse Public Education Foundation
  • Riverfront
  • The Salvation Army
  • University of Wisconsin
  • Viterbo University
  • Western Technical College

At Inland, you have the opportunity to be a part of something bigger. To make an impact in a real and significant way. It’s woven into the thread of our company and shines bright in our communities.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Inland (La Crosse, WI) in May 2013.


    Pretty standard. But had to go through a physical fitness examination. And had to take a test for color vision. I also had to do some testing specific to the job I was applying for, but not sure if they do that anymore.
