Harry Voss, Former CEO, President, and Owner of Diamond Packaging, Dies at 78

Harry Voss
Diamond Packaging is deeply saddened to announce that Harry Voss, former CEO, president, and owner of the company, passed away on Sunday, February 28, 2016.

Harry joined Diamond in 1965 and was a powerful force in the packaging industry for over 40 years.

In 1973, he bought controlling interest of Diamond, and led its transformation from a company with 13 employees and $750,000 in sales to a global industry leader providing packaging products and services to Fortune 500 companies worldwide.

Harry’s fundamental business values: “Give the customer what he wants, when he wants it, made of the highest quality necessary, and charge what it is worth – nothing more and nothing less. That way he will be back tomorrow and you will be there to service him again.”

His presence will be missed yet always remembered. more
