The World Leader in Disc Packaging for 25 Years
Ross O. Youngs - Founder, CEO & Inventor – After nearly 10 years working in technology-focused businesses, Youngs founded Univenture in 1988 in Marysville, Ohio to invent and manufacture innovative media packaging solutions for corporate customers in the US and abroad. Youngs’ educational background had exposed him to environmental science and industrial engineering, which turned out to be a good combination for this his “new” venture. Combined with extensive work experience in the engineering of optical and videodiscs, he invented an exciting, new package for compact discs that not only protects the discs but also conserves resources.
Youngs received a US Patent in July 1989 for the innovative Safety-sleeve® design. The product was an immediate success and the company surpassed $1 million in sales in 1991. Univenture moved to a larger facility in 1994 and started one of the first packaging manufacturers' web sites.
The dedication of the Univenture team and superior-quality products has resulted in numerous awards and accolades for its innovation, commitment to customers, and sales growth. The company has been listed on the Inc. 500 list of fastest growing private companies and Ross Youngs has been named Business Person of the Year by the U.S. Small Business Administration and Manufacturing Entrepreneur of the Year by Ernst & Young.
Youngs was considering moving his banking relationship from a large financial institution when a friend referred him to Heartland Bank. Youngs met with the bank, liked what he saw and moved his entire banking relationship to Heartland. We’re so glad he did!
