    Historical Context

    Dobeckmun (short for Dolan, Becker and Munson -- the co-founders) made cellophane bags and cigar pouches. The company was the first in the USA to have a laminating process for cellophane, and had branch offices around the USA, and a second factory in Berkeley, California.


    Dobeckmun was bought by the Dow Chemical Company in 1957.

    Dobeckmun also developed a product called Lurex, a non-tarnishable metallic thread used in fabric, and zip tape, the cellophane strip used for opening packages of chewing gum and cigarettes.
