Rainbow Paper brings employment to county

When Jim Lewis, owner of Rainbow Paper Products, decided it was time to retire, he contacted his longtime business associate, Phil Houser. In just a short time, Houser and his financial manager, Jeremy Boulinger, made the decision to open Rainbow Paper, Inc., continuing the business of making paper bags and products and bringing new jobs to Johnson County.
Three short weeks later, five new full-time positions had been filled with Johnson County residents. It didn't take long for the community to learn that a new company had a few job openings. “I had like 25 applications,” said Boulinger. The applicants were required to provide past employment information, recommendations and pass drug testing. He plans on holding onto some of those applications should the company expand in the future.
“The office of Economic Development is pleased to welcome Mr. Houser and Jeremy Boulinger of Rainbow Paper, Inc. We are also pleased to announce the addition of five jobs in Johnson County,“ said Johnson County Economic and Tourism Director Karla Prudhomme. “The Chamber of Commerce looks forward to working with them.”
