A History of Invention, Innovation, and Imagination
Madico’s 115-year history is grounded in innovation. Our founders were comprised of three families who formed Hy-Sil, a Boston-based company and forerunner to what would later become Madico.
Originally a maker of such goods as leather greeting cards and printed gift wrap paper, Hi-Syl also became known for making metallized products including gift wrap ribbons, tinsel, and a luxury wrap of paper laminated with aluminum foil.
Throughout the 20th century and through to this day, Hy-Sil’s transformation into Madico continues a rich tradition of invention, innovation, and imagination as shown in these milestone achievements.
