Corrugated board near Chicago

Corrugated

BOX BASICS

Corrugated packaging is one of the most common packaging materials. It is inherently environmentally friendly, has a high strength to weight ratio, and protects products throughout the shipping process. All corrugated boxes start out as at least three layers of paper, two smooth sheets sandwiching a fluted layer.

 

Most custom packaging manufacturers purchase their corrugated boards from a corrugated sheet supplier. With the installation of our state of the art corrugator, we have the manufacturing ability to create innovative box combinations specific to our customer’s needs and a packaging solution that provides superior strength in a sustainable light weight sheet.
