FLEXO Magazine : February 2012
Packaging Group is considered a leading innovator in the production of specialized folding cartons, serving clients of all sizes across North America from 11 facilities, specializing in flexo and other print processes. The Paperboard Group manufactures approximately 300,000 tons of 100 percent recycled paperboard every year for a variety of end uses, and focuses on customized cutting and distribution of all paper types according to specific customer needs. Its second giant step was in July of 2009, when it acquired the Specialized Packaging Group via a merger. This resulted in two divisions for the firm, Paperboard Group and Packag- ing Group, and made it a full-service packaging company.

End-use markets include folding cartons for dry and frozen foods, household goods, oral care products, powder detergent products and beverage products.

This naturally led to the creation of a new website, in an effort to better reflect the company ’s status as a leader in packaging. The fresh site presents the corporation as a whole, including detailed information on all its facilities, as well as providing a number of useful tools that customers demand. This initiative is a microcosm of PaperWorks’ methodology: cus- tomer service, streamlined workflow, and top-notch products. While PaperWorks may technically be a “new ” company, it is by no means inexperienced. From the initial leveraging of the knowhow of two well-established mills and a veteran staff, the firm maintains outstanding standards of quality while re- fining and expanding an already exceptional line of products. “ We hit the ground running, continuing to supply our customers with quality paperboard and exceptional service,” explains Mark Roy, senior vice president, sales and market- ing. “ T he organizational structure may have changed, but we’re still largely the same people producing the same reli- able products.” And this is only the beginning. “It’s hard to imagine how a new company could start off on a better foot than this one did,” Roy says. “ PaperWorks is going to be around for the long haul, delivering reliable, Installation and start-up team of the 10-color press. 38 FLEXO february 2012 www.flexography.org
