Brad Fields

Brad began his career in the late 1970's, working in purchasing positions in the apparel and textile industry . His relationship with Atlantic started here, as a customer, and in 1983 he made the switch to working directly for Atlantic in outside sales.

His work in sales led him to the air filter industry in the mid-1980’s where he was able to fulfill a specialized order for die cutting heavy weight chipboard products through Atlantic’s converting operation. Meeting the demand for these chipboard spacers on manual die cutters soon developed into a more diverse business in industrial converting that included air filter frames and other related products.

Brad oversaw the installation of die cutters and printing presses in a new, dedicated location in Tabor City N.C. in the early 1990’s that would provide greater capabilities to serve this sector.

Today, Brad manages national programs for our customers that include the sourcing of paperboard and the production, manufacturing, and implementation of converted paperboard solutions. Under his leadership, Atlantic continues to dedicate resources to our industrial converting operation as we pursue new opportunities for growth and expansion.
