Steve Rafferty

Graduating from UNC Chapel Hill in 1980 and first trying a career as a production supervisor, Steve quickly moved into a sales position with Dillard Paper in 1982 that would utilize his love of working with people and interacting with customers on a daily basis. He became a fixture at Dillard Paper (later acquired by Xpedx) for the next 21 years where he found great success in the medical and pharmaceutical manufacturing industries.

Steve (along with fellow salesperson Joe Hogan) saw significant opportunity for growth at Atlantic and, in January 2003, took a leap of faith in the middle of his career by leaving Xpedx and joining the Atlantic team. He and Joe built up the Raleigh branch of Atlantic where Steve continued his focus on packaging and supplies for pharmaceutical manufacturers. These customers have stringent specifications to meet in all their product packaging and Steve has been able to ensure that they meet these requirements on a consistent and reliable basis.

At Atlantic, Steve also began working with customers in the automobile industry, which he found shared a similar need for pristine cleanliness in the production environment with his pharmaceutical customers. Steve gained a great deal of insight and experience working in these fields and now specializes in serving these industries for Atlantic. He brings outstanding value and integrity to his work and a positive attitude that brightens all our days.

Joe Hogan

Following in his father’s footsteps, Joe decided early on to pursue a career in sales that would allow him to engage with people and businesses in a meaningful and resourceful way. He got started with Dillard Paper in Raleigh in 1991 where he was fortunate to find excellent mentors in the industry, including Steve Rafferty.

Both Joe and Steve came to Atlantic in January 2003 to start a branch in the Raleigh area. They moved to the current Youngsville, NC office when Atlantic acquired Asheboro Paper and from there they would continue to serve the greater Raleigh market with added capacity for inventory management and custom packaging solutions.

Joe had been working closely with customers in the pharmaceutical and medical product industry and continues his work in that field today, specializing in distribution and contract packaging. He also works with accounts in the food industry, primarily with cartons and labels as well as end-of-line packaging.

Joe is an incredibly talented salesperson. Using the resources that Atlantic can offer, he takes an analytical, creative approach to finding the products that his customers need and develops tailored solutions for packaging and supplies that help them achieve their goals. He is truly an asset to Atlantic and to each of his customers.
