Ken Anderson

Ken came to Atlantic in April 2014 to continue a career in packaging that already spans two decades. While he started in the business as a packaging equipment technician, he moved into stretch film in 1996 working for a film manufacturer. He put his technical skills to work in this field, spending 8 years troubleshooting issues that customers were experiencing with their film and equipment. He then moved into a sales role, using the unique insights he gained both on the technical side and on the film manufacturing side to provide innovative solutions for his customers.

Ken is especially skilled at understanding what extrusion process and additives will provide the best performance for each film application. He has put this knowledge to use in working with paper mills, an industry where timing and throughput are critical for a successful operation. Ken’s ability to troubleshoot equipment and provide the best performing films for all types of paper products from the mills makes him an invaluable resource to these customers.

Today at Atlantic, Ken is instrumental in providing our paper making customers a comprehensive roll wrap program that includes film, repulpable splicing tape, and custom corrugated headers. The time and frequency he has spent in mills over the years has made him skilled as an all around problem solver for everything on the dry end of the paper making process. Ken is truly a valued consultant for our paper mill customers.

Roll Wrap

Atlantic roll wrap technicians bring decades of experience working at all angles of this packaging process. Our collective experience provides us with a comprehensive understanding of our customer's needs and all the factors throughout the process that can affect the performance and outcome of the final product.

We protect your product

The bottom line is that we offer high performance film wrap for optimal protection of your product through all stages of handling, delivery, and storage. We work with large-scale paper mills and are adept at handling roll wrap systems and materials to protect rolls up to 6' in diameter and up to 5,000 lbs.

We supply film that is optimized for specific applications and we propose systems that will be most effective to the customer's desired outcome. To this end, we offer radial wrap, axial wrap or a radial axial package that will fully enclose the roll in protective film to help it withstand handling on the forklifts, exposure to weather, non-optimal conditions, and storage with other product.

We help solve problems

Where Atlantic's added value lies with our customers is in the creative solutions we can offer to help solve problems that may be causing damaged freight or throughput problems.

Our knowledge of the equipment, the systems, and the materials together with our sensitivity regarding our customers' unique needs and budget concerns make Atlantic an invaluable partner when it comes to roll wrap.

 We've put together a complete offering of packaging supplies used by paper manufactures so we can act as a "one stop shop" for what you need. Headers, roll wrap, labels, splice tape, rubber mats, & airbags are a few examples of stocked items we can provide you when you need them.

Industrial Converting - Slitting & Rewinding

Jeff Billhorn

Jeff grew up with paper converting as the family business. He worked during high school at his father’s first converting facility in Louisiana and then went back to work with him during his time at Northeast Louisiana University. Jeff and his dad started Billhorn Converters together at that point and, in 1991, Jeff became the sole owner of that business.

While Billhorn Converters started out as primarily a brokering business, it ultimately grew into a full converting operation with 4 locations (in WA, SC and two in LA) and on-site equipment for general paper converting production. Jeff spent 20 years at Billhorn Converters before he met Rusty Carter and joined forces with Atlantic in July 2012.

Jeff and five members of his staff moved to Atlantic in Charleston to set up an industrial converting facility with proximity to the port and some of the major east coast paper suppliers. Jeff’s machine operators, who had worked with him at Billhorn Converters for up to 16 years, were essential in getting the Atlantic operation up and running and they are the guys still running the machines today.

Jeff has carved out a specialty business in wide web printing ideal for consumer labels and industrial wrappers. He also runs narrow width slitting with capabilities of slitting paper and board grades down to 3/8” for a variety of industrial end uses.

With Jeff and his crew on board at Atlantic, we have a wealth of knowledge and expertise in converting that provides an unparalleled resource for our customers.

Film Expertise

Atlantic prioritizes our investment in people and expertise. This expertise gets put to work for our customers in how we approach a new project and how we adapt to new challenges and changes in the industry.

We see the big picture

When we meet with a paper mill as a new customer, the first thing we do is perform an audit of their current process. Our technicians spend time in the facility to assess what the exact product is; what type of equipment is being used and what condition that equipment is in; where the product is being shipped; what the shipping and packaging expectations are; and what the current conditions of the process are. Is there damaged freight, are there customer complaints, or is the facility experiencing frequently repeated issues?

We are often able to identify the root cause of existing issues or present an optimized process that will improve efficiency and ultimately save money for our customer.

Focus on problem solving

Our problem solving process relies on an open minded, creative outlook. We may set up controlled test environments so that we can test and prove the efficacy of our solutions before any changes are implemented. The insight gained through the audit and testing process helps us work toward the best possible formula to match the equipment with the right film and materials.

Our working knowledge of your overall systems, equipment, and product together with our long term investment in your success is what makes Atlantic your ideal partner in roll wrap applications.

Roll Headers

Custom Headers

Very few machines exist in the U.S. that can cut custom headers to protect raw material paper rolls out of the mills, and Atlantic has one of them. (Learn more: Atlantic Industrial Converting) We offer an incredible opportunity for paper mills to get the exact roll headers they need to package and protect their entire range of product going out the door.

Optimal protection for your product

Roll headers that are custom cut to match your product serve as valuable protection during freight and storage. Any reduction in damaged freight means better efficiency, lower costs, and better customer service from the mill.

Our customers trust Atlantic to cut, deliver, and manage the inventory on roll headers. We have earned this trust through years of on-time, high quality, and accurate service.

We are your source

Our ability to cut and deliver custom roll headers for paper mill products together with our roll wrap film, equipment, and inventory management provides a great value for our customers. Add in our dedicated sales, technical, and customer service team, and Atlantic becomes a one-stop packaging source for paper mill facilities.

  Atlantic's wide web slitting and rewinding as well as printing and precision sheeting offer paper mills flexibility and diversity in an ever changing market. Our capabilities provide the ability to be a problem solver for mill customers.

Repulpable Tapes

Repulpable splicing tapes

Atlantic can provide paper mills with repulpable splicing tape in conjunction with our other offerings including roll wrap, film wrappers, roll headers, labels, and inventory management.

Closing the loop

Using repulpable splicing tape means that raw material is recyclable and goes back into the process, closing the loop on the mills' waste stream. This is extremely advantageous for our paper mill customers in terms of improving sustainability, reducing waste, and increasing efficiency.

Paper mills can count on Atlantic as a steady and reliable source of repulpable splicing tape to help ensure that systems run continuously and without challenges to the throughput process.

Wes Carter

Atlantic’s history traces back to Wes’s grandfather, Horace Carter, and is as ingrained in Wes’s personal history as it is in his professional career.

As a young kid, Wes remembers visiting his grandfather’s office and the Tabor City facility. He has vivid recollections of the people, the place, and the culture of support that Atlantic encouraged both at work and in the community.

His working experience with Atlantic began when he was in high school and was employed during the summers in the Wilmington warehouse, sweeping floors and driving forklifts. It was here that he learned firsthand the work ethic that sustains Atlantic to this day.

After graduating from UNC with a degree in journalism, Wes recognized that Atlantic was an opportunity where he could have a creative and challenging career and also contribute to the family business in a meaningful way. He worked his way from the warehouse, to a role in customer service, to sales support, and ultimately to earning his own accounts and gaining insight and experience that would propel him to a senior leadership position.

Today, Wes continues to manage the Charleston operation as well as identify and develop strategic accounts for Atlantic on a corporate level. In addition, Wes is instrumental in working with our sales team to evaluate customer needs and create platforms that deliver Atlantic’s vast resources to the marketplace.

He is inspired by the work ethic and talent of the people at Atlantic and is committed to continued investment in the future of the company represented by our people, resources, equipment, facilities, and overall growth year after year. Wes believes this is what has given us the ability to serve the complex packaging needs of Fortune 500 manufacturers and what has moved us into the spotlight on a national scale.
