Sebastian Tine

Sebastian started Caribbean Products after a 10-year career in computer networking and distribution. While he initially started his business in Boston, it wasn’t long before the need arose for warehouse and distribution space in the Caribbean. He relocated to Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic in 1999 and built his business into one of the first offshore comprehensive packaging operations that included industrial packaging, converting, printing, and distribution.

Between 1999 and 2006, Sebastian grew his customer base, adding personnel, equipment, and more space for warehousing as well as expanded operations in flexo label printing, die cutting and sheeting.

In 2006, Atlantic acquired Caribbean Products and we gained incredible expertise in Sebastian as he helped to meet the demands of customers who were moving their manufacturing operations offshore. He oversees our work in medical products distribution as well as foam converting and films for sophisticated medical product applications. He is also hands-on with our work in the textiles industry, ensuring that we meet their needs for primary and secondary packaging equipment and materials.

Labels

Our Flexo label printing presses allow us to create a wide range of labeling options, from 7” to 10” blank labels or 3 to 6 color labels. We generate labels for customers that can be used for internal packaging and shipping and for retail use.

The textiles manufacturers, medical/pharmaceutical manufacturers, and vegetable and fruit producers we work with, in particular, require labels as a critical component of their packaging and the capabilities we have with our presses ensure that we can meet their demands.

Atlantic has also invested in the area’s only core tube winders to support label markets.

We are here in the Caribbean to meet the comprehensive packaging needs of major consumer manufacturers. Our ability to create a wide range of labels at our Dominican Republic facility means our customers will get the products and materials they need, when they need them.

 We don't hesitate to make significant investments in equipment or personnel to support our customers if there is volume and a strong partnership to back it up... When you work for a company that cares about you, it makes you want to give your best everyday and the customer sees that.

Cores

Local Supply Source for Cores

Atlantic is proud to be the only packaging enterprise in the Dominican Republic Free Trade Zone that can offer services and materials from core tube winding equipment.

By investing in core tube winders and creating a local supply source, Atlantic was able to eliminate added time and cost for our customers who were previously reaching out to the states for these products.

In the first four years of Atlantic Caribbean, we expanded our core tube operations by 300% with plans to continue growing that business by adding additional, different core machines. This allows us to produce a wide range of cores to be used in plastics, plastic extrusion, label markets, textiles, and other core operations.
