Atlantic Vice President of Paper Converting, Geoff Searcy, discusses the recent expansion of the Charleston Paper Converting Facility. In this one location, Atlantic is converting more than 4,000 tons of paper and paperbaord each month. Between three plants, Atlantic is converting well over 100,000 tons annually with the capacity for up to 130,000 tons.
Here are some of the recent additions to the Atlantic Paper Converting operation:
- Added Digital Sheeter – this one scales down to an 8.5″ x 11″ size on paper and paperboard
- Expanded Large Format Capabilities – installed equipment that can do a 60′ x 100′ sheet to cut off
- Added Embossing Equipment – this can put a linen finish or textured finish on either paper or paperboard
- Added a Laminating Machine – this can paste two sheets together for paper to paper, paper to board, board to board, and films to board.
The quality control at Atlantic is driven by the need to exceed the expectations of both demanding suppliers, whom Atlantic is representing, and demanding customers serving large, international industries including pharmaceutical, food, and cosmetics. Both the supplier side and the customer side will conduct audits of Atlantic facilities to ensure that processes comply with quality quality guidelines.
Atlantic Converting is investing in the expansion of the Charleston facility due to the proximity with major paper supplier Kapstone and the Port of Charleston. These are key elements in the success and growth of our converting operations.
