Atlantic Packaging is honored to be a part of the Greater Wilmington Business Journal’s profile of family owned businesses in the area.

In their profile, Packaged For Generations, the Journal talks with Atlantic CEO Rusty Carter and President (and Rusty’s son), Wes Carter. They discuss how the family business was started by Rusty’s father, Horace Carter, and how it grew from a weekly newspaper to the powerhouse packaging company that it is today.

Tracing Atlantic’s roots from the Tabor City Tribune and Horace winning the Pulitzer Prize, to textiles, packaging, acquisitions, manufacturing, package testing, automation and e-commerce fulfillment, it becomes clear how this family-run company has evolved with the ever-changing business landscape and emerged as a leader in the packaging space, particularly when it comes to technical, data-driven packaging solutions.

Atlantic has seen tremendous growth in the industry verticals that we serve, in our geographic footprint, and in the development of our scientific approach to packaging as demonstrated everyday at our Packaging Solution Center. Our leadership team, led by Rusty and Wes, is continually looking for opportunities to grow and evolve in order to best serve the needs and priorities of our customers.

With such a rich family history, we take time as a company to honor this history while always looking to the future and to how we can grow, improve and, in Rusty’s words, to “rise to even higher levels.”
