We’re not just a sheeting facility anymore. In recent years, we’ve added digital sheeting, large format sheeting, an embosser, and a laminator and we recently expanded our capacity tremendously through the acquisition of three International Paper converting facilities, making Atlantic the largest converter of bleached paperboard in North America.- Geoff Searcy
ATLANTIC ACQUIRES IP PAPER CONVERTING PLANTS
Atlantic has emerged as the largest converter of bleached paperboard in North America. We serve customers nationally with commercial converting facilities located throughout the southeast, northeast, midwest, and southwest.
Commercial paper converting serves a broad customer base. We work with paper merchants to convert product, primarily bleach board, and provide quick turn service as well as carton and skid inventory. We also work directly with customers on folding carton accounts, providing custom sizes, quick turns, and expansive inventory programs.
High speed sheeter lines and multi-shift operations allow us to react quickly according to our customers’ needs. The precision press-ready sheeting, rewinding and trimming are our core functions as we work from our on-hand inventory and with a dedicated transportation and logistics network.
We work to make things easy for our customers.
While our products and capabilities lead the industry, it is the service commitment of our people that sets Atlantic Converting apart. Instant price quotes are available with a simple phone call, and our individual personalized service is available from the initial inquiry though delivery of the finished product.
We build personalized relationships with our customers and develop highly customized programs to meet whatever particular challenges or needs they may have. It’s all about ease of doing business. We’re always going to be flexible and willing to do whatever it takes to service the customer.- Mark Scott
Atlantic Packaging’s state-of-the-art commercial converting division headquarters is located in Charlotte, NC. The over-250,000 square foot facility serves as a downstream finishing department primarily for bleached board (SBS) mills and offers tremendous capacity and unequalled commitment to quality and service.
We purchased our first precision sheeter in the mid-1980′s and in 1990, demand had grown enough that we purchased our second sheeter at that time. In 1992, we added 2 more and growth in our paper converting division has continued since then, most recently with the purchase of 3 International Paper (IP) converting facilities in North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Michigan.
Our modern, multiple line capacity and multi-shift operation allow us to be flexible in production scheduling and reacting to the changing market and priorities of our customers. Extensive first quality board inventory and our dedicated transportation network, put skids at the door of commercial printing, tag and label, and folding carton customers throughout the U.S. – on time, every time.
With our employees striving for excellence in safety, quality, and performance, we will provide our customers with the best converting services and products available. Our sense of urgency in everything we do will keep Atlantic the best converting service in the industry.- Jim Hanson
Precision sheeting, rewinding, guillotine trimming, and now laminating are our core functions, and, within that scope, converting special sizes and quick turns are at the heart of our strengths.
Our laminating and embossing capabilities allow us to produce casino grade playing cards. Our laminating services cover paper to paper, including an opaque sheet from StopLight, paper to board, and board to board.
Atlantic maintains a massive on-site inventory of first quality domestic paperboard from major North American mills such as MWV and International Paper, offering a full caliper range of SBS C1S and C2S. Our extensive inventory also includes a wide variety of roll widths, allowing us to minimize waste for the custom converting of special sheet sizes. Atlantic converts sheet sizes from small digital sheets run on digital presses, all the way up to huge 100” long sheets for large format printers.
In addition to SBS paperboard, Atlantic converts tobacco board as well as coated and uncoated fine paper grades. Also available are industrial grades such as CUK (coated unbleached kraft) from Graphic Packaging and MWV, CRB (coated recycled board) from various mills, and KraftPak (a low density/high yield uncoated natural kraft printable board grade) from KapStone.
All of Atlantic’s converted papers are first quality product, backed by our manufacturers, their technical teams, and by Atlantic’s own in-house technical staff with years of experience in both converting as well as commercial printing. Our mission is to exceed our customer’s expectations in the performance of our products, the reliability of our service, and the integrity of our commitments.
Atlantic has evolved from operating a single commercial paperboard converting facility in North Carolina to becoming the largest converter of bleached paperboard in North America with converting locations throughout the U.S. We’ve been able to grow and develop to this point because of the care we take in our work, the quality of the product we start with, and the quality of the converted papers that we deliver.
Atlantic Packaging has shown its commitment to sustainability and assisting customers in achieving their sustainability goals. We’ve done this through qualifying for and implementing certified chain-of-custody programs that guarantee paper product coming from certified and responsibly managed forestlands that is traced throughout our process from raw material receipt to finished goods delivery.
These certification programs include Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC® ) FSC® C016743; Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC); and Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI).
Our fine paperboard converting operation has expanded significantly in recent years, with room and opportunity for further growth.
Atlantic has physical commercial converting operations in North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Dallas (see Our Locations). Together with our robust logistics program, we are able to offer national coverage and provide further convenience and reliable service to our customers.
We look forward to serving you with the best quality, care, efficiency, and professionalism in the marketplace.
