SLITTING & REWINDING

From that roll, we have the equipment and expertise in slitting and rewinding to create paper rolls in the width and diameter that meets our customers’ requirements.
Every industry has particular demands for their paper packaging products, from paper grades and widths, to coated or uncoated, printed or unprinted. Atlantic can handle the demands for creating any of these products, whether they will be used in manufacturing, in packaging, or as an end product.
