Packaging Corporation of America Corrugated Box Plant Tour

You are often told to think out side the box or even in the box.  Now is the time to think about the BOX!  Packaging Corporation of America is opening the doors of its Reading PA full-line operation to tell and show us more than just how a box is made on Friday March 9th.  PCA is currently the third largest manufacturer of containerboard in the US with 6 Paper Mills and over 90 converting facilities.  PCA Reading is one of the most technically advanced high volume combining facilities in the Industry.  They can provide virtually any product size and style in variations from the traditional brown corrugated box, as well as high-graphics packaging.  This operation produces packaging for a wide range of industries from auto parts to candy.  As part of the presentation you will receive an overview of PCA, Containerboard Market Overview/Industry trends, recycled vs. virgin linerboard impacts on the supply chain, shelf impact of graphics, and Right boxing for the Right purpose. On the tour you will see and hear about their product sample lab, process checks & quality systems, and the box production area including corrugators, printer, die cutters, and flex-folder/gluer. You will need to complete a Non-disclosure and PCA’s GMP compliances. The documents will be emailed to you prior to the event for review. The registration list will be reviewed by PCA and if they feel you are in a competitive situation you may be asked not to attend, and you will have your registration fees refunded
