This operation produces packaging for a wide range of industries from auto parts to perishable foods, and candy to the Kitchen sink, always with an eye to a sustainable solution.

 As part of the presentation you will receive an overview of PCA, Container board Market Overview/Industry trends, recycled vs. virgin liner board impacts on the supply chain, shelf impact of graphics, and Right boxing for the Right purpose.
