CSCMP Lehigh Valley Roundtable Presents:
Packaging Corporation of America Corrugated Box Plant Tour
Friday, October 18, 2019
You are often told to think outside the box. Now is the time to think about the BOX! Packaging Corporation of America is opening the doors of its Trexlertown PA Full-Line plant operation to tell and show us more than just how a box is made.
PCA is currently the third largest manufacturer of containerboard in the US with 6 Paper Mills and over 90 converting facilities. This facility is ISO 9001:2015 certified and GFSI Compliant as well as SFI (Sustainable Forestry Initiative) Certified. They can provide virtually any product size and style in variations from the traditional brown corrugated box, as well as high-graphics packaging, and creative high graphic displays.
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. On the tour you will see and hear about their, process checks & quality systems, and the box production area including corrugators, printer, die cutters, and flex-folder/gluer.
