Pratt Industries has a long record of engineering the best containerboard machines to meet the precise packaging needs for a wide range of markets. We use the most modern technology to manufacture advanced containerboard grade structures which had often been previously unavailable.
Now, with the company’s 100% recycled paper mill in Valparaiso, IN., Pratt is proud to continue that tradition by offering the most versatile range of lightweight, high-performance containerboard ever produced in North America.
Pratt’s lightweight machine was specifically designed to make strong lightweight liners and mediums from 21 to 40 pounds, making it a perfect fit for 32, 29, 26 and 23 ECT corrugated packaging. It also makes grades in basis weights ideal for E- and F-flute as well as microflutes for doublewall combinations.
The machine has numerous quality-enhancing features, including specific wet end, pressing and drying equipment using the latest technologies.
Our Shreveport mill also produces strong lightweight liners and mediums from 18 to 35 pounds.
Pratt Industries’ commitment to lightweight packaging is resonating within the marketplace as an expanding customer base seeks to optimize its packaging needs. Unlike Pratt, most paper producers can’t make lightweight linerboard efficiently or at competitive prices. That’s why many American manufacturers are 15-20% over-packaged compared to the corrugated specifications used in Western Europe.
But with our new capabilities, we’re encouraging all of our customers to re-evaluate their current packaging specifications. Let Pratt Industries’ creative designers help you construct the “perfect package” for innovative cost-reduction and environmental sustainability.
Pratt Industries is leading the drive to lightweight packaging. Why not see what we can re-design for you?
Remember: LightWeight is the RightWeight!
