Paper Mills

Pratt operates the most modern containerboard system in North America, having built four of the last five containerboard mills in the U.S. Together, our mills save more than 85,000 trees every day by providing 100% recycled paper to our box-making plants.


Pratt Industries mission to provide the industry’s best packaging solutions begins with our five, 100% recycled paper mills – the most innovative and modern containerboard system in North America.

Our continued commitment to lightweighting of containerboard enables our customers to optimize their packaging. After all, why pay for packaging you don’t need?

Pratt’s clear understanding of present and future packaging demands allows us to utilize world-best technology to manufacture advanced grade structures in lighter basis weights… and often in both liner and medium specifications that were unavailable until the company started its first 100% recycled mill in Conyers, Ga. during the mid-1990s.

With its sister facilities in New York City, Shreveport, LA, Valparaiso, IN, and Wapakoneta, OH it’s part of a paper-making system unlike any other in North America, producing containerboard with both outstanding strength properties and print surface characteristics in the finished corrugated board.

In fact, our mills manufacture the most versatile range of lightweight containerboard ever produced on this continent, thereby helping an increasing number of companies meet their sustainability goals without sacrificing their high-performance packaging requirements.

All five mills operate under strict environmental standards and together they save more than 85,000 trees every day by converting discarded paper collected from America’s streets, businesses, schools and communities into high-performance liners and mediums.

What’s more, every ton of paper they produce saves:

  • 3.3 cubic yards of waste diverted from landfills
  • 7000 gallons of water
  • 4000 kWh of Power
  • 1.00 Tons of CO2

Pratt Paper, a Pratt Industries company, is continually driving the development of papermaking technology to ensure its products perform to the highest industry standards – while at the same time protecting the environment.


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 new 100% recycled paper mill in Wapakoneta, OH, 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 Commitment

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 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!
