Our mission is to provide value to our customers, employees, and shareholders through the manufacture of a product or delivery of a service in an ethically and environmentally responsible manner to ensure long-term, profitable growth of the company.
Facility Lighting Upgrades
A systematic approach to lighting upgrades (2 facilities to date) includes upgrading from 400W Halide to T-8 Fluorescents utilizing the local utility rebate program.
Motion-sensitive lighting is used in low-traffic administrative areas.
Industrial Energy Savings
Through Kansas City Power and Light, our Arrowhead facility is part of the utility’s interruptible power program.
In our Southern Missouri Containers facility, we salvage waste heat from the corrugator and warm part of our converting operations.
Water Use Efficiency
Enhanced chillers in our Springfield Corrugator Plant reuse process water for efficient singlefacer operation. We also preheat boiler feed water on the boiler stack. (Delta T of 90° F).
We are proud to be the largest subscriber to City Utilities’ Wind Current program. We buy more wind energy than any other industrial user in the utility’s service area.
We use recycled and virgin kraft linerboard in the manufacture of our corrugated packaging. On average, the recycled content is 38%.
We have access to four 100% post-consumer content mill sources, and we can provide a package with 100% recycled content if required by the customer.
Wax Replacement Options
We've worked with one of our containerboard suppliers to produce and promote several wax replacement grades of paper that (in the proper application) show significant promise. We have been able to formulate inks to print on these substrates that are resistant to water and UV exposure.
