PM10 OFFICIAL DEDICATION!
On October 24, the Kruger Packaging team has officially dedicated Paper Machine No. 10 (PM10), which was completely rebuilt to manufacture 100% lightweight and high-strength linerboard at its Trois-Rivières Mill.
A new lightweight so powerful you’d think it was a heavyweight
Introducing XTRTM, the perfect linerboard that delivers the high strength-to-basis-weight ratio that will enable corrugated box producers to boost bottom lines and exceed customer needs. And it’s backed with over 50 years of experience that have made Kruger an industry leader.
Who knew something so light could hold so many benefits?
The cost benefits really stack up
The North American corrugated box plants can capitalize on a lightweight linerboard that delivers equivalent (or higher) strength properties at a greater value. In fact, less corrugated materials and high-tech specs mean you’ll save on paper costs without sacrificing your high standards of quality.
We believe a smaller footprint leaves a bigger impression.
We are taking our innovative solutions to a whole new level by developing a 100% recycled linerboard that proves once again that sustainability and high quality are not mutually exclusive.
