About the Containerboard Division

Back in 1961, when the world was just starting to understand the importance of resource protection, Kruger was one of the first companies in North America to manufacture 100% recycled containerboard.

More than half a century later, the Montréal Containerboard Mill carries on that tradition and has taken it a step further with the recent addition of a cutting-edge linerboard machine at the Trois-Rivières Mill. Its new high-tech PM10 production line, operated by a team of highly skilled professionals working smart to deliver the finest recycled lightweight linerboard in North Ameria, features advanced containerboard manufacturing technology, an integrated OCC plant and sustainable manufacturing processes.

We offer customized corrugated packaging solutions for companies of all sizes right across North America.

Focus on Health and Safety

Recognizing that our employees are key to our continued success, we make it our priority to provide a safe and healthy work environment for all our employees.

Caring for the Environment

Our commitment to the environment goes all the way back to 1961, when we became one of the first companies in North America to offer recycled containerboard.
