Corrugated board

Welch Packaging


Corrugated boxes are one of the most common packaging methods. They are inherently environmentally friendly, have a high strength to weight ratio, and protect products throughout the shipping process. All cardboard boxes start out as corrugated board which has at least three layers of paper, two smooth sheets sandwiching a fluted layer.


Most custom packaging box manufacturers must purchase their corrugated board from a corrugated sheet supplier. With the installation of our state of the art corrugator, we have the manufacturing ability to make our own corrugated boards. This allows us to create corrugated boxes specific to our customer’s needs without worrying about the corrugated board market fluctuations.
