Green Bay to Chicago belt humming to nonwovens conversion

Converting Influence, a group of converter-manufacturers, has announced its declaration that the Green Bay-to-Chicago Converting Corridor is America's strongest. “In fact,” says Dennis Curtin of Press Color Inc., “many manufacturers believe the Green Bay-to-Milwaukee area could also make that claim.”

Those polled among the 100 businesses in the group agreed universally that these areas are the U.S. hot spot for converting products, from tissue to labels, foil laminated pouches to wipes, napkins to wall paper and so much more. Converted products are made from paper, film, foil, laminates and nonwovens roll goods.

The strength of this lineup of converters from Wisconsin to Illinois is not always recognized because so many companies are quiet contract converters working to deliver products for large national brand partners.

In the tissue sector, for example, these converters are especially strong in this region. In addition to American Custom Converting producing tissue/poly laminates such as painter's drop cloths, many of these converters use tissue substrates.

They include Graham Medical, provider of hospital patient disposables; Larsen Converting, printers of tissue overwrap; Midwest Specialty Products, serving restaurant and other niches; Nichols Paper, printer-converter; Sellars Wipers, converters of wipers and absorbent disposables; Tufco Technologies, producer of wipes and printed products; Waldan Paper, with tissue wrap printing and converting and many other companies.

Precision Paper Converters is another example of a tissue industry converting specialist. The company recently purchased a new tissue converting line consisting of an interfolder, servo-driven sheet cutter, a fully automated cartoner and related material handling equipment.

Other companies in the group convert films and laminates, nonwovens and supply the industry, from equipment to inks, construction and engineering services, and more.

Converting Influence is a group that provides news and information through meetings, online listings and e-mailers about materials including paper, film and nonwovens, plus processes such as rewinding & sheeting, folding, packaging, coating & laminating, flexographic printing, equipment and associated services for converters.

“Anyone who thinks manufacturing is on the decline in the U.S. should come to our meetings and expo here in Wisconsin,” says Susan Stansbury, Converting Influence Director.

The group will host a May 21 event at Fox Valley Technical College in Appleton. The half-day networking, displays, presentations and lunch costs $60 and is open to the public.
