Eastman recognizes acetate yarn supplier Caraustar
May '10
Caraustar Industries, Inc.'s Kernersville, NC plant has been recognized by EASTMAN CHEMICAL COMPANY, a global supplier of acetate yarn, and awarded Eastman's Supplier Excellence Award.

To qualify for this award, the supplier must meet certain criteria including on-time delivery performance, conformance to specifications, and continual improvement with value-added projects.

"The Kernersville team supplied EASTMAN with yarn tubes in 2009 that met the criteria for the award, enabling us to successfully serve our customers' needs," said Jim Nanney, Superintendent of Acetate Yarn at Eastman.

Only about one and one half percent of the suppliers for EASTMAN in Kingsport, TN were selected to receive an award for 2009.

"Receiving the EASTMAN Supplier Excellence Award is a great achievement for the Kernersville Plant. It falls in line with our company's mission to be the 'First Choice' for paperboard packaging solutions," commented Chris Sexton, Kernersville Plant Manager.

Eastman's chemicals, fibers and plastics are used as key ingredients in products that people use every day. Approximately 10,000 Eastman employees around the world blend technical expertise and innovation to deliver practical solutions. The company is committed to finding sustainable business opportunities within the diverse markets it serves. A global company headquartered in Kingsport, Tennessee, USA, Eastman had 2009 sales of $5 billion.

Caraustar Industries, Inc. is one of North America's largest integrated manufacturers of 100% recycled paperboard and converted paperboard products. The company is a socially responsible corporation, is committed to environmentally sound practices and is dedicated to providing customers with outstanding value through innovative products and services. Caraustar has developed its leadership position in the industry through diversification and integration from raw materials to finished products. Caraustar serves the four principal recycled boxboard product end-use markets: tubes and cores; folding cartons; gypsum facing paper and specialty paperboard products.
