Don’t Cut Corners: New Corner Board Machine Up and Running in Houston
April | 2022

Badger Paperboard is pleased to announce our newest corner board machine is now available to serve customers out of the Houston facility. 

While average lead times for corner board around the country hover between 12-18 weeks, the new machine will cut Badger lead times to 3-4 weeks.

 “The functionality and the technology of the new machine – the precision with the lengths and caliper and the quality of the 90-degree angle – are second to none,” said Chad Kravick, vice president of Badger Paperboard. “It’s an amazing piece of technology and equipment in the packaging world. The throughputs and the quality of the board have never been seen before.” 

The machine, on average, is four times faster than traditional corner board lines. It will join its counterparts already running in the Wisconsin and California Badger facilities.

Kravick said he anticipates major changes to the corner board market ahead for the region.

“In California, the addition of the corner board machine really changed that market on the West Coast. We hope to do the same thing in Texas and in the Southwest,” he said.
