Our Counce mill has two linerboard machines and is PCA’s highest-volume mill, producing 1.087 million tons in 2015. The No. 1 paper machine primarily produces grades 42# through 90#, including many high-performance, wet-strength and other specialty grades. The No. 2 paper machine was completely rebuilt in 1996 and is a world-class, state-of-the-art, lightweight linerboard machine, producing grades from 31# to 35# high-performance.
PCA annually produces over 3.7 million tons of kraft linerboard (the outer layers of a corrugated container) and semi-chemical corrugating medium (the fluted center layer) for PCA’s own converting facilities, as well as for numerous domestic and international customers. All of PCA’s mills are Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®)-certified.
