Containerboard Containerboard

PCA annually produces about 3.5 million tons of kraft linerboard (the outer layers of a corrugated container) and corrugating semi-chemical medium (the fluted center layer) for PCA’s own converting facilities as well as for numerous domestic and international customers.


  • PCA operates six containerboard mills in the United States — Counce, Tennessee; DeRidder, Louisiana; Filer City, Michigan; Tomahawk, Wisconsin; Valdosta, Georgia; and Wallula, Washington.


  • Kraft linerboard is produced in grades from 26# through 90# and designed for use in virtually any corrugated or non-corrugated application.

  • Semi-chemical corrugating medium is available in 23# through 40# basis weight.


  • Our containerboard is also available in a variety of specialized grades for demanding container applications where superior strength, tare weight or moisture resistance is needed.


  • All mills are ISO 9001- and Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®)-certified.
