Tembec Paperboard enhances deliveries in Midwest with local inventory
By Cindy Macdonald
Tembec Paperboard Group and Hawk Converting are launching a “quick turn program” featuring Kallima® coated cover for Kallima-franchised distributors in selected markets. The program is designed to provide customers greater flexibility with no minimums on orders, special sizes, folio, digital and large format sizes.
Beginning February 1, the Kallima product line will be available for JIT deliveries (2-4 days) from two locations: Hawk Converting, Lewisburg, Tenn., and Northwoods Converting, Beaver Dam, Wis.
“Tembec prides itself on partnerships that deliver greater value to the marketplace and we are pleased to announce this new opportunity with Hawk Converting. The quality, speed and flexibility now offered from two locations are a tremendous complement to our current efforts in the Midwest region,” stated Adrienne Jung, marketing manager, Tembec Paperboard Group.
Kathryn Hawkins, managing partner, Hawk Converting, commented: “With the consolidation in the paperboard market, we are being asked daily for viable alternatives. This partnership provides the paperboard market that viable option. We are maintaining a full range of calipers and roll sizes for the Kallima product line, which will be stored locally (in both locations).”
Tembec manufactures lumber, pulp, paper, and specialty cellulose, from operations in Canada and France.
