Province of Ontario Announces Essential Services: A Message from Our President

Dear Atlantic Team Members:

As of March 24th, we continue to have no known cases of COVID-19 within our facilities. This is due to the diligence of all our employees in following the guidelines created to keep our workplace safe. Thank you.

Both the Canadian and United States governments have declared that our business and products are essential services. This is because no food, medical supplies, personal protective equipment, home delivery of products or food can make it to those who need it without our packaging. As things progress we become even more critical to the health and safety of our country and people. Information on businesses declared essential services can be found at the following website: https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.news.ontario.ca/opo/en/2020/03/list-of-essential-workplaces-2.html

There is universal consensus that the biggest risk to getting the virus is exposure to people with active symptoms. Atlantic Packaging is keeping our workplaces safe by:

  • Not allowing people with symptoms or who have recently travelled in our facilities in accordance with government guidelines
  • Not allowing employees to cross between departments and between plants
  • Controlling plant access to visitors and contractors
  • We are reducing the number of individuals working in our facilities, where possible, to allow for increased social distancing

The risk of getting the virus from surface contamination is much lower. Despite the lower risk of surface contamination, we have implemented massive cleaning protocols to do everything we can to limit this risk and make the workplace the safest environment that most people encounter during their day.

Additional measures that are being implemented across our facilities are as follows:

  • Increasing the frequency of cleaning and sanitizing of common areas and high touch points such as door handles, control screens and railings on all shifts
  • Frequent cleaning of forklifts and other shared equipment
  • Engaging 3rd party commercial cleaners to augment our own sanitizing initiatives
  • Ensuring adequate supply of hand sanitizer for regular personal use
  • Working with teams to sanitize their work space by wiping down the working surfaces with the appropriate cleaning products. This sanitization between or at the start of shifts acts as a firewall between shifts dramatically reducing the potential for spread of the virus via surface contamination.
  • Eliminating congestion areas in the plant and allowing for proper social distancing by:
    • Staggering the start time of the shifts by department where possible and segregating shifts during change overs to limit interactions
    • Staggering lunch times and limiting the number of people in the lunch room at any point in time
    • Eliminating the need to clock in and out of the plant

As we know “mind not on task” is one of the major risk factors for injuries. With everything going on, and as we worry about our families / friends, it is very easy to not have our mind on task and risk a serious injury. It will take all of us working together (just not too closely) to stay safe.

Thank you for everything you are doing every day. Stay safe and continue to help and watch out for each other. Our diligence in keeping our workplaces safe to provide the essential services needed by Canadians is critical to supporting our communities and families during the pandemic.

Sincerely,

 

Dave Boles

Atlantic: Essential Service Provider – A Message From Our President

To Our Valued Employees,

Amidst all the announcements of businesses temporarily shutting down operations, I know employees are wondering why Atlantic Packaging continues to operate. Atlantic Packaging is a critical part of the supply chain for our food, pharmaceutical and consumer product goods customers who are responding to the crisis by ensuring the availability of goods necessary to respond medically and economically. The demand for our boxes for those items has risen dramatically.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has identified packaging manufactures as an essential service for the continued supply of food and other essential products. We, along with the Canadian Corrugated & Containerboard Association (CCCA), have reached out to the Canadian government to similarly identify our industry as an essential service in Canada. We are relying on the clarification provided by other jurisdictions to guide our decision making during the pandemic until our governments provide that guidance.

Our ability to continue normal operations plays a critical role in supporting our customer’s ability to provide the essential goods required by our communities and families. That means we have a special responsibility to maintain our normal work schedule. Your work here is a key part of our nation’s response to this pandemic crisis. This is why your health and safety is so important. We continue to take aggressive measures to prevent the introduction of COVID-19 to our facilities.

I appreciate the efforts of all of our employees. We thank you for your commitment and dedication during this difficult time.

Sincerely,

Dave Boles

President

Outlined below are the ways in which packaging manufacturers are defined as critical.

FOOD AND AGRICULTURE

  • Food manufacturer employees and their supplier employees—to include those employed in food processing (packers, meat processing, cheese plants, milk plants, produce, etc.) facilities; livestock, poultry, seafood slaughter facilities; pet and animal feed processing facilities; human food facilities producing by-products for animal food; beverage production facilities; and the production of food packaging.

TRANSPORTATION AND LOGISTICS

  • Manufacturers and distributors (to include service centers and related operations) of packaging materials, pallets, crates, containers, and other supplies needed to support manufacturing, packaging staging and distribution operations.

CHEMICAL

  • Workers supporting the safe transportation of chemicals, including those supporting tank truck cleaning facilities and workers who manufacture packaging items.
  • Workers supporting the production of protective cleaning and medical solutions, personal protective equipment, and packaging that prevents the contamination of food, water, medicine, among others essential products.
  • Workers who support the production and transportation of chlorine and alkali manufacturing, single-use plastics, and packaging that prevents the contamination or supports the continued manufacture of food, water, medicine, and other essential products, including glass container manufacturing.

Atlantic Packaging: Official Statement on COVID-19

Updated as of March 19, 2020

Dear Valued Employees, Customers, Partners

As we all continue to navigate the uncertainty of COVID-19, our employees, customers, and partners remain our priority. The Atlantic Packaging leadership team is meeting continuously to assess and appropriately respond to the crisis as it evolves, to adjust our operations to mitigate supply chain risk, and to support the health and safety of everyone involved.

What are we doing to limit the potential of the virus affecting our facilities?

As part of the risk and contingency review, key operations and roles within our facilities are set up for the ability to operate from alternate sites and/or remotely from home. We have restricted travel and in-person meetings between our plants to reduce the risk of COVID-19 spreading between our facilities. Our employees are being asked to utilize digital tools for meetings, rather than in person meetings wherever practical.

Within the production facilities, we have taken every precaution possible to reduce the chances of having an affected employee entering the facility and to ensure that if an undiagnosed employee enters the facility, the risk of the virus spreading is limited. In order to limit the chance of an affected employee entering the site, we have undertaken education programs with all employees on importance of personal hygiene to prevent the spread of the virus and the need to avoid the workplace if not feeling well.

To avoid the potential spread of the virus within the facility, there has been increased availability to hand sanitizers within the workplace and our cleaners have increased use of disinfectants. Atlantic has also increased the frequency of the cleaning cycles of all common areas and working surfaces on production equipment.

Atlantic has also taken steps to minimize the interaction of employees in the production environment (EI: employees are operating on staggered breaks/lunches and implementing safe distance working practices). This ensures that if an employee is ultimately diagnosed with the virus, the number of potentially affected employees will be limited.

Lastly, Atlantic is currently working on implementing an employee screening protocol to insure that employees with symptoms are not permitted access to the buildings. This will also include sanitization stations directly inside the facility, where employees will be asked to disinfect upon passing the screening process.

What are we doing to prepare for potential situations within the plants?

Atlantic Packaging is a multi-plant organization with redundancy in both the paper and box manufacturing plants. Our business is vertically integrated and as such is not reliant on outside raw materials including paper supply. We have the ability to produce our products in more than one plant, and we have box plants in different geographical regions capable of serving our customers on a contingency basis. Here are a few of the measures we’re taking.

  • Reviewing safety stocks and inventories for key items and increasing where necessary
  • Build our inventory of finished goods, where possible, to try to minimize the impact on customers in the event one of our facilities is affected
  • Increasing our production capacities at all of our box facilities to more easily shift work between facilities if necessary, ensuring minimal impact on our customers
  • Implemented clear protocols in the event an employee at one of our facilities is diagnosed with COVID-19

Is there a risk that product Atlantic is shipping is unsafe?

We do believe that the product we produce is safe and in fact much safer than other packaging containers. The production of paper and corrugated sheets is done at a very high temperature and will kill most pathogens. Once the sheet is being converted into finished goods, our production facilities are outfitted with highly automated equipment that ensure the employees have no reason to touch the product.

According to the CDC, there is no evidence COVID-19 is spread by coming into contact with contaminated surfaces, but researchers have tested common home and hospital materials. Compared to other surfaces like plastic and stainless steel, COVID-19 had a much lower survival rate (24 hours or less) on corrugated packaging.

Although the risk that our product would come into contact with the virus is low, the potential for the virus to survive on these surfaces is extremely unlikely. The typical inventory cycle for our products from production to use in our customers facilities is several days, which is much longer than current estimates of the virus’s lifespan on corrugated packaging surfaces.

Although there is no way to eliminate corona virus risk or make absolute guarantees on supply chains not being affected, we wish to assure our customers we have taken steps to mitigate risks to our supply chain from COVID-19 and maintain our ability to satisfy our customer’s needs given this global event.

We will continue to communicate any changes and updates as this situation evolves.

Dave Boles

Digital Printing Finds Fit with Craft Brewer Packaging

The unique value proposition provided by digital print technology, continues to change the way marketers approach new product launches. There’s probably no better example of this then within the booming Craft Brewing industry. Here’s a short video that showcases just how digital has become a strategic fit for Collective Arts Brewing.

Atlantic Packaging Announces the Creation of a New Sheet Feeder in the Chicago Region

Toronto, CanadaJanuary 20, 2015 – Atlantic Packaging Products Ltd. (“Atlantic”) today officially announced the creation of a new joint venture (“JV”) sheet feeder located in Carol Stream, Illinois (a suburb of Chicago). The new joint venture, BlackHawk Corrugated (“BlackHawk”), will be co-owned and operated by Atlantic and its JV partner StandFast Packaging of Addison, Illinois. Atlantic’s investment in BlackHawk will exceed $40 million and create in excess of 100 new jobs in the region. BlackHawk is expected to be fully operational by late 2015.

“As a privately held company with a strong balance sheet and a history of successfully green fielding our own paper mills and corrugated plants in Canada, Atlantic is prepared to move quickly and offer new JV opportunities to independent box plants across several US regions that will create multiple profit centers for our partners and a clear path to full vertical integration that the traditional sheet feeder models simply cannot support,” said Dave Boles, President at Atlantic. “We are not just looking for sheet supply contracts, but are also seeking to build true partnerships that will thrive and grow with us in the US markets.”

Given the rapid consolidation trends currently occurring in the US and Canadian corrugated packaging markets, Atlantic’s expansion into several competitive US markets is a critical part of its long-term growth strategy. Atlantic has chosen G2 Capital Advisors LLC of Boston, Massachusetts as its exclusive strategic advisor to lead the execution of its US growth initiative. Chicago is the first of several joint venture initiatives that Atlantic is currently in the process of developing across the Midwest and Northeastern regions of the US.

“We have spoken with a significant number of independent box plants located across the Midwest and Northeast and there is clearly an appetite for them to secure their long-term paper supply with a reputable, quality supplier who offers competitive market pricing,” said Jeffrey Unger, CEO at G2 Capital Advisors. “Additionally, those business owners we have spoken to who have a more sophisticated understanding of the markets and a well-defined growth strategy are intrigued by what Atlantic can offer them; a true long-term partnership with an investment model that can expedite and support their growth through multiple profit centers, beyond just sheet supply, in times of economic uncertainty within these markets.”

Whitby Paper Mill Adds Jobs Thanks to the Help of Ontario’s IEI Program

AtlanticPackaging

Apr 03, 2014

Atlantic Packaging’s Whitby paper mill adds 80 new jobs

Provincial incentive program supports local industrial expansion

WHITBY — Atlantic Packaging is upgrading its Whitby mill to manufacture 100-per cent recycled paper products, creating 80 new jobs in the community.

The enhancements come as a result of the Province’s Industrial Electricity Initiative program, which allows Ontario to better manage its electricity system by encouraging industrial companies to maximize the use of available electricity supply.

“I’ve always felt that good energy policy is good economic policy and I can’t think of a clearer example than the event that we’re celebrating here today,” said Ontario Ministry of Energy Bob Chiarelli after touring the Whitby facility at 1900 Thickson Rd. S. on April 2.

“As one of Ontario’s large energy consumers, Atlantic Packaging is eligible for the Industrial Electricity Program, an initiative designed to maximize our strong electricity system (and) benefit economic development and job creation in Ontario.”

As an eligible company, Atlantic qualifies for significantly reduced electricity rates in exchange for expanding or building new facilities and creating new jobs.

Atlantic Packaging was established in 1945 and functioned as a recycled newsprint mill in the 1990s before being shut down in 2010 due to a decline in demand for newsprint. In 2012, the company launched a project to re-purpose the mill by converting it to produce 100-per cent recycled, lightweight paper used to manufacture high-performance corrugated packaging products.

“As you can imagine, converting a mill of this magnitude required a significant investment on our part and with the help of programs like the Industrial Electricity Incentive program, we’ve been able to create over 100 jobs, contribute to the local economy and keep Atlantic Packaging on the forefront of innovation in North America,” said Irving Granovsky, chairman of Atlantic Packaging.

Helping industrial companies expand and create jobs is part of the government’s economic plan to create jobs for today and tomorrow, added Mr. Chiarelli.

“Our recently initiated IEI program has made it possible for Atlantic to upgrade its Whitby mill to manufacture 100-per cent recycled, lightweight paper products … it’s the first of its kind in North America to create this particular specialty product and create 80 new jobs in the process,” he said.

“The company benefits and the community benefits from the increased employment.”

Atlantic Packaging Announces Plans to Open First High Performance Lightweight Recycled Paper Mill in North America.

Atlantic's Whitby Mill

Atlantic’s Whitby Mill

Scarborough, Ontario, 11/15/2012 – Atlantic Packaging Products announced today, plans to re-open their Whitby Ontario Mill in March of 2013. The former newsprint mill has been upgraded with technology that will allow Atlantic Packaging to produce 100% recycled lightweight paper used to manufacture high performance corrugated packaging products.

Recycled lightweight paper has been around in Europe for many years. The paper is made using less fiber and is enhanced for strength. The result is a much lighter, stronger and more sustainable product. President of Atlantic Packaging, Dave Boles adds “In North America, the term lightweight has been primarily used in reference to the basis weight of the paper, with little or no emphasis on strength. What we’re talking about is a disruptive technology that is capable of producing low basis weights (lighter paper) with sustainability and strength characteristics unlike anything in corrugated packaging today.” Dave continued, “Sustainability objectives from large retailers are driving the industry forward, and soon Atlantic will be in a position to provide our customers with the most sustainable corrugated packaging option available in North America.”

The Whitby Mill is the 2nd Atlantic paper mill to open in the last 6 years. In 2006 Atlantic opened the New Forest Mill as part of a joint venture with Mitchel-Lincoln, the leading corrugated packaging company in the province of Quebec.

About Atlantic Packaging Products

Atlantic Packaging Products is a vertically integrated packaging products company that has been in business since 1945. Atlantic’s key business divisions including Corrugated and Flexible Packaging, Displays, Supply and Inventory Management, Mills and Recycling, provide customers with a total packaging solution.
