Newark Group Changes Newark BCI Division Name to Newark Custom Paperboard
January 15, 2013
The Newark Group today announced that Newark BCI (historically known as Book Covers, Inc) will now be known as Newark Custom Paperboard.
"This is a positive change for The Newark Group", said Frank Papa, President and CEO of The Newark Group. "As electronic media becomes more popular, it has affected hardcover book binding and other related markets. Even though the binding market is still very active, we found additional uses for our specialized laminating and paperboard converting equipment. This was the impetus for the name change. It better reflects the direction of the division and the company as a whole."
"We consider people talent and innovation to be our best strengths", added Jim Carbine, Senior Vice President of Newark Custom Paperboard. He added "This powerful combination allows us to work with customers to develop custom paperboard products for their businesses. The name change is a reflection of the innovative world we are thriving in."
The Newark Custom Paperboard division provides the U.S. and Canada with the largest variety of laminated products available today to include hard-bound trade and educational books, loose-leaf file, puzzle, yearbook, photo-album, game and other associated products. New product developments have included Fiberwrap®, a strong, thick industrial packaging product and NewEdge®, a unique, hinged edge protection product.
