Innovations

Newark is a recognized leader in innovative paperboard packaging solutions. We serve industries ranging from lighting to construction. We specialize in addressing problems in the shipping, storage and packaging industries. We pride ourselves on our ability to develop innovative paperboard solutions that help customers to operate more efficiently while creating a more resource-efficient environment.

Unlike other companies that create products and then try to identify markets for them, Newark engineers its products based on the needs of its customers. Here are some of our most recent innovations.

Industrial Packaging

A window covering manufacturer was experiencing product damage in storage and shipping.

  • Newark created a one-piece, self-folding Fiberwrap® solution with protective ends that provided all the protection they needed.
  • Our Fiberwrap® solution grew to become the standard in the window blind industry and the solution in other industries where linear products often needed to be secured.

Edge Protection

A siding manufacturer needed more substantial pallet protection for its large, flat products.

Newark developed NewEdge® Guards; a puncture-resistant, impact-absorbing solution that protects the product in shipping and storage.

A customer in the forestry industry was laboring with automatic banding problems.

Newark created FiberStraps®; a flat, internally-hinged strap protection solution that lowered costs directly and through improved efficiencies.

Storage and Shipping

A lighting company needed a better solution for securing its product in shipping.

  • Newark developed a die-cut packaging system from laminated paperboard designed to secure a single light in a single package.
  • This solution has since been modified for other glass manufacturers both within and outside of the lighting arena.

Consumer Packaging

A consumer products packaging manufacturer was experiencing warp problems with micro-flute.

Newark developed NewGen®, an economical, low-density, high-stiffness solidboard solution made with 85% post-consumer recycled materials. It has the added advantage of offering excellent printability and enabling production at higher press speeds.

Building/Construction

A construction industry customer told us of problems in cutting concrete forming tubes in the field.

Newark created our exclusive NewForm® concrete forming tubes with Cut-Away®, the only construction tubes with cut marks every twelve inches to greatly simplify field measurement.
