Tembec Paperboard Group and Hawk Converting announce the launch of a “Quick Turn Program” featuring Kallima® Coated Cover for Kallima® franchised distributors in selected markets. Beginning February 1, 2016, the Kallima® product line will be available for JIT deliveries (2-4 days). This program will be serviced out of two locations: Hawk Converting; Lewisburg, TN and Northwoods Converting, LLC; Beaver Dam, WI. The Kallima® Quick Turn Program is designed to provide customers greater flexibility with no minima on orders, special sizes, folio, digital and large format sizes.
“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 is a tremendous complement to our current efforts in the Midwest region”, stated Adrienne Jung, Marketing Manager, Tembec Paperboard Group.
The Tembec Paperboard Group and Hawk Converting partnership comes at a great time for paperboard consumers and customers. “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). It will be competitive in the market and we will stand behind it!”, said Kathryn Hawkins, Managing Partner Hawk Converting.
In making this announcement, Re Kelso, Managing Partner Hawk Converting added, “The Northwoods Converting partnership allows us to expand our successful relationship. Our collective mission is to take care of our customers. All three companies (Tembec, Hawk and Northwoods) share that common goal. We want to help our customers meet or exceed the toughest of delivery demands of their customers.”
