RockTenn sets world production records at Kentucky facility

Thursday, Apr 16, 2015

RockTenn’s Nicholasville, Kentucky, folding carton team set two world records. The team earned the first record by printing more than 9 million sheets in one month, and the second by printing more than 357,000 sheets in one day. Both records were set on the seven-color, 64″ KBA Rapida plus coater press, as the company said in the press release received by Lesprom Network.

“We salute the Nicholasville team for its outstanding success in setting these world production records,” said Craig Gunckel, RockTenn’s executive vice president of merchandising displays and folding carton.

To put the 9 million sheets achievement in perspective, the number of average size sheets printed and laid end-to-end equals the length of more than 142,500 football fields or three cross-county flights from New York to Los Angeles.

RockTenn is one of North America’s leading providers of packaging solutions and manufacturers of containerboard and paperboard.
