Our Corrugator
To guarantee Wertheimer Box's position as a cost efficient and service-oriented supplier of corrugated packaging to our customers, we challenged ourselves to achieve more control over the availability and cost of our corrugated raw material.

We accomplished this goal by forming, along with eight other leading corrugated packaging manufacturers in the Midwest, Independence Corrugated.

Independence Corrugated is a three shift, 24 hours per day manufacturer of corrugated sheets. It produces both ECT and Mullen board grades in both single and double wall flute profiles. Independence Corrugated is equipped with a state of the art 110 inch corrugator, which specializes in cost efficient short runs and economical large run orders.

As a true independent box company, Wertheimer Box also maintains strong relationships with a number of other carefully selected sheet vendors as well, so that we are always able to offer our customers uninterrupted availability, and the widest range of corrugated products and services possible.

With the capability of receiving corrugated sheets overnight or even the same day, Wertheimer Box is uniquely able to consistently satisfy its customers requirements.

Sustainability & Recycling
The corrugated packaging industry is, and has been the leader in manufacturing natural, recyclable packaging for many years. Corrugated containerboard is predominately made from wood pulp, a sustainable, renewable, often-farmed resource using wheat or cornstarch to glue it together. It is recyclable, and biodegradable. In fact, 78 % of all corrugated is recovered for recycling, which makes corrugated the recycled leader in the packaging industry. Nearly 60 % of the energy used by the U.S. paper industry comes from renewable biofuels.

Wertheimer Box Corporation is certified to the SFI Certified Sourcing Standard (Sustainable Forestry Initiative). This ensures that the paper we use is acquired only from responsibly managed and renewable sources. In fact 93% of all corrugated is made with material supplied by SFI Program participants.

At least 35% of the total corrugated packaging Wertheimer Box produces is from 100 % recycled, paper (100 % post-consumer), with the remainder having a recycled content of 35% to 78% (52% to 69% post-consumer) depending on the paper grade and it?s producer.

Our plant uses water-based inks for our print operations. All of the corrugated trimmings, which are the largest waste by-product of our manufacturing process, are recycled. The plastic strapping used to package our product is recyclable.

We maintain membership in various packaging industry professional organizations, and subscribe to most industry publications, so that we are always up-to-date on the latest technologies and practices in our industry.

Wertheimer Box Corporation will continue to seek new ways to improve our performance in recycling, sustainability, pollution control, energy efficiency, and source reduction.
