The amazing success story of corrugated board began more than 130 years ago. In 1871 the American inventor Albert Jones patented the first corrugated board. It consisted of a curled paper glued to a web of flat paper. Thus arose a low-cost, lightweight, and stable packaging material that would soon conquer the world of logistics. Why? Corrugated board uses only a minimum amount of material to provide a maximum amount of protection. It is also lightweight and features excellent machine processing capabilities, but flexibility is its most decisive advantage. Fruit and vegetable boxes made of corrugated board can be tailored to suit your individual requirements or be delivered in standard, easy-to-stack sizes.
