Corrugated boxes (please - not cardboard) have always figured prominently in my working life.  
I have worked for three companies which provide machinery and supplies to the corrugated industry.  
For 15 years I owned Meuse Marketing Communications, an agency which did a lot of work for companies in that industry.

I closed Meuse Marketing Communications in 1999 and left the corrugated industry 2002, but I still keep in contact with friends in the business. I'll leave this page up for the time being.

A random selection of machinery used in the production
of corrugated board and boxes

 

 

This is a corrugator; a line of machines which converts three rolls of paper into corrugated board.

 

 

Here is the kraft paper being moved
from roll storage to the corrugator to
begin the process.

This is a flexo folder gluer. It takes sheets of corrugated board and prints, slots, scores, folds and glues the sheets into finished boxes.

Here are the bundles of finished
boxes being moved to shipping.
