Kenosha’s Colbert Packaging gives LakeView students a close up view of business

Kenosha paper folding cartons manufacturer Colbert Packaging Corporation recently hosted 40 students and faculty from LakeView Technology Academy at its Kenosha facility.

Led by Director of HR and Corporate Compliance Jeff MacDougall, Colbert employees conducted tours of the complete manufacturing process of a folding carton, beginning at the design, prepress and printing stage and continuing through the multiple manufacturing steps to packing and preparation for shipment.

Visiting the maintenance shop, students learned about maintaining the strict standards for quality, safety and cleanliness required to serve Colbert’s pharmaceutical, healthcare, and consumer packaging customers.

The tour group saw the baler room, where paper scrap from the manufacturing process is baled for recycling. As paperboard is 100% recyclable, zero paperboard scrap from Colbert’s operations goes into a landfill.
