Atlantic Corporation of Wilmington, North Carolina, has acquired Coastal Corrugated, a 35-year-old family owned sheet plant located in North Charleston, South Carolina. Coastal Corrugated manufactures large format corrugated boxes for various manufacturing segments. In addition, it manufactures custom protective packaging components for the automotive industry and its tier one suppliers.
Atlantic Corporation, a top tier private company in North Carolina, is a diverse packaging and equipment distributor to consumer products manufacturers throughout North America, the Caribbean, and Central America. The company operates 18 regional facilities east to west as Atlantic Packaging.
“South Carolina has invested heavily in recruiting automotive manufacturers to the state and our company is increasingly aligned as a premier partner to these facilities,” says Wes Carter, President of Atlantic Corporation. “Coastal’s ability to design and fabricate protective packaging solutions right here in the low country brings great value and sensible logistics. The North Charleston location connects with our newly opened Packaging Solution Center in Charlotte and the logistics of our existing 10 facilities across the Carolinas and Georgia.”
