KapStone Paper And Packaging

Headquartered in Northbrook, Illinois, KapStone is a leading North American producer of unbleached Kraft paper and corrugated packaging products. KapStone’s annual revenues exceed $3 billion. KapStone employs approximately 6,000 people.

KapStone Paper and Packaging’s mill in Longview, WA is a large integrated mill producing containerboard grades on five paper machines. The global containerboard market is highly competitive and capacity has increased recently in the U.S., so meeting all three goals is essential to a paper mill’s survival. KapStone’s technical team decided not only to use PARCview to implement centerlining but then to take things one step further, to use dataPARC and PARCview to reduce costs

“We make a lot of different grades of paper. In order to maximize the dollars for each run, we use dataPARC’s centerline tool to find ‘golden runs’ and those become our target each time we run a grade.”

Pami Singh, Director Process Optimization – Kapstone Paper

Case Study

Data Management at Catalyst Paper is on a Roll

dataPARC’s PARCview quickly showed its capabilities. Stability was improved in several key customer quality requirements. Internal process monitoring tasks were simplified with the aid of PARCview’s grade-based “Run Browser” and centerlining tools, along with the “Golden Run” concept.

Case Study

Domtar – The Leader in Innovating Fiber-Based Products 

When Domtar implemented dataPARC software in their Hawesville and Kingsport locations, results were immediate. dataPARC’s PARCview visualization software enabled the operators to receive and report information rapidly, reducing the need for manual data entry and eliminating reliance on custom methods. Because the results were so positive, PARCview was installed at all Domtar mill sites across the US and Canada.
