All boxes manufactured by Acme Corrugated Box are made to order.
While both test for box strength, they go about it in different ways. ECT, short for Edge Crush Test, measures vertical compression strength along the edge of a package, focusing on compression and stacking strength. The Mullen Test measures bursting strength, or the force required to burst a hole through corrugated material.
Our Flexo Folder Gluers and Die Cutters can print between one and four colors. We utilize an in-house ink kitchen which lets us mix our own custom colors. This allows for rapid turnaround of special inks and successful matching of critical colors.
We service Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, and Delaware – an approximate 200-mile radius of our plant in Hatboro, Pennsylvania.
A minimum Acme Corrugated Box order is 500 pieces on average (machine depending).
We are both FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) and AIB (American Institute of Baking) certified. FSC certifies our products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social, and economic benefits. AIB certifies our packaging materials comply with applicable food safety requirements.
Depending on the board grade, the paper we use ranges from 100% virgin to 100% recycled.
We have one facility located in Hatboro, Pennsylvania – about 25 miles outside of Philadelphia.
We deliver all our products via our own trucks.
We have a high-speed 110” corrugator, installed in 2022.
We have both Quality Assurance and Continuous Improvement departments that monitor everything from incoming raw materials to outgoing boxes.
Our fully-equipped lab lets us perform internal testing to verify strength characteristics of board we produce. Testing abilities include, but are not limited to, Score Bend, ECT, Flat Crush, Ring Crush, Cobb, Drop Testing and Caliper, and Compression.
