Mac Papers Expands Castle® Packaging Tape Product Line

Reinforced water-activated tape added to offering of acrylic and hot melt carton sealing tapes

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (January 28, 2020) – Mac Papers, one of the largest merchant distributors in the southeastern United States, has added reinforced water-activated tape to its exclusive Castle portfolio of packaging products. The company launched the Castle packaging brand in 2018 with the introduction of acrylic and hot melt carton sealing tapes, and subsequently announced the addition of hand and machine stretch film.

“We’re extremely pleased to once again expand our exclusive Castle brand product portfolio and offer a full lineup of carton sealing tapes,” said Chris McCabe, vice president of packaging at Mac Papers. “Offering our own packaging materials product line reflects Mac Papers’ continued commitment to providing customers with best-in-class packaging solutions.”

Castle reinforced water-activated tape bonds instantly and securely to virgin and recycled fiber cartons. The superior bond helps ensure protection of contents from the elements, tampering and loss. Carton fiber is irreparably damaged when Castle water-activated tape is removed, providing evidence of attempted tampering. The water-activated tape is ideal for use on two-strip sealing lightweight cartons and on average weight cartons up to 40 pounds.

In addition to Castle packaging products, Mac Papers stocks an expansive selection of packaging materials from industry-leading producers at its facilities throughout the Southeast.

“We’re proud to partner with packaging producers that are leaders in the industry in terms of quality and innovation,” added McCabe. “Our packaging specialists take a customer-focused approach in assessing needs and are experts at sourcing materials that meet specific packaging requirements, including added protection and materials reduction.”

The company also specializes in automated packaging equipment and technical service as well as packaging services and solutions, from kitting and fulfillment to design and e-commerce.
