Valley Converting

SWAC Meeting

February 16, 2012


History

History:

  • Founded by Gino Biasi in 1973.

  • Based in Toronto, OH.

  • Started the company with two employees.


Converting operation

Converting Operation:

  • Valley Converting would purchase rolls and sheets of chipboard from the Toronto Paperboard Mill and convert them into smaller sizes, pasted, tied, scored, and long sheets.

  • Converting operation grew to over 10 employees working six days a week


Manufacturing operation

Manufacturing Operation:

  • Toronto Paperboard mill encountered serious corporate problems in the mid 80s and closed in September 1987

  • Gino Biasi personally bought the mill in May 1988

  • Started making chipboard on #1 Paper Machine by July 1988 and on the #2 Paper Machine in January 1990


Manufacturing operation1

Manufacturing Operation:

  • Due to economic conditions we shutdown our #2 Paper Machine in November 2000

  • We currently manufacture over 84 tons a day and 21,600 tons annually on our #1 Paper Machine

  • Chipboard is made up of 100% recycled fiber


The process

The Process:

  • We purchase the majority of our recovered fiber from paper scrap dealers

  • We also purchase from local business and regional waste programs

  • Two grants from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources in ’04 and ’07 for a total of $500,000. These grants enabled us the ability to build the Recycling Center and purchase the necessary cleaning equipment for the recovered fiber.


Recovered fiber scrap

Recovered Fiber (Scrap):

  • We purchase Old Corrugated Containers (OCC), Newsprint, Mix, and Boxboard Cuttings from Brokers, County Recycling Programs, Local Businesses, and the General Public

  • The makeup of our chipboard:

    • OCC - 15%

    • News - 15 %

    • Mix - 20%

    • Boxboard - 50%

  • Scrap comes generally from Ohio, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania and within a 200 mile radius of our plant. Freight limits how far out we can go out and get scrap.


  • Recovered fiber scrap1

    Recovered Fiber (Scrap):

    • In 2011, we purchased 21,700 tons of scrap

      • Scrap Brokers - 16,700 tons

      • County Recycling Programs - 2,300 tons (Jefferson/Belmont - 1,700 tons)

      • Local Businesses - 1,100 tons

      • Daily Scrap Purchases - 1,600 tons

  • Cost of scrap:

    • 2010 - $ 89/ton ($1,730,000)

    • 2011 - $125/ton ($2,700,000)


  • Challenges

    Challenges:

    • Manufacturing and converting chipboard is a capital intensive industry 

    • Our four biggest expenses are the following:

      • Scrap Paper

      • Wage / Health Benefits

      • Electric

      • Natural Gas 

  • Chipboard market is maturing and not a lot of new innovations that require use of chipboard

  • Manufacturing quality chipboard in the most cost-effective manner and increasing this production on a yearly basis
