Coastal Corrugated, Inc. opened its doors to the Charleston, South Carolina area in March of 1987. Until then, Charleston had never been home to a direct manufacturer of corrugated packaging. Jim Bozard (right) and two partners envisioned a packaging company that could fulfill its customer’s high quality packaging needs from concept through final delivery.
Their vision proved providential as the company experienced rapid and sustained growth throughout the decade to follow. This prompted the purchase of land and the building of a new and expandable facility in 1996. This, coupled with the purchase of additional state-of-the-art machinery, facilitated its ability to meet new production, warehousing and shipping needs.
The Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce named “Coastal” as one of its “Emerging 10” companies in 1997. From this elite group of companies, Coastal Corrugated, Inc. won top honors by being selected as the Chamber’s “Small Business of the Year” for 1997-1998. These awards were based on exceptional growth rate in sales, integrity and high standards of quality. At the awards ceremony, the company was said to have differentiated itself from its competitors by exemplifying superior customer service and by paying attention to detail.
In 1998, Mr. Bozard along with several other partners from North Carolina created Pinnacle Corrugated, LLC and built a cutting edge “sheet-feeder” in Landis, North Carolina, using the latest industry technology. This newest technology corrugator supplies “Coastal” and its other partners with the only virgin kraft corrugated produced in the Carolinas. In fact, the quality of this fiber material has proven so superior, that many customers have chosen to use lighter grades, thus reducing their packaging costs. This strategic position has fostered the company’s continued focus on superior quality and care.
In the summer of 2011, CCI broke ground on a 40,000 sq ft addition to its facility, which has given way to opportunities for fulfillment and inventory growth. Expanded shipping capabilities and additional equipment have fostered continued growth.
From then until now, the monitoring of ever changing product trends has driven the company to purchase newer, more efficient machinery, thus opening new horizons in packaging to include plastic corrugated processing, triple wall conversion, contract packaging services, as well as product fulfillment and repackaging ventures.
Coastal Corrugated, Inc. is in the packaging business for the long haul and understands that the best way to build its future on solid ground is by building better packages for its valued customers everyday.
