Board Cutting

Our cutting equipment is some of the most modern in the industry. It ranges from automated, high speed machines to specialty machines designed for quick set up and responsiveness. More importantly, our management philosophy is keenly focused on speed and quickness. Our success is, and has been, entirely driven by our ability to provide a level of service that challenges marketplace norms.


In April of 2018 Dedicated Converting Group purchased the assets of Phoenix Converting Company. Phoenix Converting was a long term independent paperboard convertor, started and operated by the Todd family, with particular capabilities in foam padded panels. With the acquisition, we were fortunate to employ many Phoenix employees representing untold years of proven expertise. Following the acquisition, our Union, MO operation was moved into the Phoenix facility, consolidating the two. This newly combined facility, matched with our existing capabilities in Plainwell, MI makes us one of the Nation’s preeminent independent paperboard producers. Our capabilities have expanded and are available across a broad range of board grades; providing our customers with responsiveness and value.
