What makes us different?
Reliability is the key attribute of a valuable outsourcing partner. Our customers rely on us to consistently produce the quality they want represented by their brand and to be available and on time when they need us.
Flexibility is being capable of making many sizes and styles of facial tissue and being responsive to the needs of the customer. Our capacity and flexibility, along with our ability to manage quick change-overs means we can satisfy a range of customer needs without any disruption to their business.
Our size and focus on facial tissue allow us to change quickly according to customer requirements. Our machines are designed for quick change-overs and our team members pride themselves on their adaptability in order to adjust to our customers needs.
We convert facial tissue and related dry wipes. PPC is the only company in North America with a focus on this category exclusively. This focus comes with expertise and flexibility not found at our competitors that consider facial tissue a peripheral category or one of many. Several customers utilize PPC to make their “specialty” items while they focus on the high volume facial tissue items they do best.
Quality & Safety
At Precision Paper Converters we recognize that in order to consistently produce and package a product of top quality it is essential to have a Good Manufacturing Program (G.M.P) incorporating Hazard Analysis of Critical Control Points (H.A.C.C.P). This program includes all the necessary processes and procedures to prevent our products from becoming adulterated with microbiological, chemical, or physical contaminants that could cause injury or illness to the user.
Our quality program is used to assure PPC’s product quality meets or exceeds our customers expectations. We strive to ensure customer satisfaction, optimize base material utilization, and continuously improve the quality of our products.
Each year Precision Paper completes a NSF Food Safety Supplier audit. This audit is to assist our organization in evaluating and identifying ways to manage and further improve our Food Safety Practices and Responsibilities. Our last audit was completed in December 2016.

All practical steps are taken to build and maintain a safe and healthful workplace. We maintain a Safety Program designed to train all employees to follow safe practices and to recognize and correct unsafe working conditions.

Safety is part of each employee’s job. Active participation and adherence to the Safety Program is a condition of employment at PPC and no employee is required to work at a job he or she knows is not safe. Therefore, we work to make every workplace safe by detecting and correcting unsafe working conditions, as well as the detection of unsafe work practices. Safety takes precedence over shortcuts and production demands.
