About Axiom Corp.

Axiom Corp., operating through its majority owned subsidiary, PaperNuts Corporation, is a global focused developer and marketer of innovative and environmentally friendly packaging solutions. PaperNuts Corporation owns proprietary technology and intellectual property originally developed in Finland that provides an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional protective packaging options that are often very harmful to the environment. PaperNuts delivers a loose-fill packaging solution that competes directly with polystyrene foam plastic "peanut" fillers, bubble wrap, air pillows, crumpled paper, foam-in-place, and corn starch peanut products. 

PaperNuts are a cost-effective green alternative to competitive fillers, made from 100% recycled paper that was destined for landfill, and are both biodegradable and fully recyclable after use. PaperNuts also provide superior product protection, are clean and easy to handle, non-polluting, and low in particulates. The "PaperNuts Converter" machine used to create PaperNuts requires only 10 sq. ft. of floor space to operate and gives small, medium, and large scale businesses the capability to produce on-demand on-site packaging that reduces the shipping and storage costs associated with competitive products.
