Verso Releases New PAPER@WORK™ Brief

Flexible Packaging: Anatomy of a Special(ty) Relationship

MEMPHIS, TN--(Marketwired - Oct 20, 2015) - Verso Corporation (OTCQB: VRSZ), a leading supplier of printing papers, specialty papers and pulp, today released Flexible Packaging: Anatomy of a Special(ty) Relationship, the fifth installment in its popular PAPER@WORK™ series. This brief explores Verso's 40-year-plus relationship with American Packaging Corporation (APC) and examines keys to success in the flexible packaging market.

In consumer packaging, brand is everything and paper is a brand builder. Companies in this highly competitive realm know print consistency is critical to building and maintaining their brands. That signature red -- or blue or yellow or metallic gold -- has to be the same each and every time, across each and every product and package. This is why printing surface is so important and why a strong, collaborative supplier relationship is crucial to success.

"This new brief delves into the successful Verso-APC relationship," says Jason Handel, Verso Group Vice President of Specialty, Pulp and Product Development, "but also touches on what makes any customer-supplier relationship work, that is, a mutual understanding of goals and what it takes to achieve them together as a team."

"APC is a trusted provider in the packaging industry and it is very important for us to have a collaborative relationship with all of our suppliers," says Jeff Huber, APC Director of Corporate Purchasing. "Working with Verso on this PAPER@WORKbrief highlights our shared values of quality, innovation and commitment."

PAPER@WORK™ is an ongoing series of briefings from Verso Corporation which details a spectrum of important topics impacting the world of specialty papers.
