Verso Corp. Introduces New Coated Web Product Lineup
Verso Corporation, a leading North American producer of printing papers, specialty papers and pulp, recently introduced its new coated web product lineup. Verso offers a breadth of quality coated web brands, including No. 2, No. 3 and No. 4 grades in coated freesheet and coated groundwood, as well as supercalendered SCA+ and SCA grades. Verso’s lineup includes some of the most distinguished paper brands in the industry, such as Sterling Ultra, ArborWeb Plus, Influence, ArborWeb and Liberty, as well as two new brands, Focus and Balance.
Verso’s two new brands, Focus and Balance, will be produced to the same high standards as its other brands. Focus, a No. 3 coated groundwood paper, is one of the best values in its category, offering cost savings without compromising performance, brightness or image reproduction. It delivers great appearance and value for quality-conscious commercial printing, catalog and magazine applications. Balance, a No. 4 coated groundwood product, is a highly versatile and refined paper, striking the optimal combination of brightness, printability and cost. It is ideal for special edition publications and is a brighter, whiter alternative to a typical No. 5 product.
“Verso’s coated web product offering is an important component of our overall printing papers, specialty papers and pulp product portfolio,” said Mike Weinhold, Verso’s senior vice president of sales, marketing and product development. “We have the know-how to offer world-class products and the experience to offer world-class service. Our new coated web offering provides a unique combination of quality, consistency, reliability and flexibility that is very appealing to customers.”
Verso demands that its mills meet strict quality standards to ensure delivery of consistent products day in and day out. All Verso facilities are located in the United States and its mills and warehouses are strategically located near large print markets. “Verso’s strategic locations and large manufacturing base ensure our customers are reliably supplied,” Weinhold said. “We have the flexibility to manufacture the same products on multiple machines, which means customers can get the paper they want when they need it. We are committed to going the extra mile to earn and keep our customers’ loyalty.”
