Georgia-Pacific Success Story: Class is in Session
How Georgia-Pacific’s Packaging Fundamentals Supports Packaging Education Among Customers
From design to distribution, there is a lot to understand and consider when it comes to corrugated packaging. At GP, we know that our customers come to us with varying levels of knowledge about corrugated packaging and we want to help them build a greater understanding of what we do and how we can help them.
To help our customers learn more about corrugated packaging, Georgia-Pacific opened its doors to our customers to attend our Packaging Fundamentals course. This course is conducted four times per year and covers our entire manufacturing process from wood chips to delivery of the packaging. Topics include:
- Environmental, production and design impacts
- Industry trends and regulations
“Georgia-Pacific’s Packaging Fundamentals course has been a tremendous resource for us. From production supervisors to customer service, this course has helped us to quickly identify and solve problems, making better decisions for our customers.”Bob Butterfield

GP wants customers who may not be as knowledgeable about packaging to have a better understanding of the process, which helps us work more collaboratively on innovative packaging solutions. Participants who may be new to the industry or the business leave the course with a basic working knowledge of the operations and business environment, giving them a jump start in their new role.
A better understanding of the fundamentals of the business provides the basis for more productive and focused interactions with our customers. As a result, implementation of projects improves and our customers, ranging from plant workers to presidents, appreciate GP’s focus on their success.
