Tubes, cores and edge protectors

Corex is the cores, tubes and edge protectors division of VPK Packaging Group. Their strategic network of 29 production sites, spread across 16 countries, from Europe to Asia and North America  produce coreboard for various applications, as well as a range of converted products: spiral and parallel wound cores and tubes, edge protectors and consumer packaging.

We produce the appropriate tube or core exactly for your needs and specifications, with diameters up to 635 mm and wall thicknesses of 1 to over 20 mm.
