Success has tradition

At Beillard Tubes Carton S.A. we stand for continuity and customer satisfaction – and have already done since 1835. Founded back then under the name of D‘astrovigne, we initially produced hat boxes. Soon afterwards, we began manufacturing paper cores. Since 1993 we have been part of Paul & Co and the Kunert Group. Our stated aim: A long-term, trusting relationship with you, our customers. We have gathered experience over the years and have grown with you. 90 people work in our plants in La Talaudière and St. Hilaire de la Côte in France. In order to be able to offer short lead times and the best possible products, we have become specialised at our two production sites in La Talaudière and in St. Hilaire de la Côte. For example, our site in La Talaudière specialises in manufacturing spirally wound cores, while the experts in St. Hilaire de la Côte above all manufacture convolute wound cores, angular edge protectors and Circoflex. In addition, however, you can also access the entire product line of paper cores and edge protectors of Paul & Co of course. We will be happy to advise you concerning all your requirements.

With regard to the production of paper cores and edge protectors, we see ourselves not only as a mere production facility, but as a customer-oriented service company. For us, you are the priority. You set standards, which we convert into solutions together.
