Industrial Tubes and Cores

Sonoco has been manufacturing tubes and cores for a variety of applications for most of its 100-plus years.

Building upon this expertise, we are now the world’s leading provider of total converting solutions for customers around the globe. Our experts are available to assist with designing the best product for use in a wide variety of applications. One recent innovation is our Intellicore™ roll tracking system, using the world's first radio frequency identification (RFID) enabled cores. The system allows customers to automatically identify, track and locate their products at any point in the supply chain.



We are committed to being a leader in sustainability and put a great deal of focus on the three Rs: reduce, reuse and recycle. Most of the paperboard used to make Sonoco's fiber cores is 100% recycled, and much of this recovered material is from used tubes and cores taken back from customers.
