• In 1978, Calvin Frost founded Channeled Resources Group to purchase and process paper fibers for the paper industry.
  • By 1985, the company’s focus shifted to processing non-recyclables — coated, treated, and/or laminated papers and films.
  • By the late 1980’s, Channeled Resources had become the world leader in developing alternatives to landfills and incineration for non-recyclables with specific focus on pressure sensitive adhesive laminates and silicone coated release liners.
  • In 1994, we purchased GMC Coatings, a silicone coating manufacturer that specializes in paper release liners. This acquisition enabled us to focus on first quality, custom coated release liners for the medical, envelope, tapes, and adhesive and sealant markets.
  • In 2014, Atlas Adhesive Tape, manufacturer of specialty tapes, became a division of the company, further expanding our capabilities to meet the growing needs of our customers.
  • Today, with facilities in Chicago, Wisconsin, and Ontario, we offer cost-effective products including release liner, pressure-sensitive roll label stock, and industrial adhesive tape.
