PaperWorks Industries, a leading North American integrated full-service packaging provider, has committed substantial resources to enhance printing capabilities, with several packaging projects underway at locations across North America. The addition of advanced printing equipment, a major facility expansion, and new printing capabilities will allow PaperWorks to meet growing demand, expand customer offerings, and maximize packaging manufacturing efficiency.
“We are strongly committed to investing in the future of PaperWorks and its customers,” according to Lisa Pruett, senior vice president, sales, PaperWorks Packaging Group. “With a focus on acquiring the latest in packaging technology, expansion, and enhanced product offerings, we can exceed customer expectations and meet increased demand as we continue to grow.”
Going operational in the spring of 2012, PaperWorks installed one large-format Flexo press, to help increase production speed, enhance print quality and reduce waste. In addition, a second large-format sheetfed offset press was brought online to provide new printing options, decrease lead times and improve color quality.
A new 240,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art line expansion was added at the Baldwinsville, NY facility, greatly increasing PaperWorks’ printing capacity. In addition, more than doubling in size from 45,000- to 105,000-square-feet, PaperWorks’ Greensboro, NC facility underwent a major expansion to meet customer demand and increase the range of customer packaging options. Finally, a new air handling system was installed to support PaperWorks’ sheeting capabilities at a separate facility.
“New packaging technology and expansion projects are underway as part of our continued efforts to provide our customers with increased manufacturing efficiency,” says John Hartwell, executive vice president, PaperWorks Packaging Group. “These ongoing customer-specific efforts will establish PaperWorks as a leading supplier of streamlined, cost-effective packaging options for a variety of applications.”
