Pregis announces the North American launch of its Sharp Packaging Systems® MAX-PRO 24 continuous bagging system. This latest model in the MAX-PRO line can handle a wider range of products and bag sizes making it ideal for fulfillment operations with a broad e-commerce offering. “When engineering the MAX-PRO 24, our focus was on creating a system that would help users maximize productivity and minimize labor costs. We think the MAX-PRO 24 delivers all that, and more, making it ideal for increasing volume demands being placed on e-commerce operations,” said Mike Menz, division president. The MAX-PRO 24 includes highly-advanced automated technology, new web handling features that simplify operations and automated pass-through settings, resulting in lower operating costs.
Georgia-Pacific is making a significant investment of more than $20 million at its plant in Lebanon, Tennessee. Its existing corrugator will be replaced with a new one to provide the plant with more throughput and provide customers with a better-quality product.
“This is as much an investment in our current and future customers as it is in our Lebanon operations,” said Rob Streeter, Georgia-Pacific’s area general manager. “This new technologically advanced corrugator will give us the ability to supply the independent and integrated box and display customers throughout the mid-South, with upgraded offerings such as two-sided high-quality print, including Georgia-Pacific’s Hummingbird® digital print, on a variety of fluting options for the converted board.”
The project will be conducted in phases through 2023 while the existing corrugator continues to operate. The planned startup of the new unit will be sometime in the first half of 2024.
