American Packaging Corp. to Add Comexi ACOM Gravure Press
The Comexi Group has announced the sale of a nine-station gravure press to American Packaging Corp. (APC). The press will be operational in February 2017. Working with APC's operation's team to understand their needs, Comexi will custom build the company's next ACOM Platinum gravure press with the latest advances in registration control, quick changeovers, 100% defect detection, increased production speeds and improved efficiencies.
Comexi and APC have enjoyed a long collaborative relationship beginning in 2006 when they added the first ACOM RG Platinum press. Since then, APC has purchased a total of four state-of-the-art ACOM presses.
APC continues to invest in the latest state-of-the-art technology, providing it with a competitive advantage as it continues to diversify its customer portfolio. APC has three manufacturing Centers of Converting Excellence and a Packaging Innovation Center to effectively support several industries including dry foods, seasoning and mixes, coffee and tea, refrigerated dairy and fresh produce, frozen products, confectionary, medical, personal care, nutraceutical, hard to hold products, liquids and other specialty items.
“This press will be the fourth rotogravure that Comexi ACOM has supplied American Packaging," Jeff Koch, executive VP of APC, said. "What keeps bringing us back to Comexi ACOM is their high level of quality and service along with competitive pricing and offering the latest in machine technology. We have developed a very positive, trusting and collaborative partnership over the past decade."
