Flexographic Packaging Company to Install W&H’s 8-color PRIMAFLEX CM
LINCOLN, R.I.—Windmoeller & Hoelscher Corporation announces the sale of a 52˝ (1,320 mm) 8-color PRIMAFLEX CM printing press to first-time customer, Flexographic Packaging Company (FPC), of Waupun, Wis. The press will be shipped to FPC’s Waupun facility in September 2007 for installation this fall.
FPC President David Puente explained that the company is focused on supporting the smaller accounts which large suppliers might pass up. The new PRIMAFLEX will allow FPC to serve more customers with the capabilities of this press. “We have more and more requests for process work to be done, and this press will allow us to do the quality process work that will enable us to compete with the market,” he said. “With the gearless PRIMAFLEX we will be able to achieve almost any repeat requested by the customer.”
The new press will be running a wide range of substrates, including PET, met pet, Poly prop, nylon, and paper for the food industry and other packaging needs.
