PCMC Hosts Successful iMpact 2010 Event
GREEN BAY, Wis.—Paper Converting Machine Company (PCMC) hosted iMpact 2010, a symposium for the flexographic printing industry, at historic Lambeau Field, home of the Green Bay Packers, on June 23 and June 24. iMpact 2010 was held exclusively for PCMC’s flexible packaging printing customers and unveiled PCMC’s technologically advanced printing press, Fusion.
iMpact 2010 was a tremendous success, welcoming more than 300 visitors from around the world to PCMC’s global headquarters in Green Bay. “It was a great experience for me. Having the ability to see an actual press in operation as well as to meet with vendors at tabletops afforded me an opportunity I cannot get by meeting people at my facility,” stated Chris Hall, Printing Manager for SPR Packaging. “Being able to speak with the engineers that designed each aspect of the press was also a great value.”
Guests enjoyed an opening day presentation and inspirational words from Bob Chapman, Chairman and CEO of Barry-Wehmiller Companies, which highlighted the leadership principles and practices that drive PCMC and its sister businesses. Participants learned how PCMC is different from the average manufacturing company and is striving to secure its reputation as a great American machinery company.
The event also showcased PCMC’s new Fusion flexographic printing press, the latest result of a company-wide cultural and lean process improvement effort that focuses on waste reduction and enhanced efficiency. Key features and benefits of the Fusion include:
