Royal Paper Box Brings Third 41˝ KBA Press on Board
Royal Paper Box, a folding carton converter based in Montebello, Calif., is maintaining its dedication to quality and efficiency by adding its third six-color, 41˝ KBA Rapida 106 sheetfed press plus coater. The firm, which recently celebrated its 75th year in business, prides itself on catering to a globally diverse customer base, including the high-end cosmetics and demanding bio-medical packaging markets.
“We feel the addition of a third KBA press significantly enhances and complements our pressroom,” Jim Hodges, president of Royal Paper Box, says. “Our success over these 75 years has been built on our commitment to our customers and continuing to invest in new technology. We’re constantly seeking to deliver the best work in the most efficient manner. We have a sterling reputation for on-time delivery and consistent quality, order after order."
For Royal Paper Box, which is a global leader in the packaging field, a third new KBA Rapida board press equipped with a host of measurement and quality control features and UV drying technology brings numerous advantages. These include a powerful ability to print at high speeds, top-flight automation bringing efficiency gains in makeready and running speeds, and an improved production schedule.
“Moving into our 76th year of business, our company has been committed to our customers' needs,” Hodges says. “Our focus is to produce ‘packaging that sells your product’ while we keep our pledge to quality, service and speed-to-market.”
Founded in 1940, Royal Paper Box has been an industry leading provider of folding carton packaging solutions that have met the needs of its globally diverse customer base. Hodges’ father, Clary, along with a group of investors and employees, bought out the founder in 1956. Jim Hodges joined the company after serving in the Marines. Together the father-son team expanded the company with a sterling reputation of consistent high quality, on-time delivery, state of the art facilities, trained personnel and outstanding customer service. Today the company sits on a sprawling 10.5 acres in a 172,000 sq. ft. facility with 210 employees.
