SupremeX Folding Carton Makes Investment in Seven-Color Rapida 105 PRO
When the Folding Carton division of SupremeX, one of North America’s leading envelope and packaging manufacturers, acquired Stuart Packaging and G2 Printing in the past two years, it made a strong statement to its customers and shareholders: it was accelerating into the thriving packaging market and positioning itself to be a leader in Canada and to the U.S. market.
In June 2019, SupremeX Folding Carton will accelerate its competitiveness and growth in the high-growth folding carton market with the installation of its newest press: a fully-automated UV-equipped 41”, seven-color Koenig & Bauer Rapida 105 PRO.
“We evaluated a wide array of press manufacturers but in the end, it was an easy decision to choose Koenig & Bauer,” says Stewart Emerson, President and CEO of SupremeX Inc. “Koenig & Bauer is an established leader and is celebrating its third century in business. We are confident that the addition of the Rapida 105 PRO to our current installed base of Koenig & Bauer presses will further enhance our capabilities, quality, competitiveness, and add much-needed capacity. Simply put, we believe that this press is exactly what we needed and is the best of the best,” Emerson added.
SupremeX Folding Carton was formed by the combination of Stuart Packaging and G2 Printing. Stuart Packaging was acquired in July 2017 while G2 Printing was purchased in May 2018. Together, these two highly respected businesses brought over 80 years of expertise and commitment to quality, service and flexibility to SupremeX. Today, SupremeX Folding Carton is leveraging the capabilities and capacity of its two folding carton operations in Laval and Montreal, along with its label plant in Laval to drive cost-effective growth.
The company has formed a reputation as a leading, eco-friendly provider of premium quality folding cartons in a one-stop-shop for folding cartons, labels and inserts. As a BRC and GMI certified printer, it is fully dedicated to achieving the highest control and quality standards and is trusted by an array of multinational and strategic industry leaders. In addition to its growing folding carton business, SupremeX is among the 5 largest envelope manufacturers in North America and operates in the rapidly growing e-Commerce Fulfillment Packaging and Corrugated Packaging markets.
“We remain focused on accelerating our double-digit growth in folding carton, label, corrugate, and e-commerce packaging products,” said Mr. Emerson. “We strive to be a ‘Best-in-class’ folding carton manufacturer through our excellence in quality, service, flexibility and by partnering with our customers to meet their ever-changing needs. The investment in our new Koenig & Bauer Rapida 105 PRO is a testament to this goal."
