CPC Packaging was founded in 1986 and has 650 employees across nine factories in France and Germany. With sales of €140 million across Europe, CPC has provided a one-stop-shop offer of cartons, flexibles and labels for many years.
“We help our customers to anticipate key trends and changes in the industry – whether those are consumer-driven or key technology developments – and help them to adapt accordingly, by upgrading or evolving their packaging specifications from one product to the other,” said Jonathan Schor, the CEO of CPC Packaging. “For example, if they want to move from folding carton to flexible packaging, or from cut labels to self-adhesive labels, we can help them to achieve this by ensuring a seamless transition in terms of design and supply chain management.”
The company needed new die-cutters and a rotogravure machine. After research of potential suppliers, CPC turned to BOBST.
“I knew from the beginning it would make sense to buy the three die-cutters from one company, especially in terms of training, maintenance and servicing of the machines, but also in terms of the back-up between our plants,” explained Schor.
CPC is acquiring four machines, three of which are flat-bed die-cutters: NOVACUT 106 ER, EXPERTCUT 145 PER and MASTERCUT 145 PER for its Cartons Business Unit. All these machines are equipped with latest BOBST die-cutting technology.
Also part of the investment is a RS 6003C HS high speed gravure printing press. The machine features several leading-edge technologies, including BOBST’s unique TAPS (Total Automatic Pre-register Setting) system, which completes the pre-register procedure of all print units in just a few minutes at the touch of a button, whether it is a new or repeat job.
The machines will all be installed in different CPC Packaging plants during the second half of 2018.
