“Our team is bringing world-class operating standards, the best in new technology, and a passion for making a difference to this flexo packaging manufacturer,” said Kevin Powers, president/CEO of Pak Solutions. “In the past two years, we’ve continued to make important investments that will make it even more competitive in the multi-billion dollar plastic packaging industry. We are continuing to diversify and expand our product line to other uses packaging solutions for food and medical applications. We’ll have an edge on larger competitors due to our willingness to fill custom orders, product innovation, and an ability to deliver products much faster than others.”
“The new Koenig & Bauer Flexotecnica is an amazing opportunity for our business,” said Ron Demers, Pak’s maintenance manager. “It will give us more color, especially process color ability, from a six-color model to our new eight-color model. The turnaround will be so fast that we’ll have extra capacity for more printed products. We’re predicting that we’ll go from our current two-hour changeover to under 10 minutes for a full eight-color job. It will allow us to expand and diversify. It is a more modern automated motorized press that will double the speed that we currently have. Its high level of automation includes optical error detection and 100% web inspection night and day, automated viscosity control, auto washup, auto impression setting, servo control, memory of all-important job settings, automatic splicing, and automatic tension control. It will be a huge advantage for our business.”
The company’s current Flexotecnica press was installed in 1995.
