The high-speed Hudson-Sharp machines have been installed at its facility in Buffalo, New York.

The equipment is designed to offer improved automation, rapid changeovers and better efficiencies while enhancing workflow, quality and data collection.

It is intended to help C-P meet the demand for different bag formats in various sectors, including food, healthcare and industrial applications.

C-P Flexible Packaging CEO Mike Hoffman said: “Due to the growth of our premade bag business, we are excited to make this investment in state-of-the-art technology that will enable us to continue to meet short lead times and just-in-time service.

“We understand that our customers have seen a shift in consumer demand over the past year and we are ready to support their growth initiatives.

“C-P continues to strategically expand its product portfolio and will invest in new technologies that provide innovative solutions for our customers and best-in-class quality.

“Developing new packaging structures that can be recycled, or that incorporate recycled content, will remain key areas of focus.”

Based in York, Pennsylvania, C-P Flexible Packaging manufactures roll stock, premade pouches, resealable packaging and shrink sleeves.

Last June, the company acquired North American compostable packaging solution provider Genpak Flexible from The Jim Pattison Group for an undisclosed sum.
