US-based Menasha Packaging is expanding its capacity by installing a new flexographic press, in a move to cater to increasing consumer demand for its products.
The company has purchased a Bobst Central Impression Flexographic 90SIX Printing Press that will help in doubling its capacity for preprinted linerboard orders.
Expected to become operational over the next 12-14 months, the new press will help the company maximise its efficiencies and optimise the customer's supply chain.
The new press is the second of its type to be installed in the Menasha network.
According to the company, Bobst Central Impression Flexographic 90SIX Printing Presses offer minimum downtime and maximum efficiency.
Menasha Group Packaging and Display vice-president Mike Riegsecker said: "Menasha Packaging has recently seen an increased need to expand our flexographic printing services.
"This new printing press will allow Menasha to continue providing high-quality graphics while both fulfilling the demands of our current customers and allowing for future growth."
Menasha Packaging president Mike Waite said: "Menasha continues to grow along with our customers, and as their needs evolve, so do our offerings.
"Menasha is committed to remaining a leader in the merchandising and packaging industries, and providing end-to-end solutions."
