US-based WS Packaging Group has made an undisclosed investment in new printing technologies with an aim to expand its capacity.
The expansion, which is a result of the company’s three-year commitment to invest in new printing technologies, will help WS Packaging to meet additional new business demands.
It will also help WS Packaging in reducing lead times and in increasing efficiencies for its customers.
WS Packaging Group CEO Charlie Eitel said: “The investment in new equipment and technology allows us to rework staffing as well as optimise production and workflow.
“Expanded capacity and reduced lead time not only allows us to deliver jobs faster to our customers, it also enables us to help our customers save money and boost productivity.”
With the new investment, the company will have access to more technology options such as Mark Andy Digital Series and HP Indigo Digital Press.
The new technologies are expected to allow WS Packaging to deliver its products in a reduced time and cost from its 17 manufacturing facilities based in the US and Mexico.
Furthermore, WS Packaging will be able to select the most efficient process from a wide range of printing and labelling technologies.
The company will also be able to optimise its workflow and reduce waste with the new equipment.
In March 2016, WS Packaging opened a converter-based testing facility at its plant in Knoxville, Tennessee, US.
Approved by US-based safety consulting and certification company UL, the facility was designed to simplify UL and cUL recognition for durable goods labelling.
