WS Packaging Group invests in new printing technologies
Green Bay, Wis.-based WS Packaging Group has expanded its capacity as a result of a three-year commitment to invest in new printing technologies. WS Packaging, one of the largest printing and label converting operations in North America, said the equipment investment means it can meet the demand for more new business and reduce lead times, resulting in increased efficiencies for its customers.
“The investment in new equipment and technology allows us to rework staffing as well as optimize production and workflow,” said Charlie Eitel, WS Packaging Group CEO. “Expanded capacity and reduced lead-time not only allow us to deliver jobs faster to our customers but also enable us to help our customers save money and boost productivity.”
More technology options such as the Mark Andy digital series and HP Indigo digital presses contribute to WS Packaging considerably increasing production, while also providing shorter delivery times and lower shipping costs from its 17 strategically located manufacturing facilities based in the United States and Mexico, according to the company. Also, optimized workflow and reworked staffing, with the addition of new equipment and a just-in-time process, drive the lean management of the printed-parts supply chain directly to the point of need, meaning customers get their orders faster with reduced waste.
