Multi-Color Corporation Unveils a New Press at Their Scottsburg, IN Facility
Press release from the issuing company
CINCINNATI, Oct. 6 -- Multi-Color Corporation unveiled the addition of a fourth printing press at its Scottsburg, IN facility, in a formal dedication ceremony held on Saturday, September 25, 2004. The dedication took place during a plant open house for the family and friends of the Scottsburg associates.
The new press, which began official production in early September, is a state-of-the-art Schiavi SG 1200, equipped with an electronic line shaft. This 10-color rotogravure press will print both in-mold and shrink-sleeve labels for the company. In addition to the press, Multi-Color dedicated an Adwest Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer. The oxidizer is expected to improve the plant's air emission control system and fuel efficiency.
"This combined dedication represents the completion of a $5 million project, supporting Multi-Color's commitment to continuous growth for our Scottsburg associates, for the Scottsburg community and for our company," stated Multi-Color President and CEO, Frank Gerace, to a crowd of plant associates and dignitaries of Scottsburg, IN.
The 150,000 square-foot gravure facility is the largest producer of in-mold labels in the world and a key producer of shrink sleeve labels. Over 9 million labels are produced daily and shipped to blow-molding locations in the US, Mexico and South America. The facility also houses an electron beam coating line to produce the highest levels of gloss available in the industry.
The plant is a recent recipient of Unilever's Vendor of the Year Award, as well as the TLMI Environmental Leadership Award.
