Zumbiel packaging expands & purchases new manroland

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Zumbiel’s 2006 strategy update that re-organized the company along divisional lines was designed to build sales in key market segments. This successful strategy led to the need for a highly automated manroland R900 large format UV press and 180,000ft2 addition to support their Consumer Packaging Division. The addition will provide room for the new press, current equipment moving in from the existing Norwood, OH facility as well as future investments.

“As business grew and demand increased, the need for a more modern, automated, and reliable press became evident,” said Zumbiel’s CEO, Bob Zumbiel, “we saw the potential time and cost savings from updated technology press features available on today’s presses.”

A Zumbiel press selection team ultimately decided upon a ROLAND 907-6 press (56” width) with an aqueous anilox coater. The press is prepared for UV printing with several interdeck UV modules. It also includes a Telepresence remote diagnostics module, OK Balance, ColorPilot and printnet.
The expansion will be completed and the new press operational in the fourth quarter of this year.

Since 1843 Zumbiel Packaging has been providing a wide range of innovative paperboard packaging solutions to brands in the consumer and beverage markets.
