Outlook Group Invests in New Equipment

Press release from the issuing company

NEENAH, Wis.--Aug. 17, 2005-- Outlook Group Corp. today announced it has purchased three new pieces of equipment that will enhance quality and increase productivity for client projects. The new equipment includes a Bobst die-cutter, a Bobst folder/gluer and a Polar Autocut trim system. Joseph J. Baksha, president and chief executive officer of Outlook Group, said the new equipment offers a number of advantages. "All three pieces have improved technology that enables us to increase efficiency, reduce lead times and maintain competitive pricing - three major advantages in pursuing long-term relationships." Baksha said the Bobst die-cutter doubles the company's existing die-cutting capacity, in response to increased client demand for this service. The Bobst folder/gluer also expands capacity and enhances quality control for folding carton production with in-line inspections and more accurate make-readies. The Polar trim system is an automated system that significantly increases throughput and enhances safety. "The increased efficiency and productivity resulting from these investments will benefit both Outlook Group and our clients," said Baksha. "Over the past year, we have invested nearly $8 million in new equipment and equipment enhancements, including approximately $1.6 million for the three newest pieces of equipment. The new equipment expands our capacity for specific components of client projects and facilitates our strategy to provide complete supply chain management solutions for our clients. We believe that continually reinvesting in our business helps to maintain long-term client relationships through increased satisfaction and added value," said Baksha.
