Rock-Tenn Packaging Plant in Tennessee Joins Mitsubishi's '300 Million Impressions Club'
Press release from the issuing company
KIMBALL, Tenn. -- Rock-Tenn Co. takes great pride in bringing high value-added services to its customers. One of North America's leading manufacturers of packaging, merchandizing displays and recycled paperboard, Rock-Tenn operates production plants throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and Chile.
The company's Kimball, Tenn., facility has surpassed 300 million impressions on a single Mitsubishi sheetfed press -- a 51-inch folding carton press. Mitsubishi Lithographic Presses presented a special "300 Million Impressions Club" engraved statuette to Rock-Tenn to commemorate the production milestone.
"The Mitsubishi press has performed extremely well during the time we have owned it," said Andy Smith, assistant general manager. "Any problems with the press have been minimal. We can always count on it to run consistently."
Rock-Tenn utilizes the seven-color carton press with aqueous coater to print packaging products for high-end consumer items. Smith said the average run length is 10,000 sheets.
Mitsubishi inaugurated the 300 Million Impressions Club in 2002 to honor excellence, according to Ken Kodama, vice president of sheetfed sales.
"Each company inducted into the club is richly deserving of recognition for their commitment," Kodama said. "These printers exemplify what it means to harness the power of print, and we want everyone to know it."
