Family-owned packaging prepress company invests in Ohio facility in 2018.
Sylvania, Ohio – Packaging prepress provider CSW, Inc. plans to invest in die-making equipment and triple its staff in Sylvania, OH this year. The family-owned manufacturing company produces flexographic printing plates and corrugated cutting dies in MA, NY and OH.
“Our Ohio location was added in 2006, and has been a solid contributor to CSW’s expansion into the Midwest market for corrugated print tooling,” notes CSW President Scott Ellison. “Recent years have seen a lot more opportunity in producing tooling for corrugated die-cutters in this area, so we are upgrading and adding personnel to meet demand.”
Established 80 years ago in Massachusetts, CSW has evolved from a small manufacturer of metal engraving plates to a multimillion-dollar packaging prepress company. In addition to producing tooling for corrugated package printers, CSW also works with brands and flexible package printers to prepare color-managed artwork, 3D renderings and packaging mockups.
CEO Laura Wright, whose grandfather founded the company, observes, “Because we continue to diversify our product and service offerings, invest in R&D and develop our people, CSW has lasted for three generations of family ownership. We’re hoping to keep it going for future generations, too.”
