Paragon Print and Packaging (http://www.paragonprintandpackaging.com
) is launching its dedicated sleeve and carton facility in July 2008, delivering bespoke flexibility and volume capability under one roof. The new facility will provide a specific approach to the fresh and chilled food sector for Paragon sleeve and carton customers ensuring an unrivalled service proposition irrespective of order quantity.
The new 72,000 sq ft dual process facility located in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, will eventually house three flat sheet litho presses and two reel fed Arpeco Flexo presses delivering optimum flexibility for sleeve and carton customers.
Reel fed production will provide competitive response times for bespoke small volumes while the flat sheet production capability will support larger volumes of stock production.
Rick Smith, marketing manager of Paragon Print and Packaging, comments: "We now have a facility to deliver our service vision to the sleeve and carton sector, building on our reputation for service excellence in the label and film sectors".
The dedicated sleeve and carton facility will also house a 24/7 artwork and repro capability with dual process expertise to accelerate the transfer time between the processes.
