“The increase in grocery sales, in stores as well as on- line, gave the folding carton segment a tremendous boost in the demand for our highest performance MASTERCUT 145 diecutters as well as the MASTERFOLD Gluers with automated infeeds and packing systems at takeoff. At the same time, we are seeing new players enter the market with great success with both the VISION and EXPERT lines of equipment. Our forecast sees this carrying over well into 2021. “As consumer habits continue to change towards on- line shopping, the demand for corrugated packaging con- tinues to grow as well. The need for boxes that best fit the product being shipped, as well as maximizing truckloads for carriers, has certainly created a demand in the BOBST line of flexo folder gluers. The high-performance solutions of the MINI 618 line and the EXPERTLINE 8.20, certainly responded to the converters needs. “The increased demand for Value Added ecommerce packaging has also led us to the development of the new- est rotary diecutter in our product offering. The New MAS- TER DRO releasing in mid-2021, will bring the added value of inside print with the performance necessary in today’s competitive market. “The highest precision in diecutting continued to be a topic which the BOBST MASTERCUT lines, with power register, continues to successfully address. The trend of reliable high-performance flatbed diecutters continues to grow year after year in the North American market. Brand owners rely on this precision to maximize their packing line with consistent, accurate well scored blanks. “The pandemic and the inability to travel without lengthy quarantines has once again emphasized the tre- mendous importance of remote connectivity. The BOBST Service team successfully assisted customers remote- ly, assuring optimized production and decreased impact when setbacks did occur. The growth of BOBST’s Con- nected Services has been on a steady year over year incline, and in 2020 we saw a utilization increase of 20 percent in the U.S. alone for Helpline, our remote trouble- shooting service. Our 24/7 service, Helpline Premium also saw an additional 15 percent in after-hour remote service sessions, helping those customers that were running pro- duction around the clock to meet market demands. With today’s ever-changing conditions, the demand for remote connectivity and functionality has never been greater. This was highlighted in 2020 and shows no sign of slowing down in 2021. “Last year was evidence of our ability to respond swiftly and with agility to disruptions in the industry. Our solutions in the packaging industry – fostered the innovation and commitment our customer seek and demand. In 2021 we continue that committed to our customers by spear-head- ing the future of the packaging world” Call (973) 226-8000. Visit .
