C -P Flexible Packaging, headquartered in York, Pennsylvania, has forged an aggressive path forward during these chal- lenging times. The company has introduced a number of new initiatives recently, including the launch of a new line of sustain-

The side business out- paced the core business and C-P Flexible Packaging was born. The company currently operates four manufacturing facilities — two in York, Penn- sylvania, one in Bristol, Penn- sylvania, and one in Buffalo, NewYork. The company has 14 flexog- raphic presses,which includes extended gamut, in operation

and produces printed rollstock; premade pouches; peel and reseal rollstock; laser-scored pouches or rollstock; pre-applied Inno-Lok zippers; flexible packaging for cold seal applications; wicketed bags; roll-fed labels; stretch sleeves; and shrink sleeves.
