Pico Rivera, California based Bay Cities has confirmed it has purchased an HP PageWide C500 digital corrugated press. With this new addition, Bay Cities expands its sus- tainable packaging offerings as well as POP displays and subscription boxes to its brands and retailers. In addition to its innovation, Bay Cities focuses heavily on implement- ing sustainable practices and procedures during the pro- duction process to meet the demand of its customers for eco-friendly packaging, contributing to a circular economy. The C500 industrial-scale press will enable Bay Cities to grow in retail packaging as a cost–effective alterna- tive to litho label with mid to long runs. Utilizing this new equipment will allow Bay Cities to enhance its creative ca- pabilities, while reducing production and lead times, ob- solescence and costs — a win–win for both manufacturer and retailer.


“At Bay Cities we are committed to deliver- ing the most innovative solutions and services to our customers. The decision to invest in the C500 press was taken in order to leverage HP’s advanced technology for operational efficiency, and to offer high quality print and sustainable corrugated products fast,” said Greg Tucker, CEO of Bay Cities. “This addi- tion to our lines shows our commitment to en- hanced service, innovation and growth.”
