CompanyBox Completes Digital Expansion In NC

CompanyBox, the Charlotte, North Carolina based corru- gated packaging company, reported a significant expan- sion in capacity and nationwide corrugated digital print solutions with the multi-million dollar investment in a sec- ond HP C500 press. The purchase adds to its robust suite of digital equipment and further strengthens capabilities for all sizes of business. The new C500 is equipped with a state-of-the-art stack- er that allows CompanyBox to run small jobs continuously with larger runs without slowing up the press. “Combined with our platform and technology, we are providing our customers with new and innovative ways to capture the consumer’s attention,” said Louie DeJesus, CompanyBox CEO. “The package can now become a communication

piece; personalized and targeted to specific geographic markets and events. Gone are the barriers and long lead times inherent in traditional platforms.” The press, known for its flexibility on small to large runs, also delivers sharp text, barcodes, and smooth tone transi- tions, all in vivid colors. As a true replacement to litho, the print resolution can be viewed in accurate detail. “Custom-

ers do not need to settle for ‘close enough’ to get all the benefits digital packaging has to offer,” noted Kyle DeJesus, CompanyBox President. “Our printers allow us to work with brands like Polaroid and Lowe’s. As a minority partner, Green Bay Packag- ing is in full support of CompanyBox’s growth. “CompanyBox is an industry leader in digital printing, service, and quality. This investment builds on the platform that CompanyBox es- tablished by being a pioneer in digital print- ing. Green Bay Packaging is excited to be a part of this investment and taking the next step in the journey,” said Bryan Hollenbach, Executive VP at Green Bay Packaging. The purchase makes CompanyBox the first in the world to run two C500s in the same building. The company recently added a second 65,000-square-foot facility, giving it 180,000-square-feet completely dedicated to digital packaging. It puts CompanyBox in a position to be one of the few companies with enough capacity and redundancy to serve customers’ needs within a 10-day window. “We can now automate two-sided digital printing utilizing the two HP C500s with our fully conveyorized facility,” explained DeJe- sus. “To support that added capacity, we increased our converting equipment by pur- chasing two new additional Eterna Die Cut- ters, a Vega Specialty Gluer, 2-piece Stitcher Gluer, a rotary die cutter and a central scrap system. This investment will make what we believe to be the largest totally digital post- print packaging company in the U.S.,” said DeJesus. CompanyBox will be holding a ribbon-cut- ting ceremony in November to showcase the new expansion.
