Albany Packaging Installs New Koenig & Bauer Press, Folder Gluer Ever since 1947, Albany Packaging has remained commit- ted to providing the highest quality folding-paperboard products to well-known grocers, restaurants, convenience stores, apparel, and retailers across North America.

As business has skyrocketed, its solution to increase capacity was to install a new Koenig & Bauer Rapida 145 seven-color press along with a Koenig & Bauer AllPro 145 folder gluer. Since it went live, the new press has provided a 60 percent increase in press productivity and has saved the company set-up time, while reducing waste and job turnaround time.
