Stafford Corrugated Products Breaks Ground On New Facility

PaperWorks To Install Press, New Bobst Lines In NC PLant

Indian Trail, North Carolina based Stafford Corrugated Products has broken ground on its new 50,000-square- foot headquarters. This facility will replace the current 21,000-square-foot headquarters it has operated for the past six years.

Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania based PaperWorks, a full-ser- vice provider of recycled paperboard and specialized folding cartons for packaging applications, is increasing its production capacity and capabilities by investing in new technology in the Greensboro, North Carolina, facility. The state-of-the-art equipment and new technology platforms will integrate well with PaperWorks’ highly-effi- cient business model by offering the most sophisticated automation geared towards full-quality control. Equipment includes two new MasterFold folding gluing lines from Bobst: 110A1 with 600Meters/Min line speed in- cluding end-to-end automation through a full batch turner, easy feed and auto packer. These lines are made with a highly sophisticated servo controlled matic system and in- novative technology used between job changeovers. The company is also installing a new 41-inch GLX740 offset printing press from Komori with seven colors and two coaters, including automating logistics, in-line color control, in-line detection systems, automated changeovers and in-line cold foil technology. This top-of-the-line tech- nology platform will allow for the production of high-end cartons that will be highly sustainable and cost-efficient. The new equipment will be installed in 3Q 2020 and expected to be in production in 4Q 2020.

“The need for more space to house additional invento- ry is what drove this decision. We needed more space to better serve our customers,” said Tony D’Aprile, President of Stafford Corrugated Products. “This new facility is more than double the size we have now and affords us the ad- ditional space to implement automated inventory control, product selection and room to expand custom manufac- turing.” Construction is expected to be completed Spring of 2021. “We appreciate the confidence our customers who made this both necessary and possible,” said D’Aprile.
