With its success, growth, and longevity, Cumberland Container once again needed to invest in new equipment. Their mission is to provide quality products within spec and on time, therefore, any ma- chine purchased by Cumberland had to be the cream of the crop. “In 2017, we needed to replace our 50-inch S&S FFG. We needed a machine that could combine high-quality print with speed and work as well on day 3,650 as it did on day one. We have a proven history of providing our customers with high-quality products, and any machine we purchase has to deliver on that,” said Mark Jared, CEO & Owner, Cumberland Container. Randy Swallows, Sales Manager, added, “Our acquisition team spent ten months evaluating the flexo folder gluers in the market. In addition to evaluating the specs of each machine, our team did its due diligence and went on extensive site visits to see each machine in operation. At the end, the Apstar HG2 1228 FFG came out on top.” The Apstar stood out from the crowd because of a combination of features. For starters, Cumberland purchased one of the first ma- chines in North America with inside/outside printing capabilities in one pass. As a company known to be cutting edge, Cumberland Container jumped at the chance to be one of the first container companies with this capability. “The Apstar HG2’s features make it a stand-out ma- chine. When you combine that with parts that can be sourced locally and are in stock in Merrillville, Indiana, the Apstar quickly became the clear choice,” explained Andrew Miller, Operations Manager. Cumberland’s new Apstar was installed in May 2019. Just after the installation, the Cumberland team experienced some issues with the counter ejector program, but the Haire Service Team would intervene. “They are the A-team,” said Brian McCormick, Lead Maintenance. “They were very responsive and fixed the issue we had experienced. It’s so important to have support when you purchase a new machine.” The Apstar was one of the first machines in North America capable of in- side/outside printing in one pass.
