Sonoco Display and Packaging contributes to surge in US manufacturing growth through its investment in the Barberán Jetmaster, direct to corrugate, single pass digital press. The state-of-the-art press is slated to be installed in the Fall 2017.
Following a rigorous global search, Sonoco identified the Barberán Jetmaster as the best technology to meet the future needs of the retail POP display and graphic packaging markets. Its combination of quality, speed, and reliability was unmatched by the competition.
“Our customers can now provide unrivaled retail customization. The Barberán Jetmaster is the perfect complement to our multiyear effort to modernize our equipment base, offering both increased capability and productivity.” said Jeff Tedder, Director US US Manufacturing at Sonoco Display and Packaging.
“Adding Sonoco to our growing list of North American customers validates the relevance of this amazing digital platform. It will be our 5th US installation in the past two years, demonstrating the acceptance of this technology in the marketplace, remarked Garrett Bradley, President of Gemini North America (North American Distributor of Barberán).
“At Barberan we are very excited about where the corrugated and packaging markets are heading. We believe our unique platform where you are able to control your consumables is revolutionary thinking. You are not locked into the same supplier for ink as your press. We have multiple approved suppliers to help drive costs down.”
