PCMC opening new Packaging Innovation Center

Dec. 8, 2021

Paper Converting Machine Co. (PCMC), part of Barry-Wehmiller, is opening a new Packaging Innovation Center, located at its headquarters in Green Bay. The multi-purpose space is more than 4,700 square feet and will serve as a hub for demonstrations, training, education, industry trials, and research and development. 

The Packaging Innovation Center will offer demonstrations and hands-on learning opportunities on a Fusion C flexographic press, Hudson-Sharp’s Ares 400-SUP stand-up pouch machine, a Meridian Elite laser anilox cleaner, an ELS-MAX inline press and the ION digital printing platform. The facility also features tools and supplies for anilox sleeves, plate-mounting, color-proofing, plate and print inspection, sleeve-cleaning, and plate sleeves and tapes.

“We’re excited to be able to welcome printing and converting customers into our facility to experience our innovations firsthand,” said Rodney Pennings, PCMC’s director of sales–printing, coating and laminating. “Our new Packaging Innovation Center is a vision that we’ve had for several years, and it’s rewarding to see it finally be completed.”

Scott Romenesko, PCMC’s director of sales–bag converting, added: “The Packaging Innovation Center will allow Hudson-Sharp customers to complete trials in person on our equipment. It will be a valuable tool for our customers as they evaluate the best equipment to meet their needs.”
 
An open house and ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held in the spring of 2022. Additional partnerships and educational events will be announced in the coming months.
