All Packaging Anxiously Awaits KBA Rapida Press for New Salt Lake City Facility
DALLAS—August 19, 2015—All Packaging, a folding carton manufacturer headquartered in Aurora, Colorado, can't contain its excitement. The company has set up a countdown timer on its homepage to let its business partners and clients share in the excitement and count down the days until it receives its new six-color, 41˝ KBA Rapida 105 press with coater. The company's new facility in Salt Lake City will be home to the new press.
Last year, All Packaging purchased the operating equipment and facility lease in Salt Lake City from Belter Cutting Technology, enabling it to provide faster service to its clients located west of the Rocky Mountains and generate greater efficiencies and cost savings. The purchase is also providing former Belter customers with continuity in service and more cost-effective capabilities, manufacturing capacity, and product quality.
“All Packaging Company is pleased to be adding this latest press from KBA at our new Salt Lake City facility,” said Kenneth Pepper, president of All Packaging. “In 2013, we installed a new KBA Rapida 106 41˝ seven-color press with coater and triple extended delivery at our Aurora, Colorado, facility. At the time of its installation, it was the fastest sheetfed offset press in the U.S. with speeds of up to 20,000 sph. A video of the press can be seen on our company’s Website. Since its installation it’s posted millions of impressions. Currently we are supplying packages to the medical device and pharmaceutical, health and beauty, food and beverage, technology and business, pet supplies, and entertainment and recreation markets and shipping to both eastern and western Canada, Mexico, and throughout the U.S. And by investing in the latest equipment technologies, such as our KBA Rapida 106 press, we’ve been experiencing significant growth. We feel that this new KBA Rapida 105 will contribute positively to our bottom line as well."
