Cox Target Media’s New Valpak Plant to Feature Muller Martini Press Delivery Automation
“The process is truly revolutionary, and not only from a press delivery standpoint. The entire new Valpak Manufacturing Center is an innovative vision for the future, a model of end-to-end automated efficiency that the worldwide print industry should pay very close attention to,” continued Muller Martini’s Roger Bilodeau.
In addition to the unprecedented scope of automation that will be implemented, the opening of the new plant will embody a culmination of the most unique and broad-based vendor collaboration in the history of print production. Besides Muller Martini, many other industry pacesetters have been brought together for this project. Each of these world-class suppliers is integrating their expertise and their technologies so that all equipment and systems can interact seamlessly with one another and perform to their fullest capabilities and efficiencies.
“Because of the complexity of this project, we needed partners who could think outside the envelope and come up with solutions to support our ideas and needs,” said Jim Sampey of Cox Target Media. In speaking specifically of Muller Martini, Sampey said, “They are the only ones that could provide a comprehensive, end-to-end press delivery solution.” And he added, “Muller Martini is going above and beyond to ensure successful software and equipment integration.”
