Envelope Specialist JBM Adds manroland R700
LEBANON, OH—Continuing its focus on delivering meaningful, unique solutions for customers, JBM has installed a manroland R700 direct drive sheetfed offset press that provides color management, quick changeovers and fast net run rates. This new technology will enable JBM to continue to serve the niche envelope industry.
Founded nearly 30 years ago, JBM Envelope now produces a wide range of specialty envelopes, with more than six million envelopes manufactured daily. However, the business is changing with the times. When Marcus Sheanshang, president ant CEO, took over the business in 2008, his vision was to revolutionize the niche paper envelope business in a world that is evolving.
Under the newly formed JBM Packaging division, Sheanshang and the JBM team developed new products that range from artistic seed packets to folding drinking cups. All of these new product developments are predicated on the need to reinvent the manufacturing process to meet customer demand.
"In an ever-changing business environment, manufacturing companies must drive innovations centered on the voice of the customer," Sheanshang said. "Manufacturing companies can no longer rely on status quo for running their business, but instead must constantly improve their best practices. Investing in the new manroland not only provides greater capacity and functionality to deliver faster, more creative and efficient solutions for our customers, but also allows us to expand the products that we offer to a broader base of customers."
