Color Ad Packaging Invests in W&H

Color Ad PackagingLINCOLN, RI | Color Ad Packaging, based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, has placed a sizable order with Windmoeller & Hoelscher and its subsidiary, Garant Machinenhandel, including a HELIOSTAR gravure press, a MIRAFLEX flexographic press, along with three TRIUMPH bag machines.

Serving primarily confectionery, snack food and beverage markets, Color Ad Packaging is North America’s largest producer of pre-formed bags as well as a leading supplier of pouches and rollstock. The new printing presses and bag making equipment will enhance Color Ad's existing line-up of machinery allowing for additional capacity and product development.

"The decision to work with W&H as the primary supplier for our new equipment came at the conclusion of an exhaustive 6-month process. Our research and the support of the team at W&H left no other conclusion but to partner with this industry leader," said Chip Batten, president and CEO.

Color Ad management sees this investment not only as a commitment to its current and future customers but also to its employees. "By providing our staff with state-of-the-art machinery, we enhance their ability to produce the absolute best print and flexible packaging products for our customers," said Batten.
