Baldwin Technology expands U.S. manufacturing capabilities

Baldwin Technology Co. Inc. continues to invest in resources and manufacturing capabilities to meet growing demand across multiple print, packaging and industrial markets in the Americas. This includes additions to the Americas sales team, and expansion of its LED-UV and IR manufacturing capabilities at its world-class facilities in River Falls, WI and Easton, PA.

Fuelling funding for the strategic investments is Baldwin’s recent integration into BW Converting, a strategic alliance of resources and services that bring together six Barry-Wehmiller companies. To support the growth of the business and increased demand in narrow web, packaging and corrugated markets Baldwin added two new equipment sales leaders in January.

  • Jason Atturo, based out of Philadelphia, PA, is responsible for sales into the Northeast region of the U.S. and Eastern Canada.
  • Barry White joins the team based out of Indianapolis, responsible for sales in the East Central region, covering Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan and Ohio.

Baldwin has also strengthened its aftermarket team with the addition of two more sales leaders. Nick Harkness rejoins the Barry-Wehmiller family as the Aftermarket Sales Leader representing the Central Region. Baldwin has promoted Dave Gero from his role as a service technician to Aftermarket Sales Manager for the East Coast.

In addition to the recent additions to the sales team, Baldwin’s U.S. based manufacturing capabilities continue to grow. The St. Louis, MO-based BW Converting brand continues to invest in its North American manufacturing footprint. Baldwin has expanded its manufacturing capabilities for its curing and drying product lines. It is now able to manufacture IR drying systems at its flagship facility in River Falls, WI, in addition to its prior capabilities with best-in-class LED and UV systems. Baldwin is also adding an additional furnace to its UV lamp production lines in Easton, PA, to meet growing demand.

“It’s exciting to see the investment in the selling team and across the Baldwin business, to support the growth we are seeing in multiple markets. The ability to attract Jason, Barry, Nick and Dave to the team sets us up for further success and supports the long-term growth we expect to see.,” said Craig Black, Vice President of Sales, Americas. “I look forward to seeing them contribute to Baldwin’s continued success as we have seen rapid growth in markets that we were not as well known in just a few years ago – narrow web and corrugated in particular.”
