Komori America has confirmed that CastlePierce has purchased an eight-color Komori Lithrone GX40 (GLX840) advance press with coater, UV and PQA-S camera system to be installed in February 2023.
From its humble beginnings in a three-room building in downtown Oshkosh, Wisconsin, CastlePierce has experienced substantial year-over-year growth with its strategic decision to move from commercial print to brand packaging. The new press, along with two recent installations, provided the ability to offer print on plastics and rigid set-up box packaging, as well as expand the growing market of folding cartons.
The company attributes its success to a singular focus on meeting the speed-to-market and flexibility needs of their target segments relating to food and beverage, beauty, healthcare, medical and pet products. Speed to market and flexibility were also the key drivers behind the selection of the Komori GLX840 advance.
“We are really excited about the expanded capacity this press is going to give us because we have grown the business largely due to our ability to meet extremely quick turnaround times,” said Jeff Elmer, Technical Manager, CastlePierce. “From our leadership on down, our goal has always been to ensure our customers can count on CastlePierce to meet even the most stringent delivery dates, and we win business because of that promise.”
“CastlePierce has a well-earned reputation for exceptional customer service,” said Clark Scherer, District Sales Manager, Komori America. “We are pleased to provide the technology needed to help the CastlePierce team continue to thrive in the dynamic packaging marketplace and to meet their continued goal to get to market quickly with outstanding quality packaging that sells.”
