Two new Apstar lines for Volk Packaging

Biddeford, ME-based Volk Packaging has confirmed two major investments in equipment from Haire Group that have significantly improved their capacity and capabilities.

First is an Apstar HG2 flexo folder gluer. Second is a 66” x 110” Apstar HG2 1628 5-color rotary die-cutter. It will have three bottom print sections and two top print sections allowing Volk Packaging to run boxes with inside print in a single pass.  The flexo folder gluer will be installed this fall and the rotary die-cutter is set for an early winter 2024 installation.

“I worked along with Derek Volk and his team to identify the best machinery solutions for Volk’s rapidly growing business,” said Tim Wilson, Director, National Accounts, Haire.  “The Apstar line proved to be the best investment. With the installation of the two new machines, Volk Packaging will be able to continue their nearly 60-year tradition of providing the best service in New England to their 1,000 plus customers.”

Derek Volk, CEO, said, “Cutting-edge machinery, fantastic customer service, and a commitment to customer success makes us who we are. The addition of these new machines will increase our capacity and further supports our commitment to customer success.”

Volk Packaging will also be installing equipment from WSA, Ringwood Ducker, AG Stacker and Inspire Automation, that will include conveyors, transfer carts, robotics, bundlers, double-bundlers, unitizers, a bundle breaker, a stretch wrapper and more.
