PCMC Acquires Graphbury Machines

GREEN BAY, WI | Paper Converting Machine Company (PCMC), a div. of Barry-Wehmiller and a supplier of converting machinery for the tissue, nonwovens, and package printing industries worldwide, has recently grown through its acquisition of Graphbury Machines of Green Bay, WI, a machinery manufacturer and provider of engineering-services for the flexible packaging industry.

“We are extremely excited to welcome the Graphbury team to the PCMC family,” says PCMC president Steve Kemp. “The talent and knowledge that Graphbury brings will strengthen our ability to provide value to our existing customers, while remaining responsive to emerging market technologies.”

Graphbury has developed a wide range of products said to improve flexographic printers’ production and performance. Most notably, its Anilox Laser Washing Machine reportedly offers customers the ability to clean ceramic and chrome anilox rolls of any line screen without causing surface wear. The laser technology works on all kinds of inks and vaporizes deposited particles inside of the cells with an unprecedented efficiency, says company.

“This acquisition marks the beginning of a new era for PCMC in providing high-performance, innovative solutions,” says Rodney Pennings, PCMC printing, coating, and laminating sales director. “We are looking forward to collaborating and creating additional value for customers.”
