Ingersoll Paper Box Orders KBA Press

DALLAS, TX | KBA North America announces that Ingersoll Paper Box, a folding carton manufacturer headquartered in Ingersoll, ON, Canada, has selected its KBA Rapida 106 41-in. seven-color press equipped with a coater, full UV capabilities, and in-line color control. The new press will be delivered in April 2014.

“We welcome 2014 as an exciting year for our company,” says Sarah Skinner, managing director of Ingersoll Paper Box. “We’re eagerly anticipating the delivery of our new KBA Rapida 106 41-inch seven-color press because it gives us added capabilities and will broaden our customer base. We cannot wait to unveil our new press capabilities to our existing customers. Once installed, we will host an open house in early spring where we’ll also be demonstrating our recent automatic sheet inspection machine, KBA press, and other enhancements to our sheet fed operation.”

Choosing the new press was not a quick light-hearted decision for management at Ingersoll. The company visited three leading press manufacturers and spent ten days in Germany listening to presentations. But ultimately, Ingersoll felt that KBA was the best fit for its company and provided Skinner and her management team with an ongoing partnership well into the future.

The new KBA press will aid in maintaining Ingersoll’s reputation for quality, fast turnaround, and personalized service to its pharmaceutical customers that demand quick turnarounds on short-run work in a highly regulated industry.

“Seventy-five percent of our work is derived from the pharmaceutical industry,” says Skinner, “while the rest of our customer base hails from food, consumer goods, and the health and medical industries. New for our company will be the in-line color control system on the KBA press. Our clients expect innovation and this latest technology delivers. Key features of the KBA press that attracted us to it was that it offered many features in one press—from seven-color processing, automated in-line color consistency, to UV coatings to In-line color control. The KBA enhances our ability to provide our clients more intricate colorful designs.

“We were attracted to KBA’s consistency throughout the production of our press,” says Skinner. “Unlike any of the other press manufacturers, KBA has a devoted engineering team for each press that knows your particular model and accessories, how it works, and caters to your specific needs. This gave us an unprecedented comfort level. KBA accompanied us to three different locations in California where we were impressed to see our press model in action. In the end, we felt very secure placing our order with KBA.”
