Maxcess Invests in Roll Center of Excellence

 

CHICOPEE, MA | Maxcess, a global supplier of products and services for the web handling industry, recently unveiled a $1.5 million Center of Excellence facility in Chicopee, designed to be a center for long-length and large-diameter rolls for the paper, plastic sheet, food, and general converting industries.

“We think investing in this complete transformation will be an enormous asset to our organization, as well as our customers,” says Greg Jehlik, CEO of Maxcess. “This is the first step, with plans for our Neenah, Wisconsin, facility underway, in an expansive transformation for Webex in how we manufacture our precision rolls, ultimately providing our customers with greater service and shorter lead times.”

Recently integrated under the Maxcess-Webex umbrella, the program was initiated to transform the PFE, Fox Machining, and Magnat-Fairview facilities into a world-class manufacturing Center of Excellence for Precision Rolls, according to company.

“This project is a complete redesign of our existing manufacturing facility, allowing a greater focus on efficiency and shorter lead times for our large diameter rolls," says Glenn Geddis, general manager for Webex Chicopee. “By combining the talents and expertise of Fox, Magnat-Fairview, and PFE, we will provide our customers with high quality rolls through a more efficient and effective operation.”
