10-color flexo press supports company’s growth in flexible packaging.

Capri Packaging, a division of Schreiber Foods, has added a 10-color Miraflex CM flexographic press from Windmoeller & Hoelscher. The press, located in Capri's newly expanded 120,000 sq. ft. facility in Clinton, MO, was started up in December 2010.

 Schreiber Foods, the world's largest customer-brand dairy company, initially opened Capri Packaging in 1994 to produce flexible packaging that would meet the unique needs of their customers in the private label market. In addition to supplying Schreiber customers, Capri also supplies external customers with packaging solutions.

 The new press and plant expansion were pivotal in supporting Capri's overall growth in these areas,

“With the new press and our ability to turn around multiple shortruns and a variety of SKUs, we are well equipped and ready to take on more outside packaging jobs,” says Myron Geiser, director of packaging. “The press has also helped make our printing operation more efficient by reducing waste and energy consumption.”

 The line at Capri is capable of printing speeds up to 1,650 ft/min.
