Amcor Flexibles is excited to announce the addition of a new press in Milwaukee, Wisc., allowing flexographic printing, gravure coating and slitting to occur in a single pass. The additional capacity from the press and slitter will support demand for high-quality coated healthcare grade paper and film.
“We are thrilled for this opportunity to continue to support the needs of our medical customers with the best coated products to meet the demanding needs of medical device manufacturers,” said Chris Cosgrove, VP and General Manager, Amcor Flexibles Americas. “With this expansion our Milwaukee facility is perfectly poised to deliver the value and service that our customers have come to expect.” 
The stunning simplicity of the MP4 Press will allow Amcor to offer better performance at a competitive cost to its customers. 
“Our team is working tirelessly to ensure a smooth transition for our customers,” said Brad Nasgovitz, General Manager, Milwaukee. “We understand the regulatory requirements and rigor required for any changes within this landscape and take our responsibilities very seriously. Through partnership with our customers, we are ensuring this new equipment will meet all their requirements with the added benefit of providing additional supply redundancy.” 
The new equipment is slated for delivery in early 2017.
