Color Ad Makes Large Packaging Investment

May 19, 2013

Color Ad Packaging of Winnipeg, Manitoba, has made a large-scale production investment with Windmoeller & Hoelscher, including placing orders for a Heliostar gravure press, a Miraflex flexographic press, and three Triumph bag machines.


Focusing on the confectionery, snack food and beverage markets, Color Ad Packaging describes itself as North America’s largest producer of pre-formed bags, as well as a major supplier of pouches and roll stock.

"The decision to work with W&H [Windmoeller & Hoelscher] as the primary supplier for our new equipment came at the conclusion of an exhaustive 6-month process,” said Chip Batten, President and CEO, of Color Ad. "By providing our staff with state-of-the-art machinery, we enhance their ability to produce the absolute best print and flexible packaging products for our customers.”

Working with Windmoeller & Hoelscher and its subsidiary Garant Machinenhandel, Color Ad is now making preparations to install the Miraflex CM 10 press with a 52-inch working width. The flexo press is equipped with Easy-Col colour matching system, Turboclean automatic wash-up system, and the new East-set HD for impression setting and 3D plate topography.

The Heliostar SL 10 press will be installed this fall. It features a 48-inch working width and is the first W&H gravure press in North America to be installed with automatic wash-up.

The three Triumph bag formers to be installed are described as versatile machines for the production of a variety of square-bottom bags.
