Uniquely positioned as the only manufacturer in Utah to provide commercial printing, folding carton, and flexible packaging all under one roof, Aspen Press and Packaging recently recorded one of its best sales years in its 20-year history. The Salt Lake City-based company produces everything from straight-line and six-corner folding cartons to booklets and catalogs to pouches and shrink sleeves for the food, nutraceutical, health and beauty, cannabis, and high-tech industries. Seeing its work continue to migrate from commercial to packaging, Aspen recently installed a new Diana Easy 115 from Heidelberg to alleviate a bottleneck in its folding-gluing department. The Diana Easy is Aspen’s third folder gluer in production and first investment in Heidelberg folding carton converting equipment.

“We have a lot of customers who utilize our whole offering,” said Mark Mandel, CEO of Aspen Press & Packaging. “They like that we can produce not only their folding cartons but the inserts that go inside of them. All of that plus sachets or stick packs that are included in the folding carton.”

With increased demand for Aspen’s comprehensive services, its existing equipment could no longer keep up with its continued growth. Mandel said the company, who was previously equipped with only two folder gluers, was “swimming in unfinished cartons on its production floor. The productivity of our die cutters was significantly outpacing our abilities to fold and glue.”

Needing a swift solution, Aspen installed a new Diana Easy 115 from Heidelberg in April.
