International PaperBox to install new Koenig & Bauer Rapida 106 press
June 23, 2022 By PrintAction Staff
At International PaperBox, the accent is firmly on quality and customization. Serving a variety of businesses in the Utah and Mountain West vicinity, this nearly 20-year-old folding carton packaging printer has gained a committed customer base that seek unique and difficult jobs incorporating printing, folding, and gluing applications. To continue to provide high quality service, the firm decided to boost its production and capacity with a new Koenig & Bauer Rapida 106 seven-colour UV press.
“We’re stepping up our game,” says International PaperBox CEO Wade Holbrook, who owns the 50-employee business along with his wife Kay. “There’s no comparison between our current 15-year-old 40-in. press and our new Rapida 106 press in terms of speed and automation. Our customers and our firm will be benefiting from its efficiency, giving us at least 50 per cent more capacity, if not more. Its digital quality control features will be new to our press crew, providing an improved focus on production excellence.”
Once the press is delivered and operating at the 70,000 sq ft facility outside of Salt Lake City, it will become the firm’s flagship, says Holbrook. “We spent a lot of time considering all of the manufacturers and models available to us and, in the end, we determined that the Rapida was the best press on the market,” he adds.
