Burlington (Ont.)-based Battlefield Press services the commercial print and folding carton sectors (paper and plastic) and offers a complete fulfillment centre. The growth in its folding carton business motivated the company to invest in a Koenig & Bauer Omega Allpro 70 folder gluer. The newest postpress machinery will arrive at its Canadian facility in the summer of 2021.

Battlefield’s management and operational team see a multitude of positive gains with the arrival of the new Omega Allpro 70. Jerry Theoret, president and CEO of Battlefield Press, notes the new folder gluer’s overall speeds (both setup and run) will be a welcome addition to its efficiencies in gluing, and the additional capacity will allow Battlefield to better schedule its mixed product range.

“Packaging has been a growing part of our business and represents a larger segment than it did before. With this in mind, we decided the Omega Allpro 70 will be the best solution for Battlefield based on our current needs,” says Theoret.
