The Paper Converting Machine Company (PCMC) is opening a new packaging innovation centre in Green Bay, Wis. The multi-purpose space is more than 4,700 sf, and will serve as a hub for demonstrations, training, education, industry trials and research and development.

The Packaging Innovation Center will be the home of a Fusion C flexographic press, Hudson-Sharp’s Ares 400-SUP stand-up pouch machine, a Meridian Elite laser anilox cleaner, an ELS-MAX inline press and the ION digital printing platform. These machines will be available for demonstrations, as well as for hands-on learning and training opportunities. The centre also features tools and supplies for anilox sleeves, plate-mounting, colour-proofing, plate and print inspection, sleeve-cleaning and plate sleeves and tapes.

“We’re excited to be able to welcome printing and converting customers into our facility to experience our innovations firsthand,” said Rodney Pennings, PCMC’s director of sales–printing, coating and laminating. “Our new Packaging Innovation Center is a vision that we’ve had for several years, and it’s rewarding to see it finally be completed.”
