We’re back from Germany, flipping through our phones filled with pics of beer, sausage, sauerkraut and a whole lot of machines. We barely survived a white knuckled rip down the autobahn en route to the Windmoeller & Hoelscher plant in Lengerich to meet our brand new 52″ MIRAFLEX AM press baby. We are proud to announce, it was love at first sight! She is big, beautiful and now named: King Kong.

So the Germans…  they love rules more than soccer and being on time is considered a virtue.  That in mind, we can safely say our massive 52″ MIRAFLEX AM printing press will punctually arrive in Vancouver May 2015. We’re already planning on playing Kraftwerk at the baby shower.

The Windmoeller & Hoelscher 52″ MIRAFLEX AM 10 Colour Flexographic Printing Press, has been designed for the highest quality printing of flexible packagings. Quality demands on flexible packaging continues to rise while it is used in nearly all industries: dairy/cheese, snack foods, dried fruits and nuts, coffee and tea, pharmaceuticals, vitamins and supplements.  Transport packaging and over wraps for beverage bottles and cans or packaging of sanitary products have become more and more sophisticated too. Flexible packaging for the industrial sector such as building materials, chemical products or pet food require a high-quality print.

Pouches, primarily of a stand-up pouch construction, will offer significant growth opportunities. Recent stand-up pouch product launches in such areas as pet food, soups and stews, sauces, baby food, snack food, fresh-cut produce, ready-to-eat meals, noncarbonated beverages, lawn and garden products, and household goods will contribute to further growth. Growth in demand for pouches is also a function of economics, as the lighter weight packages can vastly reduce both production and transport costs.”

We’re off to Germany to visit our brand new baby… and this one is advanced.

Of course, every Flexible Packaging Printing parent believes their child is a genius but this is for real. May 2015, our massive 52″ baby is coming home and already packed full of new ideas and technical innovations that will have all of the other moms talking.

Quality printing has always been a core value at Associated Labels – so much that we’ll guarantee it.

Flexible Packaging is the future of consumer goods packaging, “US demand for converted flexible packaging is projected to increase 3.0 percent annually to $18.8 billion in 2017. Long term prospects for converted flexible packaging will be heightened by technology advances to enhance shelf life and protect the package from bacteria and other potential contaminants, with material advances in thinner multiwall bags also generating growth.
