We used chains, cranes, crates, bananas, measuring tapes, tape, spray paint, plastic, trucks, gloves, more bananas, drills, saws, hammers, lifts, ladders and the like to get King Kong into her new home here at Associated Labels and Packaging.

Over the course of three days we held a skull island human sacrifice ceremony to finally calm down King Kong’s temper tantrums. She is now content and feeling right at home with all of her needs being met. She fits right in with our company culture and goes out of her way to make customers happy. For example, we have trained her to slam her hands down to make 1,000,000 impressions in just three hours! What a feat!

If you would like to come view King Kong or feed her, please contact sales@associated-labels.com with your requests.

[WARNING: No Gorillas were harmed in this process]

From our Blog post in June:

The Windmoeller & Hoelscher 52″ MIRAFLEX AM 10 Colour Flexographic Printing Press, has been designed for the highest quality printing of flexible packagings. Flexible packaging continues to rise while it is used in nearly all industries: dairy and cheese packaging, snack foods packaging, dried fruits and nuts packaging, coffee and tea packaging, pharmaceuticals packaging, vitamins and supplements packaging.  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.

 

King Kong Hits Vancouver

May 29, 2015

KingKong

Oh no! It’s started! Our press baby has been home for two days and we’re already taking “artsy” photos of her fingers and toes (Translation: photos of gears and printing decks).

King Kong, known in the industry as the Windmoeller & Hoelscher 52″ MIRAFLEX AM 10 Colour Flexographic Printing Press, has finally arrived at Associated Labels and Packaging. From Germany, King Kong travelled across the Atlantic aboard the MSC LEIGH through the Panama Canal, up past the Golden Gate Bridge (Go 49ers) and right into the Port of Vancouver.

Even though King Kong is swaddled in shipping plastic, we can’t help but think our baby is cuter than other babies. She’s advanced too: The Windmoeller & Hoelscher 52″ MIRAFLEX AM 10 Colour Flexographic Printing Press, has been designed for the highest quality printing of flexible packagings. Flexible packaging continues to rise while it is used in nearly all industries: dairy and cheese packaging, snack foods packaging, dried fruits and nuts packaging, coffee and tea packaging, pharmaceuticals packaging, vitamins and supplements packaging.  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.

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.

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.”
