WS Packaging Group Inc.(wspackaging.com) has expanded its digital printing capabilities across its nationwide network of 21 printing facilities with the recent installation of two new HP Indigo WS6600 presses. The new presses were installed at the Algoma, WI, and Fullerton, CA, facilities.

“Advances in the speed, size, and overall production capabilities offered by digital printing technologies continually improves our ability to expand the range of customer applications we’re able to pursue using digital,” says Rex Lane, chief executive officer, WS Packaging. “Combining these technology improvements with the process management tools of our IMPACT™ Business System, we’ve enhanced our ability to provide better turnaround times, decrease waste, and expand our flexibility to deliver customer solutions with product quality that defines and differentiates the brand identity of the customers we serve.”

In addition to the new digital press in Fullerton, the company has realigned its West Coast operations by adding digital capacity at its facility in San Luis Obispo, CA. The realignment consolidates production from the WS Packaging facility in Portland, OR, to both Fullerton and San Luis Obispo. New post-digital finishing equipment at the San Luis Obispo plant will further support overall digital initiatives to meet the growing needs of wine producers, as well as other consumer product markets, that require packaging enhancements with special visual effects.

 WS Packaging Group, Inc., with more than 45 years of experience, is one of the largest printing and label converting operations in North America. It operates 21 manufacturing facilities and produces high-quality packaging products. Its customers range in size from small businesses to large, high-volume manufacturers and consumer product goods companies doing business locally, nationally, and in marketplaces worldwide. WS Packaging Group is majority owned by J.W. Childs Associates, L.P. (JWC), a private equity firm based in Boston, Mass., investing in middle-market growth companies. Since 1995, JWC has invested in over 40 companies, with a transaction value of more than $12 billion.
