In North America, changing demographics are causing massive shifts in how packaging is developed, marketed and distributed. The baby boomer generation is proojected at 76 million members strong and is projected to control 53 percent of the $706 billion spent on groceries. Male boomers are now living to almost 75 years of age and female boomers are living to nearly 80. The growing aging population is an increasingly important consumer segment and is creating a demand for healthier foods and convenience packaging. We discuss solutions for meeting today's demands.

May Open House a success:

The open house featured our new Euroflex CI running at 1500 FPM and Eltromat's integrated Auto Impression and Registration system. Attendees witnessed a new job changeover (without prior memory recall) that minimized waste to under 100 meters on vibrationless, monoblock mounted decks. The result: the first Euroflex CI has been sold in less than a month.
Attendees were also able to view a updated design to our FlexoJet-S with shaftless unwind and rewinds as well as and Eco and SFX stack press. The open house took place in the third wing of our recently built 162,000 square foot facility overlooking Taichung's manufacturing district.
