Fox Packaging Acquires Additional Press to Increase Production Capacity and Meet Growing Demand
MCALLEN, TX - As it doubles down on expansion, Fox Packaging has acquired additional press in the form of a UTECO printing press. This will be added to the company’s dedicated printing facility.
“Expanding our manufacturing capacity is essential to meet growing customer demand and it also presents Fox Packaging with an opportunity to make fast turnaround on large print runs,” shared Lucas Fox, Director of Operations.
According to a press release, the UTECO press is a modern equipment solution that executes unmatchable print quality, extremely fast job changes, and can effortlessly run up to 10 colors, with four-color process and Pantone colors.
“This technology visually captures brands' colors and messaging in a way that catches a consumer’s eye and builds brand recognition and loyalty,” said Victoria Lopez, Marketing. “As a member of the Sustainable Packaging Coalition®, we are an approved printer of the How2Recycle® label, a program that highlights a universal recycling language on packaging to provide consistent recycling information.”
The UTECO Onyx adds to Fox Packaging’s overall capacity as it strategically retires units that have served their lifetime. Implementing new technology helps maintain competitive lead-times with expanded printing capabilities and is overall more efficient for long print runs.
“Our teams understand that circularity is a critical component of service and operational competence,” continued Fox. “UTECO flexographic printing equipment is environmentally friendly and responsibly uses energy, a feature we are exceptionally proud of.”
As the company continues to update its equipment, every update is made to advantageously benefit its operations. Both retailers and consumers are expecting mindful manufacturing processes, and Fox Packaging’s constant improvement on waste reduction and sustainable initiatives makes it an ideal industry partner.
