Transparent, Printex form new company
September 8, 2015 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Sept. 8, 2015 – Dave Dennison of Transparent Packaging and Dave Heller of Printex Packaging have announced the merger of their respective companies. The new company — Printex Transparent Packaging — claims to be the largest plastic box manufacturer in North America, delivering plastic folding cartons from its three design centres and two manufacturing plants within Canada and the U.S.
According to the parties, this merger “works to keep valuable packaging jobs in Canada and the U.S. while offering producers of consumer products consistent quality and faster turnaround times,” adding that the new company is now “uniquely positioned” to supply the industry and bring value packaging on-shore.
Selling to the trade as a subcontractor and direct to consumer brand owners, Printex Transparent Packaging offers solutions that can be hand-packed or filled on automated packaging lines. It also works with equipment manufacturers to help automate its client’s plastic folding carton assembly process. Its areas of specialization include:
• plastic folding cartons,
• hybrid paper/plastic cartons,
• rigid clear/printed window affixing, and
• point of purchase displays.
Boasting more than 60-plus years of combined experience, the company operates production facilities in Montreal, Que., and New York, N.Y.
