Providing New Perspective to Meet the Unique Challenges
of the Personal Care, Food and Confectionary Industries

The Pickering plant (which is fondly referred to as the “mothership”) is an 85,000 square foot, ISO-certified facility that specializes in high-quality folding cartons for the food, liquor, personal care, neutraceutical and pharmaceutical industries.

With Speed to Market and an ever-changing Landscape, Pickering has the latest in manufacturing equipment offering both printing processes including a recently installed “Primographic Press” that is already delivering award winning and sustainable “minded” products. (Blackberry and Prilosec)

The new system is a roll-fed hybrid of flexo and letterpress, capable of printing UV and water-based inks up to 200-line screen. Some of the advantages include its ability to handle multiple colour reverse, foil transfer, emboss/deboss, and cut/crease – all in-line. The system uses 10 print stations, modular cutting, creasing, and embossing to successfully manage the entire converting process in a single pass.

With this process we are producing state-of-the-art litho-quality in a flexo-style environment.
