Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Seydaco Packaging, Mississauga, Quebec, a manufacturer of stock and specialty paperboard products, has ordered a KBA-Flexotecnica EVO XD eight-color flexo press. It is set to arrive later this year. 

"The entire flexo web-line, including the new KBA-Flexotecnica eight-color CI plus two downstream units, as well as double roll stands with auto splicer and festoon and flatbed diecutter with rotary stripper, belt askew and delivery will be unique in North America," President of Seydaco David Seychell said. 

"Flexotecnica is known world-wide for its superior, gearless, sleeved, central impression flexographic printing presses. We’re excited to be operating one of these fine presses in our facility. It will be miles ahead of anything in its class considerations."

This isn’t the first KBA installation for Seydaco. The firm is also home to two six-color KBA Rapida 105 41-inch presses, a seven colour KBA Rapida 105 41-inch press, and one 10-color KBA Rapida 130 press with two coating stations equipped with UV coating/curing. 

Seychell believes the addition of the Flexotecnica will complement the mill’s existing sheet-fed arsenal and will allow his company to continue to offer competitive long-run carton production, possibly for export markets. 

The new press will be used to support all long-run requirements from every Seydaco-related location. Initially, it will target paperboard foodservice packaging requirements—where Seydaco and sister firm Groupe Ecco are already well positioned. In the future, the firm intends to attract private label owners and consumer packaged good companies. 

Seydaco has three sister firms: Groupe Ecco, a folding carton manufacturer in Quebec; Miramont Labels, based in Quebec; and National Carton & Coating, a mid-to-large volume manufacturer of custom printed folding cartons, stock chipboard boxes, and mailers based in Dayton, Ohio, USA. Seychell said these firms offer clients a wide variety of folding carton and pressure sensitive label services, whether the project requires small, medium or long run capabilities.
