CGR Products Upgrades Production Plants in North Carolina and Alabama
According to company officials, the 30,000 sq. ft. Greensboro expansion increases the current footprint by almost 50% and will ease crowded conditions in manufacturing and warehousing areas and position the company to pursue new opportunities.
“CGR’s growth over the past several years has fueled new equipment purchases and the need to stock higher volumes of inventory necessary to support that growth. This growth led to overcrowded manufacturing and warehouse conditions that hampered additional growth opportunities and created an inefficient working environment,” company officials said. “Future business growth should lead to additional labor and machinery necessary to support that growth.”
CGR added its 2nd Bruno wide format die cutting press, to increase capacity for large volume orders. This new press has a cutting size of 84” x 75” and uses a power-driven belt to move material and parts along.
“This new press is ideal for large volume customers or large surface area parts in the automotive, transportation, heavy equipment, and filtration markets” said Alan Johnson, Sales Manager at CGR Products.
With two Bruno wide format die cutting presses, CGR Products is ideal for truckload and trailer drop converting. These presses have dedicated loading docks for truckload in-out services.
At another plant, CGR in Decatur, Alabama, added a new high volume Delta Modtech rotary die cutting machine. This machine accommodates die cut parts up to 13” wide. Individual servo controls at each die station allow for precision tolerances and independent speeds of each other to utilize maximum material savings.
According to company officials, this new rotary system is ideal for high speed, cost-effective and precision cut parts on high volume orders. It is ideal for “kiss cut” or “peel and stick” applications. Kiss cutting is performed by cutting through the part down to, but not through, the release liner. The parts are supplied on a roll or pad for easy “peel and stick” application.
