PaperWorks Expands Baldwinsville, New York Paper Converting Facility

PaperWorks, a full-service provider of recycled paperboard and specialized folding cartons for packaging applications, will invest $25 million in new state-of-the-art equipment to enhance its North American production capacity at its converting facility in Baldwinsville, New York.

Installation of the equipment will take place in phases starting October 2020 and will be completed by the first quarter 2021. According to company officials, “the investment will allow the company to maintain a leading position in high fidelity printing and design embellishment capabilities. PaperWorks continues to bring value-added print and design options to customer brands, enabling them to differentiate their products on the shelf and deliver the first moment of truth to consumers.”

“This represents another major step forward for PaperWorks in being an innovation leader in the industry and it is an integral part of our strategic plan for the company,” says C. Anderson “Andy” Bolton, President and CEO of PaperWorks. “This new capital investment in printing and finishing technology will expand our innovation capabilities and give us the ability to grow with best in class assets.”

The announcement comes shortly after the investment in new equipment and technology purchased for the company’s Greensboro, North Carolina converting facility, officials added. The new equipment at both facilities will improve reliability, increase packaging design and performance opportunities for customers. It will also enhance the company’s cross-border service capabilities.

“We continue to proactively serve our customers by anticipating needs and studying market trends,” says Bolton. “Our investments reflect our growth as a company, and further demonstrate our commitment to innovation. We are confident that this exciting new investment will be highly successful.”

PaperWorks specializes in providing folding carton solutions for a wide variety of market sectors including food, beverage, personal care, pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals and medical devices and is also known for its state-of-the art, extended color gamut printing capability, which creates shelf-differentiating graphics.

The company has invested in state-of-the-art technology over the past three years to upgrade its paperboard mills and folding carton converting plants to be at the forefront of innovation and market differentiation. The company is committed to the highest sustainable forestry and procurement standards. Product certifications include the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and 100% Recycled Paperboard Alliance (RPA100).
