Flexographic press manufacturer widens its range of solutions to include digital printing.
Paper Converting Machine Company (PCMC), part of the Barry-Wehmiller Converting Solutions Platform, is joining with RDP Marathon Inc. and IPT Digital, and expanding its offerings for customers to include digital printing technology.
RDP Marathon has delivered engineered machine solutions for a variety of printing and packaging markets for 30 years. Through a partnership with IPT Digital, RDP Marathon also provides systems that convert existing presses into high-speed digital printing platforms, broadening its capabilities and reach across multiple packaging markets. Adding this innovative technology to PCMC’s portfolio of solutions not only will accelerate the company’s growth in its current markets, but also support its expansion into new markets, particularly the folded carton business.
“We’re eager to have RDP Marathon and IPT Digital join the PCMC family,” said Stan Blakney, PCMC President. “As we look to augment our print business, their expertise will enable us to quickly break into new markets and diversify our product portfolio. Digital printing continues to experience substantial growth, and we’re excited to enter into that market through this acquisition.”
Barry-Wehmiller Chairman and CEO Bob Chapman added: “We are thrilled to partner with RDP Marathon and IPT Digital, as this investment highlights our commitment to advancing the technology and service we can provide for current and future customers, while cultivating our unique culture of care and collaboration.”
