Hammer Packaging announces building expansion

October 24, 2012

Construction on the company's corporate headquarters is expected to be completed by November 26 of this year.

Hammer Packaging has broken ground on a 13,000 square-foot expansion at its corporate headquarters location in Rochester, NY, USA. The addition will be constructed on the south side of the existing building and will house a third variable sleeve offset printing (VSOP) press, with room for a fourth in the future. This state-of-the-art facility also houses an array of large-format printing presses for producing cut & stack, roll-fed, in-mold, foam and shrink sleeve labels.

"This is a significant investment for our company," says James E. Hammer, president and CEO. "The decision for the building addition is to better maintain our present workflow and maintain as much cost effective manufacturing square footage as possible to support our aggressive sales growth."

The addition should be completed by November 26, 2012, which is the arrival time of the new equipment. Earlier this year, the company moved and expanded Flexo Operations to our Rochester Tech Park location with a second new narrow-web 10-color Nilpeter UV-Flexo press and an additional 60,000 square feet of space.
