Aquaflex moves
to Pennsylvania
Aquaflex, the Canadian manufacturer of narrow web flexo presses, will relocate to the Duncansville, PA, USA plant of F.L. Smithe Machine Company, which acquired Aquaflex last year.
“The move will simplify operations and it should be completed in early 2005,” says Mac Rosenbaum, vice president of F.L. Smithe. “We will continue operations in Montreal until the transition is complete, so there will be no interruptions in press deliveries. The Montreal operation will continue to provide engineering and technical services and work with our engineering team in Duncansville. Product support will be provided from both Montreal and Duncansville.”
F.L. Smithe, which manufactures envelope converting equipment, acquired Aquaflex in March 2004.
“The Aquaflex name has always stood for innovation and high productivity, and that tradition will continue,” says Rosenbaum. “This is not a side venture for F.L. Smithe. We view Aquaflex flexographic printing products as a very important part of our future. That means we will apply the resources necessary to make Aquaflex an industry leader. This should be good news for existing Aquaflex customers because it guarantees continued product support and a solid upgrade path in the future.”
