Delta Packaging, the independent manufacturer of printed folding carton packaging serving the food manufacturing industry, has now more than doubled its production capacity in Belfast, Northern Ireland, by investing in a new production new line.
Neal McCone, director of Delta Packaging, explained: “We spent a lot of time to examine all the possibilities, benchmarking everything available globally. In the end we chose Komori-Chambon as our ideal partner for the offline rotary die cutting.
“We are delighted to have made this choice – the Komori-Chambon solution is the best fit for our growth aspirations, meeting the high productivity, low waste and demanding engineering expectations. We now have an incredibly productive line, designed for delivering the demands of large brand owners.”
Komori-Chambon specialises in the design and manufacture of web offset and gravure presses and rotary die-cutters. It was founded through the merger of French company, Machines Chambon, and the Komori Group from Japan.
Delta’s new production line is unique in Europe for producing such high volume packaging with high engineering specifications. Products from the new line include a range of cartons for global food service brands.
“The new Komori-Chambon rotary-die cutter installed in Belfast enables us to have incredible technical capabilities, and the very stable profile, accuracy and super-high volumes sought by the large brands,” added McCone. “The customer has to be big enough to get their production made on the new line.”
As well as the huge production development in Belfast, Delta Packaging has established a manufacturing capability with European Packaging Solutions, in Gliwice, Poland, from Q3 2015. Delta Packaging will now have two rotary die cutting units amongst their equipment to service their European customers.
