Rotoflex brings manufacturing to Canada
Rotoflex’s Canadian regional office moved to a new, larger, 18,000sq ft showroom and technology centre near Toronto, in 2016. Following this, full production of new Rotoflex slitters, rewinders and die cutting machines – formerly managed at the Mark Andy headquarters location, near St Louis, Missouri – has now transferred to Toronto as well.
Continued sales growth over several years of Rotoflex’s offline finishing solutions, including the newly launched HSI, Vericut3 and Security Series has led to the expansion of the Canadian facility.
Kevin Gourlay, vice president of Rotoflex, said: “The Rotoflex brand continues to be strongly focused on design and providing advanced solutions to respond to our customers’ business. With many legacy design experts and technical specialists in Toronto, having our Canadian facility fully operational with manufacturing was a logical move.”
The manufacturing capacity at Mark Andy, resulting from the move, will accommodate the company’s substantial growth in the digital market. It will support the demand for its growing digital hybrid portfolio, including the production-level Digital Series, entry-level solution Digital One, and the Digital Plus program, which offers digital retrofits to existing flexo platforms.
Live machine demonstrations, retrofits and rebuilds, engineering development, and technical support and services are now all accessible from the Rotoflex Canadian facility. The Mark Andy Poland and UK regional demonstration facilities also showcase Rotoflex equipment, with worldwide representation available through local sales and distribution offices. “Rotoflex is now well-positioned for future growth,” concluded Gourlay.
