US company Boise is making key investments in the converting operations of its packaging business. The largest capital improvement is the installation of a new 110 inch corrugator at the company’s Central Texas Corrugated (CTC) sheet feeder facility in Waco, Texas, which is expected to start up in third quarter 2013.

"We’re excited about this and several other investment projects, which are aimed at reducing operating costs, improving quality, and increasing production capabilities," enthuses Dave Kunz, vice president of packaging. "The new corrugator will replace two existing corrugators, which will improve our operating efficiency and lower our costs. We expect it will add 180,000msf of low cost production capacity, while simultaneously allowing us to reduce operating costs."

Boise has also completed a recent rebuild of its corrugator at its converting facility in Salt Lake City, Utah. This has substantially increased the speed and throughput of the machine, reduced waste, and improved product quality. Additionally, the company has installed a new high speed flexo machine at its converting facility in Wallula, Washington. It replaces two older achines and improves efficiency through reduced setup time, along with lower operating costs.
