Graphic West continues to invest in the support of our customers business needs. During the past 3 years we have increased our product offerings to include window patching, tray forming, and sheet to sheet laminating. Our growth is based on meeting the changing needs of those customers who had traditionally counted on Graphic West for support of their folding carton machinery. The Graphic West reputation for support and productions solutions comes from years of consistent support of Jagenberg folder gluers, case packers, and auxiliary equipment. In addition to our Jagenberg experience, Graphic West now offers that same level of proficiency with products from Heiber & Schroeder, Lamina Systems, and KAS.
The Heiber & Schroeder product line has proven to be an excellent fit within the Graphic West portfolio. For over 6 years now our customers have benifited when implementing these efficient, state-of-the-art Heiber & Schoeder tray forming lines. In May 2006, Heiber &Schoeder, Erkrath, Germany, selected Graphic West to exclusive represent their complete product offering including window patching, specialty products, and auxiliary equipment.
In July of 2006, Lamina System AB, Boras Sweden, the world leading supplier of sheet to sheet laminating/mounting and gluing machines, selected Graphic West as their exclusive USA/East Coast & Middle West agent. Lamina System's delivers innovative products that are compact, operator friendly machines that perform in both manual and automatic configurations. We are very excited about the ability to meet our customer's varied corrugated requirements.
Our latest addition to the Graphic West's service and support portfolio are the precision glue extrusion systems of KAS Systems, Kullstedt Germany. These systems are being successfully integrated with both the H+S and Lamina systems.
