PaperWorks Industries, Inc., Bala Cynwyd, Pa., announced plans to make a $9 million investment over the next year to expand the capabilities of its Boehmer Box folding carton manufacturing facility in Canada. The plant was one of the facilities acquired from CanAmPac in July. 

The investment will include new sheet-fed lithographic printing presses and related carton-making equipment. Upgrading the 340,000 square feet of manufacturing and warehouse space will enable the Boehmer plant to increase carton production by almost 75%. The facility manufactures folding cartons for a variety of products, including dry and frozen food, beverage and institutional foodservice, among others.

“We purchased Boehmer Box because of its demonstrated excellence in operational effectiveness, customer service and quality,” says Kevin Kwilinski, president and CEO. “We now want to leverage that strong foundation to build a best-in-class site. The goal is to deliver even better quality and service to our growing folding carton customer base—from concept to carton commercialization.”
