American Packaging Corporation has completed a $17.5m ‘sustainable’ expansion of its Wisconsin printing and laminating facilities.

The company, which manufactures flexible packaging laminations for several markets including food, maintained a focus on sustainability throughout the expansion - which included the upgrade of facilities and construction of an additional 100,000 square feet operating space.

Sky lights and windows were added to provide natural lighting and a regenerative thermal oxidiser was installed.

Laser scoring equipment, material handling systems, rotogravure presses and other lamination machinery were added to the facility.

“The owners are impressed by the commitment this facility has shown and believe that through strategic investment in our facilities and most importantly attracting and retaining the best people in the industry, we will continue to thrive as a company,” ​said company CEO Peter Schottland.

This investment follows a $12.7m expansion at a New York facility in 2009 and a $16.5m upgrade of its Story City facility in 2010.
