BC company invests in new printing press, label converter and label laminator.
Great Little Box Co. Ltd. (GLBC), founded in 1982 in Richmond, BC, says the purchases will help expand its product line.
The new equipment includes a digital label printing press, a digital label converting machine and a digital laminator.
GLBC’s HP Indigo WS6800 digital printing press allows the company to complete all digital production in-house. An AB Graphic International’s Digicon Series 3 digital label converting machine comes with a 50T Hot Foil & Emboss unit called “Big Foot”, one of only five of its kind in North America.
The unit produces small, short runs of simple labels all the way up to high-end multiple foiled jobs for the wine and beverage markets.
And a Stock LLM/HP label laminator provides corrugated customers with higher-end boxes, trays and displays.
The company expects the installation at its Richmond plant to be completed by the fourth quarter.
GLBC also has operations in Victoria, Kelowna and Everett, Wash.
