West Chicago, IL, July 28, 2014 –(PR.com)– Loggerhead Deco Inc, a leading decorator of screen printed glass bottles has completed the final phase of a $2.1M growth plan. The move to the West Chicago facility in June 2013 provided the additional space required for the company’s growth. The company also successfully consolidated the Batavia operations into this one facility. The new 27,000 square foot building was designed around the installation of a multicolor Kammann K15-M CNC production line.
This state of the art machine is the most advanced printing machine in the world for decorating glass bottles at high speeds. Providing full CNC technology allows for perfect print registration. The machine is capable of printing full bottle coverage on round, oval and square shaped bottles in addition to printing on the neck. The Kammann enhances the capability to provide detailed printing along with process color printing (CMYK).
This equipment further demonstrates Loggerhead’s commitment to the green movement and the reduction of packaging carbon footprint. The facility is setup to decrease or eliminate VOC (volatile organic compounds) from the decorating process by utilizing highly efficient ultraviolet light (UV).
“The markets we service require us to provide leading edge decorating capabilities along with a high awareness of our environment. The Kammann machine provides all of that ability and so much more to our current printing capacity,” says Steve Gilbertson, Loggerhead’s Founder and CEO. “We have already been experiencing growth with this expansion and have seen multiple customers grow because of this effort. The future is very exciting.”
