Martin Automatic has formalized the sale of an LRD automatic rewinder to a Wisconsin-based pressure-sensitive label manufacturer, LMI Packaging, at Labelexpo Americas 2022.
The LRD rewinder is the most recent of Martin sales to LMI which has a bank of Mark Andy Performance Series flexo presses producing a variety of printed packaging. One of the key factors in making this latest investment was the praise previous LRD units have attracted from LMI’s press operators on the production floor
‘Our operators are the experts on the floor, so we listen to them very closely,’ said LMI, CEO JP Moran. ‘And when they tell us they like a machine, we take that seriously when we make our decisions.’
‘Our goal is to always make the operator’s job easier, so hearing what JP had to say is just music to our ears. Increasing productivity, improving downtime, and just making people’s lives easier is what we’re always striving for,’ concluded Gavin Rittmeyer, vice president sales and marketing at Martin Automatic.
