The Fencor Packaging Group, along with American partners CSI, has today announced the planned installation of a world class sheet feeding operation within the UK…

This £10 million pound investment is being made in order to offer you unparallel levels of customer service and following several years of heavy price fluctuations a degree of pricing stability for corrugated based products.

The Fencor Packaging Group have chosen CSI to work with for their huge amount of experience within this sector and their significant paper purchasing contracts.

At this stage in time the following press release has been made to the market via CSI .

Corrugated Synergies International (CSI), the Seattle USA based specialists in sheet feeding and corrugated operations are pleased to announce the forthcoming formation of a sheet feed corrugated plant located in the Midlands, UK.  The company perceives that the time is right for a new entrant into UK sheet feeding, bringing an independent alternative and extending capacity in a tight market.

John Perullo, President of CSI stated “The introduction of additional capacity using modern technology and advanced manufacturing methods will significantly improve traditional sheet plant values and the subsequent benefits to their customers.  Our analysis of the market suggests that improving the current service levels to UK sheet plants will enhance their flexibility and competitiveness without disrupting the overall market for corrugated products.”

It is intended that the plant will begin production mid 2014 following an intensive capital project and utilising the best manufacturing equipment available in the world.  CSI’s industry experience over the last three decades or so, extends to the establishment of nine Sheet-Feeder operations throughout the US and Canada. In addition three major full-line corrugator equipped box plants have been established as far afield as Chile, along with sheet plant and other existing plant improvements, all on behalf of clients worldwide. This represents a total of 14 full line corrugators as well as multiple upgrades to existing machines.

Victor Pinto, Vice President of CSI adds, “This will be a world class operation using the most technologically advanced machinery together with the proven expertise of CSI. Our commitment to a long term presence in the UK is supported by strong paper contracts and established suppliers.”
