Hi there, so glad you have checked out my blog! Just a little bit about myself; I am a Mom to 3 lovely children, and my husband and I have a happy life together, right here in Ingersoll. I work full time at Ingersoll Paper Box, which is my family’s business. I am the 4th generation to work here. I started the blog because I wanted to share great stories about my life...and even funny moments. Just a little something to think about.
Well it’s that time of year when the summer weather starts
to cool off; the kids are back to school, and the fall season of tradeshows
ramp up.As much as I have a hard time
being away from home and work, I do enjoy seeing the newest technology in the
This year our very own Jeff Brooks, Operations Manager and
Brad Orchard, Diecutting and Finishing Area leader went to Chicago’s Print’13
show.This was promising trip; we have
been on the hunt for new quality enhancing equipment and Masterworks (Automatic
Sheet Inspection Machine Manufacture) was going showcase their carton
inspection system at the show.Both Brad and Jeff were amazed at the
functionality of the machine, and we decided to purchase it and have it
delivered and installed at IPB by end of September.
As suppliers to the healthcare and pharmaceutical
industries, we recognize that we need to upgrade our capacities in the
inspection area and up until this year; there wasn’t anything on the market
that would perform the way we needed it to.But alas, the time has arrived and we are expecting the delivery of our
newest inspection system.The system
will scan each box and compare it to our customer approved PDF.It’s quite amazing!This machine runs at a very high speed,
separates the good product from the bad.And from what we know, it’s a first for Canada!
As I write this blog today, I am
sitting in an airport in Germany. We are here to look at new printing presses.
We haven’t decided exactly what we are getting yet, but I am amazed at the
technology that can be done during the printing process. I have met some
brilliant and inspirational people on my travels – what makes this more
exciting for me is that we are bringing all of this knowledge back to IPB to
enhance our own facility.
Good things are a comin’!I can hardly wait to announce the next purchase!
Stay tuned for more information on these exciting new pieces
