KBA Australasia was not willing to comment on the configuration and specifications of the press, but one look at the computer-generated image of the press makes it clear to see that this is no ordinary sheetfed press. Geoff Boshell, Anzpac general manager was also unwilling to comment at this time as the press was still a long way off from being installed, let alone operational.
Dave Lewis, KBA Australasia general manager for sheetfed presses, says, "This is wonderful news for Australia, Anzpac and KBA Australasia".
Established in 1900, Anzpac has evolved from a family-owned firm into one of Australia’s premier manufacturers of high-volume folding carton packaging. In 1986 it was purchased by Rothmans Holdings and is now the printing and packaging arm of British American Tobacco Australasia. The company also supplies packaging for leading brands of fast food, confectionery, medical diagnostics, fabric care and bakery products.
Anzpac was one of the first packaging companies in Australia to attain ISO 14001 environmental accreditation which compliments Anzpac’s existing ISO 9001 and HACCP accreditations. Year for year it recycles some 2300 tonnes of board, plastic and liquid waste.
