ATLANTA, April 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Graphic Packaging International, Inc. (NYSE: GPK) will be exhibiting at the Craft Brewers Conference (CBC) and BrewExpo America® from May 3-6, 2016 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. At this year's show, the Company will demonstrate its Quikflex® 300 packaging machinery solution along with the latest packaging innovations. The Quikflex 300 is a small-footprint continuous motion paperboard packaging system, which runs up to 70 ppm and was designed with the needs of the craft brewing industry in mind. Using high quality materials and proven technology, Graphic Packaging International builds machines that grow with craft beer customers.
Doug Hicks, Director of Packaging Machinery said, "The Quikflex 300 packaging system is a workhorse, designed to run a wide variety of containers (bottles, cans, and PET) and pack sizes (from 2-packs to 12-packs) with quick change-overs. This machine provides craft brewers with a moderate speed, entry-level machine to increase their packaging line efficiency and keep pace with product demand."
At the CBC's BrewExpo America tradeshow, visitors will see the full Quikflex 300 packaging system on display. Each day of the show, a different packaging configuration will be featured (6-pack cans, 12-pack cans, and 12-pack bottles), so check back daily to see what's new.
For those craft brewers who want to talk about their packaging needs and ways to automate or scale up their packaging lines, Graphic Packaging International's knowledgeable craft beer packaging team will be on hand during all days of the show.
"What makes Graphic Packaging unique is our integrated approach. We offer a range of paper-based secondary packaging including baskets, fully enclosed multipacks for cans and glass bottles, and LithoFlute® corrugated packaging. Our multipack machinery systems support automation and scale up of packaging lines. Come by our booth to meet the sales and service teams dedicated to servicing the craft beer industry," says Greg McKenna, Director of Specialty Beverage.
