Royal Paper Box Enhances Production with New KBA 41-inch Press

KBA North America announces that Royal Paper Box, a leading Montebello, CA folding carton converter, has made an impressive new addition to its pressroom: a new KBA 41-inch sheetfed press. The prestigious firm caters to a globally diverse customer base including high-end cosmetics and demanding bio-medical packaging.

“We feel the addition of the KBA press has significantly enhanced and complemented our pressroom,” says Jim Hodges, president of Royal Paper Box, who recently won the 2011 Robert T. Gair Award from the Paperboard Packaging Council (PPC), its highest distinction. The award recognizes individuals who have demonstrated a lifetime of significant and lasting contributions to the paperboard packaging industry.

For Royal Paper Box, which is a global leader in the packaging field, the new KBA brings numerous advantages. With its powerful ability to print at high speeds, its automation brings efficiency gains in makeready and running speeds and it will improve production scheduling while reducing costs.

“Throughout more than 70 years in business, our company has been dedicated to our customer’s needs,” says Hodges. “Our focus is to produce ‘packaging that sells your product’ while we keep our commitment to quality, service, and speed-to-market.”
