Huhtamaki FS Delta unveils its flexographic printing & converting facility. 55,000sq ft of new investment in Belfast.

Huhtamaki's production capabilities in Belfast have recently been expanded to include a new 55,000 sq ft facility housing one of Europe’s most advanced carton manufacturing environments.

In 2014, Huhtamaki FS Delta’s core production and administration base has been significantly enhanced with the completion of an additional 55,000 sq ft production development. The new building houses the latest Hi-Definition rotary flexographic CI press with bespoke downstream obverse and reverse functional barrier coating capability (running reel-to-reel). It is teamed with both rotary die-cutting and large format platen options, giving ultimate flexibility in conjunction with high-speed productivity.

Fully automated colour and register controls are integrated into the production set up. Finishing options for both high speed flat-folded cartons and a new set up for nested clamshell are fed from the new flexo line.
