The additional capacity from the press and slitter will support demand for high-quality coated healthcare grade paper and film. “We are thrilled for this opportunity to continue to support the needs of our medical customers with the best coated products to meet the demanding needs of medical device manufacturers,” said Chris Cosgrove, VP and General Manager, Amcor Flexibles Americas. “With this expansion our Milwaukee facility is perfectly poised to deliver the value and service that our customers have come to expect.”

The stunning simplicity of the MP4 Press will allow Amcor to offer better performance at a competitive cost for our customers.
