America’s Select Products Holdings has invested in a PCMC-supplied Amica consumer rewinder line, a STAX-supplied Prima wrapper, a STAX RCP-15 case-packer and all connecting conveyors.
The company – which was established eight years ago as a tissue converter – plans to install the equipment at a new southern US plant by the end of 2020.
It will then start delivering products outside of its current distribution areas around New York and Pennsylvania.
Nick Galante, Select Products chief executive, said: “We wish we could have received the equipment this summer because the Covid-19 pandemic is causing many people to use private-label brands when no other products are left in the stores.
“With the investment, we will be able to distribute product all the way through the southern and central United States.”
Select Products Holdings is a privately held tissue converter in its eighth year of operation with locations in Vandling, PA, Huntington, NY, and a soon to be finalised location.
It offers high-quality paper products ranging from facial and bath tissue to paper towels and napkins.
With the opening of its Southern plant, its expanded capacity will allow the company to focus on the region’s private label market.
