Menasha Packaging has placed an order for a Highcon Beam 2C digital die cutting system for corrugated production, to be installed at a North American site, the third Highcon system purchased by Menasha in less than half a year, following the purchase and recent installation of two Highcon Beam 2 systems.

Menasha is part of Menasha Corporation, an enterprise established over 175 years ago with approximately 7000 employees and 100 facilities across North America and Europe. They help their customers to protect, move, and promote their products, producing folding carton packaging, corrugated packaging and display merchandising solutions for over 2500 global brands.

Mensaha’s commitment to Highcon’s digital die cutting solutions has also led them to join the Vulcan Foundation Customer Programme, giving them priority for earliest delivery of Highcon’s next generation digital die cutting platform for corrugated production. Menasha is the sixth and final member to join this programme. The Vulcan, announced on 26 March, 2024, at the pre-drupa event, will look to address a gap in current corrugated die cutting solutions.

President of Menasha Packaging Michael Riegsecker commented, ‘We are impressed with how fast we have started production ramp up. Within three weeks from systems delivery, we have commenced full ramp up on both systems and we are certainly off to a good start. This has given us the confidence to move into the next phase and extend digital die cutting to corrugated.’

Shlomo Nimrodi, Highcon’s CEO, said, ‘Menasha’s decision to purchase its third Highcon system and join the Vulcan Foundation Customer Program shortly after the first two units is a strong testament to the focus of Highcon’s entire team and of the potential of Highcon systems to solve customer needs and create value. We look forward to being a valuable partner to Menasha Packaging and further growing our footprint there.’
