A group of eight companies has announced the startup of a new industry group of converting manufacturers and associated companies who will meet to share industry news and foster growth. The group will hold its first industry-wide meeting October 18 at St. Norbert's Bemis Conference Center in Green Bay from 10 a.m. to noon. The event, which will feature three Wisconsin converting industry speakers, will be followed by a networking lunch.
Flexible packaging is one of the leading-edge converting segments and one of the organizing companies is American FlexPack. The company will provide an overview of the single-use wipes marketplace on October 18. Also speaking will be American Custom Converting (ACC). This Green Bay converter rewinds and slits nonwovens materials and converts them into folded wipers and other products. Additionally, a representative from S&S Specialty Systems, Iron River, WI, will talk about trends in processing converted nonwovens and tissue products and how value is added to make new high-demand products.
