ATLANTA , October 24, 2022 (press release) –

WestRock Company (NYSE: WRK), an industry leader of sustainable paper and packaging solutions, is showcasing four packaging machines alongside its sustainable packaging solutions at this year’s PACK EXPO® International trade show, which began yesterday at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois, and concludes on October 26. 

With a range of fiber-based packaging solutions and automated packaging machinery fulfilling the needs of multiple industries, attendees can engage in live in-booth demonstrations and experiences, including:   

  • Meta® 170 Borndigital – an intelligent labeling machine that offers a fully integrated and versatile “blank-to-smart packaging” solution for better box performance in production and distribution to maximize structural integrity.
  • Pak On Demand Mailer System – a sustainable e-commerce machine that eliminates plastic, optimizes labor and cuts out unnecessary void fill to deliver increased productivity and sustainability within seconds. 
  • PFS-2500 Dual Head Punnet – a packaging machine suitable for small format trays, tills and punnets that is specifically engineered to provide flexibility and serve as a cost-effective and operationally efficient option for plastic replacement.
  • CanCollar Fortuna® – a newly patented high-speed packaging machine for applying CanCollar® and a suite of other minimalist, paperboard multipack solutions that eliminate plastic when bundling standard and sleek cans.

“Our diverse portfolio of intellectual property and packaging machines adds value to customer operations, and reduces waste to help make our planet better,” said John Perkins, vice president, Global Packaging Systems. “By innovating boldly and packaging sustainably we arrive at thoughtful product design, make positive contributions to the circular economy and ultimately deliver on WestRock’s promise of a more sustainable future.”

Within its exhibit space WestRock is also showcasing CanCollar®X, the newest addition to the CanCollar® family that brings a glue-free solution to large multipacks alongside other innovative, sustainable packaging solutions.

In addition to the automated packaging machines and products on display, WestRock is serving as a silver sponsor for the Emerging Brands Summit, an inaugural one-day event that brings new brands together with manufacturing and packaging experts to develop a blueprint for scaling operations. 

Onsite presentations by WestRock thought leaders will share insights on how the company is uniquely approaching packaging innovations to drive sustainable, automated solutions that help customers meet consumer demand.
