Richmond, California (EastBayDaily) — Monvera Glass Décor, a leading provider of screen printed labels is pleased to announce the completion of $1.6M expansion plan. The expansion was initiated back in October 2011 with the relocation to the Ford Point facility in Point Richmond, CA. In addition to being located closer to wine and spirits customers in Sonoma, Napa and San Francisco, the new 42,000 square foot facility allowed for the installation of a third production line which was rolled out over 2013.
Monvera increased production capacity more than 50%, in large part due to the purchase of a Fermac F06 CNC machine for screen printed wine labels. Monvera is the only decorator in North America to deploy this newly developed technology. CNC technology allows for perfect control of the printing process, pixel-perfect art registration and flawless replication. The machine is capable of printing full wraps on regular, oval and square shaped glass, in addition to printing on the neck and shoulder of the bottle. Additional capital expenditures include the addition of second decorating lehr, improved automation and a spray coating treatment unit.
"We continue to see growing interest in direct printing on bottles as a decoration alternative to paper labels." says Caitriona Anderson, Monvera’s VP of Sales & Marketing. “This expansion allows us to keep up with market demand and service larger accounts. We have already seen a great interest in the unique capabilities that our new printing equipment offers and we’re excited to see where that will lead us in 2014.”
Monvera Glass Décor will be exhibiting at Unified Symposium at booth #404 from January 28-30.
