Ox Industries is increasing efficiency and production capacity with a $5 million investment in new high-speed converting lines across multiple facilities. This sophisticated technology will positively impact the productivity of Ox Industries’ vertically integrated tube and core and protective packaging plants and seamlessly merge with current operations and Ox-owned URB (uncoated recycled paperboard) mill network. Each converting line will have the most innovative automatic roll handling and finished product packaging technology to improve ergonomics, decrease on-the-job injuries, increase productivity, and enhance quality control.
“We embrace continuous investment that pairs with our efficiency and employee safety values. This equipment will highlight our recent acquisitions while giving us a broader footprint to serve our customers,” said Ox Industries CEO Kevin Hayward.
All lines will be fully operational in 12 months as Ox Industries strives to be the number one supplier of paper tubes and cores and green protective packaging.
Ox Industries is a leader in the manufacturing of 100% recycled paperboard, specialty papers, paper tubes and cores, and protective packaging. Ox is a vertically integrated company operating five recycled paperboard mills and eight paper tube, protective packaging, and specialty converting plants with more than 600 employees in 10 states.
