Channeled Resources Group to install new SAM silicone-coating line in WI plant in Q2 2023
Chicago-based Channeled Resources Group (CRG), a manufacturer of blank shipping labels, release liner, and reportedly the world’s largest supplier of value-priced laminated papers and films, has purchased a new SAM North America silicone-coating line for its plant in Marathon City, WI. The coater will be installed in Q2 2023.
The 70-in.-wide silicone coater will be capable of running at 1,500 fpm. It will be focused on coating paper release liners of 25 to 80 lbs - including SCK, glassine, clay-coated and polycoated papers. According to CRG President/CEO Cindy White, “Channeled Resources purchased a new 65-in. silicone coater in 2019. With the increased demand in the marketplace, that machine is closing in on its capacity now. We need to add additional equipment, with a few bells and whistles to improve efficiencies, which will allow us to continue to grow our release-liner business. Our customers are growing, and we are growing with them.”
Don Teich, vp-Sales, SAM North America adds, “We’re thrilled to support Channeled Resources Group with the addition of this new coater. Our high-tech silicone coater will provide them with the expanded capacity that they need now and into the future.”
