Sutherland Packaging, a leader in corrugated point-of-purchase displays and packaging for retail locations and club stores, has expanded operations with a new 19,000-square-foot warehouse in Newton, just minutes from its headquarters in Andover. In addition to a significant increase in overall storage space, the new facility will help the company improve its production workflow and expand logistics capabilities.
For Sutherland Packaging, the new space provides across-the-board versatility whose full value requires a background in its business model. The company’s mainstay is an innovative form of direct printing technique that removes the need for a lithographic label to be applied over corrugated substrates, effectively replacing litho dollars with just a few cents of ink. Ideal for the retail consumer products market and club store displays, this advanced 5-color technology saves on both material costs and shipping times. The ability to forgo label printing also allows customers to quickly recoup their initial short-term investment in the direct print process.
