Wilson Manufacturing Opens New Toronto Facility to Expand Service to U.S. and Canadian Customers
ST. LOUIS—June 28, 2014—Wilson Manufacturing, a supplier to the flexographic industry and pioneer in machine-sharpened dies, is opening a new facility in Toronto.
The new facility will initially provide repair and sharpening services for a wide range of converters in the greater Toronto area, as well as customers throughout Detroit and Buffalo. Area customers will benefit from greater accessibility to genuine Wilson service and support, and can count on cost efficiencies from reduced shipping costs as well.
In fact, it is estimated that a typical die requires retooling four to five times over its lifetime. Related cross-border shipping costs can reach upwards of 30 percent of the cost of the die. The new Wilson facility will help to significantly reduce such costs for these Canadian and U.S. customers.
"We are excited to bring our world-class service organization closer to the customers who count on Wilson to keep them productive and profitable," says Todd Westover, sales and marketing director of Wilson Manufacturing. "Our new Toronto facility will make it faster, easier and more affordable for these regional converters to handle all their rotary tooling needs."
The new facility begins operations on August 1, 2014. It is located at:
