Polykote has upgraded its lab, equipment and launched a new website. Polykote.com is streamlined, easy to navigate and is mobile-friendly.
The addition of a proprietary, 62-in.-wide coater was the beginning of the planned expansion. “Polykote was at a point where we needed to take the next step and make investments to reach our strategic goals," says John Guzzo, CEO of Polykote. “Adding the new coater, the re-moisturization unit and in-line slitting increases our capacity and capabilities to the point where we can pursue new, larger opportunities with stricter tolerances than we were able to in the past. We’ve added an internal resource to help promote Polykote and make sure the industry is aware of Polykote and what we do. We are also becoming more active in the industry and for the first time, joined AIMCAL which we feel is a perfect fit for Polykote."
Earlier this year, a re-moisturization unit was added to the coater to help with curl properties. The most recent addition was the ability to slit in-line. This allows Polykote to eliminate the secondary slitting operation in over 50% of orders processed on the coater. Label stock, laminates, tapes and tags can all be slit to width - fast and with a high level of accuracy.
