ESCABA PACKING starts operations in February, initially producing packing wooden crates for handicraft makers, selling other packaging materials and selling and buying recycled cardboard.
As part of an equipment renewal program, slitters and die cutting machines are purchased to manufacture boxes from cardboard sheets. The company starts sales of printed containers.
After several years’ sustained growth, the company reaches robust sales volumes of 200 tons of recycled cardboard (a year / a month), the first flexographic printing machine is bought and the company acquires full in-house container printing capabilities.
An EMBA gluer is added to expand our installed capacity and ESCABA PACKING starts a major overhaul of its policies, processes and internal procedures in order to achieve better control of raw materials as well as instill a continuous improvement culture all across the company.
The company purchases a WARD large format rotary die-cutter and a jumbo Bostitch stapler in order to open a produce container printing line.
The company is vertically integrated. ESCABA PACKING ventures into the corrugated cardboard business, achieving a momentum of market synergy that improves the quality of our products and services and enables us to offer highly competitive prices.
The company adds merchandise handling products (pallets, bags, trays and pads) and starts importing high-performance stock from the United States and Canada.
ESCABA PACKING is being externally audited to comply with the international parameters of the COSO internal control system as part of a renewed drive to improve the company’s policies and procedures for the benefit of our customers.
