Apex North America Expands Its Manufacturing Capabilities with New Machines for North America


DONORA, PA – Apex North America continues its expansion in the North American market with the addition of a 7M ALE Laser Engraving Machine and a 4.5M Full CNC Machine.

These machines are unique to Apex allowing precise application for every engraving Apex offers, including the globally patented GTT2.0®, with improved tolerances down to .0002. 

The latest 7M laser is being added for the high demand of customers installing jumbo size presses aimed at corrugated and towel/tissue printing. 

Dave McBeth, Vice President of Apex North America explains, "The installation of this state-of-the-art laser underlines Apex’s commitment to the corrugated market and once again sees Apex making great leaps forward over our competition in how we can service customers within the corrugated anilox marketplace. This new ALE laser is the largest of its kind built in the world, allowing Apex North America to service the growing market of corrugated jumbo presses coming into the market."

Josh Scalise, Plant Manager of Apex North America, also comments on the benefits of adding all of these machines to production, “The addition of these two new machines is a huge advantage for Apex North America. We’re able to service our customers even better than before with quicker turnaround times while still giving them the Apex quality that they’ve always received. It also creates more job opportunities, so we’re able to expand the North American team.”
