Windmoeller & Hoelscher Corp.
23 New England Way
Lincoln, RI, 02865

Press release date: August 3, 2012

LINCOLN, RI - Accredo Packaging, located in Sugar Land, TX has placed a large order for flexographic printing and film extrusion equipment from Windmoeller & Hoelscher.

Commercialized in 2009, Accredo specializes in the manufacture of coextruded barrier films, towel & tissue overwrap film, shrink-bundling film, laminated, printed and unprinted roll stock, pouches and wicketed bags. "We're expanding in all the segments we identified as our target markets and need to add significant capacity to keep up with growth," states Rex Varn, Executive Vice President of Accredo.

Installation of a new MIRAFLEX CM 10 press with a print width of 41" and speeds of up to 1,650 ft/min was recently completed and the press is now up and running. The company has just placed an order for a second VISTAFLEX CL 10, with a print width of 67" and speeds of up to 2,600 ft/min with the fastest changeovers. W&H designed the VISTAFLEX to run at extremely high speeds while at the same time being very easy to use. Four complete print jobs can be set up and stored while the press is running and changeovers are made automatically at the push of a button. The Sugar Land plant houses W&H 10 color NOVOFLEX CL presses as well.

In addition, Accredo has also ordered two 5-layer VAREX blown film lines. Both lines are equipped with the high-output OPTICOOL air ring and are scheduled for 2013 installation. Accredo currently runs film on VAREX 3-layer and 9-layer lines for both barrier films and internal consumption.

Accredo is a registered member of the EPA's Green Power Partnership and the Organic Trade Association, and is a Certified Minority Business Enterprise. (

Windmoeller & Hoelscher is a leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of flexographic and gravure printing presses, blown and cast film extrusion systems, multiwall equipment, plastic sack and bag making machines, as well as form-fill-seal machinery for the converting and packaging industry.
