MarquipWardUnited is celebrating the installation of its 300th dual rotary sheeter knife. In the 25 years that they have been manufacturing sheeters, MarquipWardUnited has installed dual rotary knives around the globe in paper mills, converters, folding carton plants and commercial printers.
In 1987, Marquip, LLC, entered the sheeting industry using knowledge gained through the development of splicers and knives for the corrugating and custom products industries. In 2008 MarquipWardUnited took another big step when they acquired Apollo Sheeters, to create the most versatile sheeter supplier world-wide. With the combination of two great companies MarquipWardUnited continued to innovate by bringing the dual rotary knife to more customers through a broader product offering and higher production speeds on all paper types. MarquipWardUnited aims to provide customers with a competitive edge through products that have a reputation for being efficient and reliable.
The 300th dual rotary knife was installed on a TSKM sheeter sold to a folding carton plant in France. The success of the MarquipWardUnited dual rotary knife demonstrates MarquipWardUnited's commitment to creating superior solutions through inspired innovation.
