CHH's state of the art packaging technology

Date: 13 June 2001

Carter Holt Harvey implements state of the art packaging technology in Australia

Carter Holt Harvey today announced further investment in its Australian Packaging business with the installation of a Man Roland 900 printing press in its Carton Smithfield plant, Sydney. This is the only machine of its kind in Australasia.

The company will also acquire a Man Roland 700 for the Carton Reservoir plant, Melbourne, which will be installed in September this year.

Vanessa Stoddart, recently appointed Chief Executive for Carter Holt Harvey's Australian Packaging business, said the implementation of the Roland presses will allow the carton business to expand its service offering and production capacity enabling it to grow with its current Australian customers demand.

"Introducing the best technology available demonstrates our commitment to innovation and allows us to provide better service capability for our customers."

The Man Roland 900 handles medium- to long-run packaging with large-format applications. It prints at speeds up to 13,000 sheets per hour.

The investment builds on the company's established position in Australia, reaffirming its commitment to the packaging industry following the acquisition of Stone Containers in May 1999 and Riverwood Cartons in March 1998.
