SHEBOYGAN, WI — South African Paarl Print invested in a SHM 1450 SR sheeter from Pemco, a Wisconsin-based company within the Krber PaperLink Group, and is now running an “in-house” sheeting operation instead of buying pre-cut paper from the mills.
Company executives said with the SHM 1450, Paarl can realize significant cost savings. It is cheaper to buy rolls of paper and cut them in house than to buy sheeted paper from the paper mills like the company did in the past. This resulted in substantially lower storage costs for Paarl.
