To further strengthen its position as a global leader in offline finishing solutions, Rotoflex (St Louis, Missouri) recently moved its Canadian regional facility to a new, larger 12,000-square-foot building. Its previous address was 2420 Meadowpine Boulevard in Mississauga, Ontario. The company’s new address is 2660 Meadowvale Boulevard, Unit 14, in Mississauga, Ontario. The expanded capacity also adds a dedicated in-house showroom for live machine demonstrations, as well as a technology centre for increased on-site engineering development and service.

“It’s been an exciting year for Rotoflex,” said Kevin Gourlay, Vice President of Rotoflex. “We saw a 34% increase in sales, launched a trio of new products into the market (HSI, Vericut3 and Security Series), and grew our headcount in sales, engineering, technical support and aftermarket service. This new facility was a necessary expansion to provide more local resources to the team based in the Toronto area.

Another benefit the Rotoflex Canadian facility brings is tenure. We have sales and engineering employees that have been with Rotoflex for 10+, 20+ and 30+ years. This speaks volumes in expertise when advising customers on finishing solutions best suited for their production environment, and providing service and support to maximize efficiencies of older machines that continue to perform. Combined with the synergy of market leader Mark Andy, and a commitment to deliver business-responsive technology, Rotoflex continues to be a reputable and solid brand in the industry.”

“A key advantage we offer customers with existing Rotoflex machines is the option to retrofit or rebuild with our latest technology advancements,” said Manohar Dhugga, Rotoflex Director of Engineering and Service. “Our first rebuild has been completed in our new Toronto technology centre with great success, thanks to the extra capacity to accommodate machines, tooling and workspace resources utilized by our local engineering and service team.”

Rotoflex began in 1973 with the production of rotary tooling and later, converting equipment for the label printing industry. Today, the company is a world leader in inspection, slitting, rewinding and die-cutting equipment. From pioneering the first vertical inspection slitting and rewinding machine, the Rotoflex brand is now recognized globally as an industry standard, offering solutions for virtually any application in any market – from blank die-cutting to the most sophisticated security inspection requirements.
