WestRock Company acquires Linkx Packaging Systems, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
Linkx specializes in automated packaging machinery ranging from single-order dispatch systems to fully integrated automation. Its BoxSizer™ technology platform can right-size multiple sizes of cartons on the same machine without stopping for changeovers.
BoxSizer complements WestRock’s existing automated packaging systems portfolio, including its Box on Demand®solution. Where Box on Demand creates custom-sized boxes, BoxSizer reduces the height dimension of multiple-sized boxes with no changeover to reduce empty space, void fill, materials, labor and shipping costs. By removing excess packaging material, BoxSizer and WestRock’s other right-size technology solutions help customers reduce their shipping, warehousing and environmental costs.
