Significant investment enhances production efficiency and quality with inline sustainable featuresJones Healthcare Group Boosts Production Capabilities with Advanced Koenig & Bauer Litho Press Acquisition

Ron Harris, President & CEO of Jones Healthcare Group, proudly announces the company's latest stride forward: a substantial investment in a state-of-the-art Koenig & Bauer Rapida seven-colour litho press.

Jones Healthcare Group, a market leader in advanced packaging and medication dispensing solutions, has announced the acquisition of a state-of-the-art, seven-color Koenig & Bauer high-speed litho press, the most recognized high-performance packaging press on the market. This move, part of Jones’ continued investment in business innovation, is set to substantially increase its current production capacity, flexibility, and efficiency.

Responding to an unprecedented increase in carton volumes over the past year, and a corporately embedded focus on continuous improvement, the new press will further enhance the company’s commitment to providing exceptional customer service in the market and will be operational by July of this year. This investment provides a dual purpose: it will contribute to maintaining the utmost level of quality while also fully aligning with the organization’s growth strategy.

“This marks our second investment in a litho press from Koenig & Bauer within the past four years,” said Ron Harris, President & CEO of Jones Healthcare Group. "We've been highly satisfied with the performance and additional capabilities offered by our previous investment. By adding another Koenig & Bauer press to our lineup, we not only expand our capacity but also enhance our ability to adapt to the diverse needs of our customers."

The Koenig & Bauer high-speed press, notable for its advanced features like inline register and color control, including complete reporting analysis of all job parameters, will bolster Jones’ commitment to exceeding customer expectations with reduced lead times. This latest equipment acquisition coincides with the recent investments to enhance its finishing capabilities, and the U.S. compliance card sector.

“Jones Healthcare Group and Koenig & Bauer have a long-standing relationship that includes future  R & D developments so that Jones always has the latest technology. For many years, we’ve had a special partnership with Jones that includes several strategic initiatives so that they remain the leading producer of folding cartons in the industry,” says Ralf Sammeck, CEO of Koenig & Bauer Sheetfed. “At Koenig & Bauer, we deeply value our partnership with Jones and congratulate them on this latest investment.”

Jones invested in ground-breaking features to further enhance its operations and service and to develop unique customer driven solutions. The new Koenig & Bauer Rapida 106 seven-color has integrated simultaneous processes to ensure non-stop operation of the press with greatly reduced waste, in line with Jones’ sustainability goals. This includes custom capabilities to analyze all press parameters in real time, such as aligning the printed product with the customer-approved PDF.

Paramount to Jones is to have all investments reviewed against their publicly stated sustainability goals and this investment reaffirmsthat commitment with a reduction of energy consumption, minimizing waste, and enhancing overall efficiency.
