TOLLAND, CT | Gerber Innovations, a manufacturer of computer-controlled cutting systems for the packaging and graphics industries, has appointed The Haire Group of Merrillville, IN, as a distributor of the company’s GERBERcutter GT3000 system to corrugated packaging companies across North America.
Steve Gore, VP and general manager of Gerber’s Industrial Business, which includes Gerber Innovations, said, “By joining forces with The Haire Group, we can better serve our customers by providing more direct attention to their needs. The Haire Group has more than three decades of experience working with corrugated packaging manufacturers helping them automate their operations to improve productivity and profitability.”
Ken Andersen, new machinery product manager for The Haire Group, said, “We are proud to be able to complement our existing product portfolio with a cutting system designed and manufactured by Gerber, a company that revolutionized computer-controlled cutting more than 40 years ago. Our customers have come to rely on us to provide industry best practices that enable them to optimize their production with the use of automation systems. It’s our deep knowledge of corrugated packaging production that we enjoy sharing with our customers.”
Gore added, “The GERBERcutter GT3000 is ideal for those making samples and doing short production runs. Because it is affordably priced, highly productive, eliminates the need for expensive dies and is engineered for ease of use, it delivers an extremely fast return on investment.” The GT3000 cuts and creases all corrugated materials ranging in thickness from micro-flute to double wall. It is the newest addition to Gerber Innovations’ existing family of cutters that drill, rout and cut a wide variety of materials.
