MacDermid Graphics Solutions Breaks Ground on Second Photopolymer Plate Production Line

MacDermid Graphics Solutions, a global leader in flexographic platemaking and printing solutions, announces the groundbreaking of a new photopolymer plate production line at its manufacturing facility in Wigan, UK. The new line will double MacDermid’s current production capacity and will be the primary supply source for customers throughout Europe, Africa, The Middle East, Asia, and Australia.

The new 100-foot fully enclosed photopolymer plate production line will be a parallel operation to the company’s current production line in Morristown, TN, U.S. The line will reportedly feature state-of-the-art technology all integrated within a single control system. Additionally, energy-efficient features within the line will help to reduce MacDermid’s per unit greenhouse gas emissions.

“When I joined MacDermid Graphics Solutions in April 2020, we started the transformation to become the most customer-centric, innovative company in the package printing industry,” said Brad Wills, global senior vice president, MacDermid Graphics Solutions. “This new production line is a step forward in our transformation by answering the increased demand for our products and demonstrating our continued commitment to the industry.”

The new production line in Wigan is expected to come online in the second half of 2022.
