modifications and Tufco has all of this capability in-house, shortening product concept to market lead
times and generally making life easier for its customers.
Tufco’s location in Green Bay, WI, where all of its
wipes converting operations are located, contains contract production of both wet and dry wipes in flat packs,
canisters and sachets, adhesive laminations and a specialty flexo printing department, along with a wide array
of integrated downstream packaging options.
Tufco’s most recent equipment expansion occurred
last fall with a new “state of the art” canister line,
believed to currently be the widest and most efficient
in North America. This was a key converting service
Tufco was missing in its portfolio of services and
enabled them to target some key wipes market opportunities they previously could not access.
Next up will be the Spring start-up and commercial
operation of an in-house micro lab allowing Tufco to
improve control and turnaround time for testing any
wipes that require a micro process. Beyond that,
Tufco will continue to evaluate the market direction
and emerging trends in wipes and packaging forms
and functions to determine what its next investment
will be. This could include new equipment purchases
and/or upgrading current equipment when new tech-
nologies are introduced which offer different and
improved wipes formats and operating advantages,
said Ms. Cherney.

consumer safety the addition of preservatives is necessary. With a wide variety of easy-handling liquid blends to choose
from, there is a schülke product to meet almost any preservation need.
