Gerrity Corrugated Paper Products (Concord, Ontario) has invested in a new LMC (Latitude Machinery Corporation) P-Series Jumbo Rotary Die Cutter (RDC) from the Sun Automation Group (Glen Arm, Maryland), a leader in providing innovative solutions to the global corrugated industry. Gerrity chose the LMC Jumbo P-Series RDC because of its size, LMC’s reputation for quality, and the Sun Automation Group’s reputation for exceptional service and support. “We needed to replace an older machine of similar size and the LMC Jumbo RDC fit perfectly into our bay and customer mix,” said Chris Maisonneuve, Operations Manager at Gerrity. “From delivery, to installation and service, everything has gone well and we couldn’t be happier with our experience and the machine’s output.”
Gerrity Corrugated Paper Products was established in 1977 as Gerrity Sheet Plant Supply – a place where sheet plants could get small-volume runs at with quick turnarounds. When this market proved to be too small, Gerrity successfully transitioned into corrugated carton manufacturing. Continually growing in both size and product lines, Gerrity has now become a leader in brown box, POP displays and Just-In-Time/Kanban delivery systems.
Gerrity’s new die cutter is integrated with an AG Stacker, an Alliance pre-feeder, and C&M conveyor, and was sold by Mikah Thorne, Sun Automation Group’s partner in Canada. Sun Automation Group will provide service, parts and technical support, as it does with all LMC equipment throughout Canada, the U.S., Mexico, and Central America. LMC is a rapidly growing, world-class manufacturer of rotary die cutters, flexo folder gluers, and other solutions to the corrugated industry. It has over 100 machines in the field across North America. Sun entered into an exclusive strategic partnership agreement with LMC in 2019, and since then has been the exclusive North and Central America representative of all LMC machinery, supporting its current customers with parts and service. “Gerrity is an excellent partner and we are confident in the success of the LMC Jumbo for their needs,” said Greg Jones, Executive Vice President at Sun Automation Group. “We are honoured to work with LMC and provide sales, service and support to customers in the North American and Central American Market.”
