Glen Arm, Maryland based SUN Automation Group (SUN), an innovative solution provider to the global corrugated industry, announced that it has placed a Latitude Machinery Corporation (LMC) Jumbo Rotary Die Cutter (RDC) P-Series at Gerrity Corrugated Paper Products Ltd. in Concord, Ontario, Canada.
Gerrity chose the LMC Jumbo P-Series RDC because of its size, LMC’s reputation for quality and SUN Automation Group’s reputation for service and support.
“We needed to replace an older machine of similar size and the LMC Jumbo RDC fits perfectly into our bay and customer mix,” says Chris Maisonneuve, Operations Manager of Gerrity. “From delivery, to install and service, everything has gone well and we couldn’t be happier with our experience and the machine’s output.”
The machine is integrated with an AG Stacker, an Alliance prefeeder, and C & M conveyor. The machine was sold by Mikah Thorne, SUN Automation Group’s partner in Canada. SUN Automation Group will provide service, parts and technical support for the machine, as it does with all LMC equipment throughout Canada, the US, Mexico, and Central America.
LMC is a rapidly growing and world-class manufacturer of Rotary Die Cutters, Flexo Folder Gluers, and other solutions to the corrugated industry, with now 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 and supports 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, SUN Automation Group. “We are honored to work with LMC and provide sales, service and support to customers in the North American and Central American Market.”
