W+D as a part of the BW Converting Solutions platform


A giant step on the road to the future

As we announced in the spring, we will move forward working hand in hand with our valued partners Paper Converting Machine Company (PCMC), STAX Technologies, Hudson-Sharp and Northern Engraving and Machine Company (NEMCO) all under the umbrella of Barry-Wehmiller Converting Solutions (BWCS). Working together, we can offer the perfect solution for all your individual needs in the areas “Tissue,” “Print, Bag & Mail,” and “Hygiene.”

Direct strategic exchange between these leading brands now opens up even more benefits for you:

Best performance / We create the best possible manufacturing conditions—and maximum profitability—for you with innovative and powerful production lines as well as fast and highly efficient service.

All-in-one process / Our experts from various product divisions bring many synergies to the table through their collaboration, promoting development of forward-looking,individualized solutions. For example, we recently developed two products—“Green Manta” and “To-Go Ministack”— sustainable packages for hygiene products, made possible by combining technologies from the tissue and mail sectors.

Quality services / More than 150 service technicians worldwide are now at your disposal as part of the corporate partnership to assist you in optimizing your operations. Spare parts availability will also be further expanded and accelerated in the future through our partners’ supplementary locations.
