I am sadly going to decommission one of your manufactured equipment, the Wolverine Hydro Serial n. 344. It has been a very solid, robust, reliable press for many years for my company and previous ones; lots and lots of Km of printed film.
Just a thank you note to the Wolverine Flexographic Mfg. Co. Keep up with the good work.
We appreciate the note and wish Torkan many more years of success!
Our oldest press — still in use — was built in 1953. We often refurbish presses and equipment, finding new owners that will benefit from the durability of Wolverine Presses.
