Improving North American economy and Shepherd’s move into the food market with SQF certification have prompted the company to purchase a new thermoforming line from the Italian machine manufacturer OMG. The high efficiency line will add the much needed production capacity made necessary by the increase in food packaging business that the company is currently experiencing.

The machine is expected to ship to Canada and be running food trays by late this summer. It will also open up machine time on other lines which will improve delivery to our repeat customers.
