BW Papersystems acquires QUESTEC technology

BW Papersystems has acquired the QUESTEC technology, an innovative rotary crosscutting technology.

the acquisition adds technology for the converting of lightweight materials

BW Papersystems, part of Barry-Wehmiller and a leading manufacturer for the corrugating, sheeting and paper-converting industries, has acquired the QUESTEC technology from Ph-QUESTEC, based in Germany. Adding this specialized, innovative rotary crosscutting technology—which serves the printing industry, and has special lightweight paper and film applications—will perfectly complement BW Papersystems’ already robust sheeting and paper-converting product and technology offerings. The transaction, Barry-Wehmiller’s 106th acquisition, became final June 2, 2018.

The talented team members associated with the QUESTEC technology will find a new home as part of BW Papersystems’ operations in Germany, contributing and sharing their valuable knowledge with the global team.

"We are excited about integrating the QUESTEC technology into our sheeting product line," said Patrick Walczak, BW Papersystems Senior Vice President Sales, White and Blue Paper. "Not only does it provide opportunities to enhance our offerings for inline reel-fed printing, but it also helps us serve new markets, such as plastic film-cutting, cut-to-register applications for labels and other single-web specialty products."

The unique QUESTEC technology successfully handles and cuts very thin web-based paper and film grades. For the inline-printing industry, as well as the specialized plastic-film industry, both the standalone and integrated QUESTEC crosscutting and contact-free sheet transport solutions provide precise, versatile production options.

"Our BW Papersystems product portfolio continues to get broader and more diverse," said Neal McConnellogue, President of BW Papersystems. "But, I am even more grateful for the addition of the knowledge, talent and legacy of our new QUESTEC team members."

Added Bob Chapman, Barry-Wehmiller Chairman and CEO: "I am excited to welcome our new team members and share our people-centric culture with them, as we continue to enhance and grow BW Papersystems’ offerings."
