Spearhead’s Autocartoner Investment Accelerates

Our New High Speed Autocartoner is Set to Revolutionize the Market

In 2020, The Spearhead Group made the bold decision to invest in a high speed AFA Systems Autocartoner at their Kentucky Flagship location within the office of Spearhead PioneerAcuity Packaging & Logistics. Since this investment, Spearhead has supported more end-to-end inquiries for projects. The reason is simple, most clients want to see an end-to-end, holistic solution to their packaging needs. This means design and development of cartons, not only to fit their brand and sustainability goals, but also to address operating efficiencies all the way through to the final co-packing.

Gone are the days of purchasing value added packs (VAPs) from multiple sources and awkward coordination with separate co-packing sites. In the past, co-packing sites rarely viewed VAP planning details until materials landed at their facility, creating a scramble to figure out the most effective assembly solution. Through our Spearhead end-to-end solution, clients can consolidate every part of the process with multiple partners to design efficiencies from the first creative process to final assembly. Our autocartoner builds to specification to ensure high speed, lower-cost assembly, all with just one-point of contact for our clients.“Our autocartoner program has been a great resource for client inquiry and collaboration and makes great business sense,” said Robert Catalano, Chief Innovation Officer and Co-Founder of The Spearhead Group. “Programs like VAPs pose systemic challenges on time, bandwidth, and budgets. High speed autocartoning allows us to address integrated brand goals every step of the way, creating efficiency and sustainability. Our autocartoner is just the latest example of how we strive to enhance client solutions and find new ways to revolutionize the marketplace.”If you want to learn more about how your next program can benefit from our Autocartoner solution, please reach out to Pamela Wyatt Ashcraft.
