YL Goes West!
Yerecic Label is thrilled to announce the opening of a second facility in Phoenix, Arizona! Built in 2021, this brand new state of the art facility is approximately 40,000 sq. ft., and provides 1 & 2 day transit times to California, Arizona, Idaho and Washington.
Within the facility there are plans and connections for five total presses, two of which are currently connected and running. The third press is in-house, with plans to staff by the end of 2022. These Mark Andy presses range from 10” to 17” and have 12 color capabilities. They are also equipped with ABG and KTI turrets, as well as Rotoflex rewinders and ABG Fleye Vision Inspection. The intentional duality between YL1 and YL2 presses have shortened team members’ learning curve to achieve quick operational efficiency.
YL2 Facility Ancillary Equipment
The Arizona facility will function the same as Pittsburgh, with all equipment needed in house to print award-winning labels. This includes a full DuPont Cyrel plateroom with ESKO imager, a GSI ink mixing system, an ABG rewind table with automation, as well as Flexo Wash anilox cleaners, plate cleaners and parts washer. This facility also features significant racking space for raw stock and finished goods.
To begin the staffing journey for YL2, a group of YL1 team members relocated to Phoenix. They have done a tremendous job getting the facility ready for full-capacity! In addition, we hired local team members to staff two shifts with plans to transition to three shifts in June 2022. Having YL1 team members lead the charge in Phoenix allows the Yerecic Label culture of Continuous Improvement to be a key part of the new facility.
