OEM Technical Accounts Manager Paul Teachout, of Harper Corporation, asserts that the new partnership between Harper and PCMC is something about which his company is extremely excited. He notes: "This new inline platform will provide a great opportunity for the growing segment of mid web packaging and allows all wide web and narrow web converters to take full advantage of the technology."
