SUN Automation Group announces partnership with Corrugated Solutions

SUN Automation Group, a leading global provider of innovative equipment to the corrugated industry, is pleased to announce a partnership with Corrugated Solutions to represent the company and support its customers in the Mid-West region of the United States.

Corrugated Solutions is comprised of three packaging industry veterans with a combined experience of over 50 years.  At the helm of Corrugated Solutions leadership is father and son team Michael Klear and Raymond Klear.  Both executives bring to SUN a variety of special skill sets and unique experiences that will benefit its growing customer base around the Mid-West.

“Providing our customers with the best and most advanced solutions is a top priority,“ says Greg Jones, Vice President of Global Sales and Aftermarket for SUN Automation Group.  “Corrugated Solutions’ team has the experience, the technical knowledge and the skills to support our customers in the Mid-West and help them identify additional ways to streamline and improve operations.”

Formally with ITW and Signode Industrial Group, Michael Klear brings product development, sales, marketing and customer service experience to the team.  Having supported box plants for years at both ITW and Signode, he understands the modern challenges of the corrugated industry and the customers SUN serves.

Most recently at Dow Chemical as Sales Director of Plastics, North America, Raymond Klear brings many years of sales and marketing experience, including extensive experience in the pulp and paper industry.  A proven leader and problem-solver, Mr. Klear is eager to apply his expertise and years of experience in supporting SUN and its customers.

“Corrugated Solutions is committed to helping customers find the right solutions for their individual plant from end of the line packaging all the way up to production equipment,” says Michael Klear, Partner at Corrugated Solutions. “It was SUN’s customer-centric approach and commitment to quality and service that really set the company apart from other suppliers.  We realized the culture at SUN fits perfectly with our own and we are thrilled to be able to bring the innovative solutions SUN provides to our customers.”

Corrugated Solutions will now be SUN Automation Group’s exclusive representative in the Midwest. The company will cover MN/WI/IA/IL/IN/MI/MO for SUN. With the advantage of being able to cover seven states with three people instead of one, SUN believes its customers in the Mid-West will benefit tremendously from the customer service Corrugated Solutions can provide.

“We have a tremendous team at SUN Automation that enables us to meet our commitment to delivering stellar service and support for our customers around the world,” says Jones. “Corrugated Solutions exemplifies that commitment and we are thrilled to have them on our team.”
