Pack Expo 2011

Pack Expo 2011

It’s an exciting day here at York Saw & Knife.

For one, PACK EXPO 2011 opens today, and all signs point to a record-breaking year for the world’s premier packaging industry trade show. We’ll be showing off our best machine knife examples and providing some on-the-spot consultation in Booth S4922 – be sure to stop in and say “Hi!” if you’re at the show.

The second part, which is great whether or not you make it to PACK EXPO this year, might already be apparent if you’ve visited the site before: we’ve just relaunched the website.

The new site features a freshly re-organized, updated look that hopes to spotlight all the brands YSK offers while still offering the in-depth information about our machine blade products most visitors have come to expect. You can browse products, review applications & industries served, as well as learn more about YSK company history & blade engineering capabilities. You might even take some time to learn more about all three YSK brands:
