We’ve spent more than a decade developing a production model that meets our customers’ high expectations. Our model utilizes sustainable packaging materials, techniques and processes whenever possible.
We regularly advise customers on ways to reduce waste and save costs on their packaging. Whether that’s switching to a new material, downgauging (thinning the label material), or running combo jobs, all can save cost while meeting sustainability goals.
We employ these practices and others internally to reduce the use of resources and save cost:
- Recycle heat exhausted from our presses to heat our facilities
- Use a closed loop water system to reduce the need for compressed air
- Employ a water-based gravure ink system and soy based offset ink system, which is healthier for our employees, and greatly reduces the use of petroleum-based chemicals
We make it a point to partner with other companies who place a high importance on reducing their carbon footprint as well. We are founding members of two sustainability groups:
- The Sustainability Institute: a regional consortium which provides leadership and education on sustainability for businesses
