Curtis Packaging has invested in the first Scodix Ultra 6000 Press powered by SHD, launched at Printing United this month.
As the trends for shorter runs and increased versioning of products continue, the Scodix Ultra 6000 powered by SHD will allow Curtis to keep up with demanding turnaround times, whilst the number and quality of embellishments will satisfy many customers’ needs.
Don Droppo Jr., President and CEO, Curtis Packaging, said, “Between the versatility of ten different applications, and the variable data capabilities of the Scodix press, we will be able to capture a larger portion of the market with our increased capacity and capabilities. We are also excited to offer our customers new and special treatments for their existing and upcoming product lines. We feel that these new capabilities will help us take our customers to the next level in terms of the visual impact of their products, but also get the job done cost effectively.”
He continues, “Scodix technology differentiates itself from traditional stamping and embossing, as there are no die costs. Aside from saving dollars, each and every run could be customized with its own unique, complementary feel. It’s imperative for strong brands to jump out on the shelves in the ultra-competitive markets of cosmetics, chocolates and spirits that we operate in. And we see many brands achieving that extra impact with customization and personalization, the demand for which, continues to grow.”
With a long-time emphasis on sustainable practices both in production and material sourcing, Curtis Packaging has been a steward of innovation, quality, and environmental responsibility for decades and continues to seek new ways to be a leader in folding cartons. As one of the first packaging companies in North America to use 100% renewable energy, to be 100% carbon neutral and to be a zero waste to landfill facility, Curtis Packaging holds itself to a higher standard. With no plates, dies, chemicals or solvents, Scodix meets the high environmental standards imposed by Curtis Packaging. “In short, Scodix scores massive sustainability points at Curtis when analyzing our corporate footprint,” adds Droppo Jr.
Mark Nixon, VP Global Sales & Marketing, Scodix, concludes, “Having Curtis using Scodix embellishment on the packaging of such iconic brands is a testament to the value Scodix brings to the packaging industry. Scodix also provides Curtis with the ability to improve its sustainability pitch, which further cements their relationship with leading brands.”
