Jackson Paper Manufacturing Co is expanding operations with the launch of digital printing services on the industrial-grade HP PageWide C500 digital press, as it expands its sustainable corrugated range of products.
The new HP PageWide C500 press will operate at Sustainable Printing, a new Jackson Paper digital printing arm, located in Georgia, where the unit will be installed this summer. Headquartered in North Carolina, Jackson produces and supplies 100% recyclable corrugated medium to corrugated box makers throughout the United States via Jackson Corrugated and Sustainable Corrugated Company.
Sustainable Printing will operate as a wholesale trade printer for on-demand digital printing of litho quality corrugated boxes for its sheet customers to benefit from fast turnaround and variable sized orders. The new HP PageWide C500 press will enable Jackson Papers to tap into the growing high-graphics packaging market for e-commerce, shelf-ready and food and pharma applications.
“The purchase of the HP PageWide C500 expands our sustainability offering to our customers and market with high quality, more sustainable digital printing. As a corrugated board expert and supplier for the graphics printing industry, adding on services for graphic printed boards will uniquely position Sustainable Printing to deliver an exceptionally high-quality product along with breakthrough time to market,” said Thomas Barker, Executive Vice President.
