Contact Originators achieved a momentous hat trick by taking home three Gold prizes at the 2022 Flexographic Industry Association UK (FIAUK) Awards.
Following double Gold successes in the 2021 and 2020 ceremonies, Contact went one better in 2022 by scooping three Gold awards in front of over 400 leading figures from across the flexographic industry. The company won Repro Company of the Year and Supplier of the Year, both for the third year in a row, before winning the Technical Innovation Supplier Award.
The company was commended for another year of excellent customer service and the successful introduction of its innovative PrintHQ technology, an automated digital shim printing system for corrugated printers developed in collaboration with AV Flexologic. The system, which uses inkjet technology to apply individual print job information directly onto the plate shim at the point of mounting, facilitates easy plate identification, removes the need for labelling consumables, and eliminates human error from the process.
Steve Mulcahy, CEO, Contact Originators, said, “Everyone at Contact has worked tremendously hard over the last year and it is wonderful to see our team get the plaudits they deserve. We were delighted to be recognised with double Gold at the previous two FIAUK awards and to go one step further this year is tremendous. To take home a hat trick of Gold awards in three highly competitive categories is a testament to the skill and passion of every member of our team, which drives the business to continually improve. The fact we are not only maintaining these award-winning standards, but building on them every year through the introduction of innovations like PrintHQ, is only good news for our customers.”
