Taylor Prime Labels & Packaging has installed an HP Indigo 25K digital press to meet growing demand for flexible packaging.
Taylor is a US-based graphic communications company, headquartered in North Mankato, Minnesota with a footprint spanning 25 states and eight countries. Taylor Prime Labels & Packaging has five plants in California, Georgia and Minnesota that provide short, medium and long run production of a wide range of labelling and packaging options. A Mark Andy Performance Series P7 flexo press was added earlier this year to support such production.
The investment in digital by Taylor Prime Labels & Packaging provides the business with a press equipped to produce sustainable packaging options that comply with EU and FDA regulations for the consumer packaged goods market. These include pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) and roll-fed labels, shrink sleeves and flexible packaging. The press also allows Taylor to create packaging that features unique designs, variable data and ‘perfect’ colour registration in a single pass. In addition to no minimum order quantity or maximum run length, the company noted that its customers also stand to benefit from HP’s liquid electrophotography (LEP) technology supporting UV printing and reducing the environmental impact of printing by 40-60% compared to flexo and 60-80% compared to gravure.
Randy Scott, general manager of the Taylor Prime Labels & Packaging plant in North Mankato, said, ‘With this investment, we’re making it easy for customers to create packaging and labels for their eco-friendly brands and do something positive for the environment.
‘Digital production means shorter runs and faster speed to market, which allows our customers to run seasonal promotions, react quickly to market opportunities and offer more personalised experiences.’
