HP Inc. announced that ePac LLC, an Emerald Packaging joint venture based in Madison, Wisconsin, has agreed to purchase three additional HP Indigo 20000 Digital Presses to enhance capacity in line with demand and expand operations in North America. The company is also leveraging a next-generation end-to-end digital workflow platform to streamline production and offer a highly automated customer experience.
“Built on a value proposition of high quality, quick turn-around and economical short runs, the market response to ePac has been tremendous,” said Virag Patel, COO, ePac. “Since we first announced ePac in February of this year, we’ve seen a growing stream of interest in ePac. Aside from our short-run, quick-turn capability, the fact that we are a full-service supplier providing design, pre-media, digital printing, laminating and pouch making services also resonates with our customers.”
Expanding on the company’s fast-to-market business model, the HP Indigo 20000 Digital Press offers proven quality to meet strict brand requirements, print-on-demand and variable data for unique, customized packaging content for consumer packaged goods companies (CPGs). The HP Indigo 20000, combined with HP PrintOS and ePac’s down-stream finishing systems, enables ePac to produce high-quality multi-format pouches and laminated roll stock.
“With our entire business engineered around a digital platform, ePac is responding to CPG market needs and developing market-specific packaging on demand with HP Indigo 20000 Digital Presses,” said Jack Knott, CEO, ePac. “With HP Indigo technology and support as our digital ally, we’re confident in delivering the highest quality products to our rapidly growing customer base.”
