ePac Flexible Packaging has purchased 10 additional HP Indigo 20000 digital printing presses to supporting its expanding converting operations throughout the United States. The new order quadruples production capacity for ePac and is the largest packaging deal for HP to date.
The purchase is ePac’s second expansion with the high-capacity HP Indigo 20000 flexible packaging press since launching just 18 months ago with one Indigo unit. ePac currently uses three HP Indigo 20000 digital presses in Madison, Wisconsin, and Boulder, Colorado, and the 10 new units will be deployed coast-to-coast in new facilities scheduled to open in Los Angeles, Houston, Chicago, and Miami.
“ePac helps simplify how brands of all sizes buy flexible packaging. Rapid turnaround time, low minimums, customization, graphics quality and the ability to print to demand differentiate ePac from conventional flex pack converters,” says Jack Knott, CEO, ePac Flexible Packaging. “Printing is the core enabling technology we have built ePac on, with the HP Indigo 20000 serving as the foundation of our manufacturing platform. ePac’s collaboration with HP is fundamental to our growth strategy, as we look to adding ePac sites in the months ahead.”
The HP Indigo 20000 Digital Press provides converters the freedom to produce nearly any flexible packaging application, in addition to labels and shrink sleeves on film or paper – all with the proven quality to help meet strict brand requirements.
“HP Indigo digital printing technology means greater flexibility for brands and entrepreneurs, and a more meaningful connection for their consumers,” says Santi Morera, global head of Graphics Solutions Business, HP Inc. “HP is thrilled to play an integral role in ePac’s rapid rise to success over the past two years – and with today’s purchase, it’s a relationship we support proudly in the months and years to come.”
