Kodak Highlights label and package printing innovations and key customer success stories at Labelexpo Americas 2014

Furthering its commitment to bring new innovations to package printing, Kodak rounded out Labelexpo 2014 by highlighting customer successes and a new collaborative effort with Packz Software. At the largest label show in the Americas, Sept. 9-11 in Rosemont, Illinois, Kodak presented the latest advances in its packaging portfolio including live demonstrations of the recently released Kodak Prinergy Workflow 6.1, explanations of how Kodak Stream Inkjet Technology is changing the landscape for high volume package customization, and the latest enhancements to the award-winning and industry leading Kodak Flexcel NX System.

Customers including G3 Enterprises and Label Print America were highlighted in the Kodak booth along with other global customers who openly shared their individual experiences with the Flexcel NX System, and the various business benefits they have been able to achieve since implementing Kodak’s technologies:

“To this day there are jobs that I would absolutely refuse to take if we did not have Kodak plates,” said James Stone, Technical Business Development Manager, G3 Enterprises, Inc. “We get outstanding results with no need for complex file manipulation. You just can’t say the same for the other technologies.”

“Kodak Flexcel NX Plates have given us the ability to serve our customers with consistent quality improvements, at a consistent price,” said Tony Yemma, President, Labelprint America. “Our business is about customer retention and is built around long-standing customer relationships, high quality and value. Kodak’s technology has allowed us to innovate, grow our customer base and continue to deliver value-added services.”

Packz Software also joined Kodak onsite to discuss the addition of Packz Professional PDF Editor to Kodak’s packaging workflow customers, enabling them to take advantage of more powerful tools and interactive editing. In addition to customer successes and newly announced offerings, attendees who stopped by Kodak’s booth had the opportunity to speak with several Kodak representatives, who provided additional information regarding Kodak’s continued commitment to packaging in areas that include offset, digital print solutions, functional printing, and security solutions for label and package printing.

“Label Expo was an excellent platform for showing attendees how our packaging solutions can help increase efficiencies and further automate digital capabilities,” said Dr. John Anderson, Kodak’s Sales and Marketing Packaging Manager for the U.S. & Canada Region. “The flexographic printing market is a dynamic one and is primed for major growth – Labelexpo 2014 was a great stage for us to communicate the value of not only the core Kodak Flexcel Systems and Plate offerings, but also our broader package printing portfolio including unified workflow, offset, digital and imprinting solutions.”
