Two print images – two awards: Double success for SÜDPACK Grootegast at the EFTA-Benelux Flexo Awards 2023 where the company won gold in the category ‘Flexo print on foil / wide’. The team who attended the event also collected the Silver Award in the category ‘Flexo print on foil / medium’. The trophies were presented during a gala evening on November 9 in Antwerp, Belgium.

This year SÜDPACK has continued its series of award wins. After the Lean & Green Award, two German Packaging Awards, and places in the innovation and sustainability rankings of the economic journal WirtschaftsWoche, the company has now added two further important accolades to its list.

The EFTA Awards are awarded annually for outstanding solutions in flexo printing. A jury consisting of members with technical expertise, private label owners, and marketing experts judges the print images submitted anonymously in various categories. The two SÜDPACK solutions impressed the experts in particular with the overall accomplished workmanship manifested in consistent pressure points, excellent colour gradients, beautiful pastel colours in the design and last but not least clearly visible details.

Said Henk Edzes, Sales Manager and Jan Jitse Dalmolen, Manager PrePress at SÜDPACK Grootegast: “This success is an impressive confirmation that we belong to the best in the business.”

The facility in Grootegast dates from 1907 and was acquired by SÜDPACK in 2021. Today, SÜDPACK Grootegast is a Competence Centre for High Performance Laminates.  Its core competencies most notably include the development and production of printed and unprinted duplex and triplex laminated composites for packaging. Used in sophisticated applications, these solutions provide maximum product protection and a prolonged shelf life. SÜDPACK Grootegast supplies predominantly the packaging industry for foods, pharmaceuticals, and technical products. Its customer portfolio includes globally leading brands.

Now SÜDPACK Grootegast has its sights on the next challenge: The international FTA Europe Diamond Awards, which will be presented during the DRUPA on May 30, 2024 in Düsseldorf.

Added Jitse Dalmolen: “We will certainly enter and do our best to win. Considering our top expertise and state-of-the-art machinery, we feel pretty confident, and of course we’re highly motivated.”  For more visit suedpack.com
