HP Inc. and ePac Flexible Packaging announced that ePac hit a new production record at the start of 2020 on its fleet of HP Indigo 20000 digital presses operating globally, driven by a doubling of its customer base in the past year.
ePac expanded to Asia in December last year after it established ePac Holdings Asia Pacific. The manufacturing site is expected to open in Indonesia in mid-2020.
With locations in North America, Europe and Asia, ePac is currently serving more than 6000 customers, primarily small and medium-sized businesses.
In January 2020, production reached a new record of over 20 million B1 impressions at 10 sites where ePac is currently operating HP Indigo presses. Compared to January of last year, volume has tripled.
“Our customers have discovered the advantages of locally sourced, fast turnaround packaging as a means to drive market expansion of their brand. A high percentage of orders today are coming from returning customers,” said Carl Joachim, ePac CMO.
By the end of 2020, ePac is set to roll out a total of 52 HP Indigo 20000 presses globally.
“ePac is leading the digital flexible packaging movement worldwide, as it successfully replicates its HP Indigo digital printing-based business model in new locations. This expansion provides new opportunities for brands and end users benefit from digital printing advantages, including fast turnaround, no minimum order quantities, low waste and unlimited variable data for targeting, customization and personalization,” said Alon Bar-Shany, general manager, HP Indigo.
