Smurfit Kappa Wins 13 Awards At EFIA Event
Smurfit Kappa has won 13 awards at the recently held 2016 European Flexographic Industry Association Awards (EFIA), more than any other entrant.
The design and packaging company’s UK and Irish operations took home four Golds for their work with brands Jack Daniels, Huggies, Le Rouge and Standard Brands, as well as a number of Silver and Bronze awards.
Of the 13 awards, two were won by Smurfit Kappa inspirepac for the Huggies Baby Wipes Frozen Pack, which was created using the recently installed Bobst 924 Printer Folder Gluer machine.
Smurfit Kappa Chelmsford was awarded a Gold for its creation for Jack Daniels, which judges praised for its crisp and clean finish, while Smurfit Kappa CRP won Gold for its creation for Le Rouge.
Smurfit Kappa’s fourth Gold went to its Lurgan operation for the Standard Brands product.
Clive Bowers, CEO Smurfit Kappa UK, commented, “It is incredible to see how well our teams across the UK and in Ireland have done.
"We are so proud of all those involved and particularly of our inspirepac, Chelmsford, CRP and Lurgan operations on their Gold awards. Winning 13 prizes in one night demonstrates that year-on-year, we are impressing our customers with our print quality to drive sales and delivering on our promise to Open the future."
