During 2020, SupremeX (Montreal), a leading manufacturer of business envelopes, labels and packaging, relied heavily on its fully-automated UV-equipped 41”, 7-colour Koenig & Bauer Rapida 105 Pro B1 sheetfed offset press. Ideal for commercial work, packaging and label printing, the 105 features perfecting with up to 10 printing units, inline finishing such as double coating or numbering, perforating or corona units, an ErgoTronic console with comprehensive management functions, automatic non-stop systems with optional integration into pile logistics, and much more. As demand from Supremex customers involved in ecommerce packaging and specialty products accelerated during the pandemic, SupremeX saw a huge increase in demand for packaging materials to deliver these goods.
The company’s packaging and specialty products segment achieved greater efficiency with the new press as the pandemic continues to force retailers to utilize online sales. In fact, revenue from packaging and specialty products increased 10% as a result of growth in ecommerce packaging. Plus, per month production of N-flute cardboard for food and cosmetics customers increased 500% to 500,000. “Having our new Rapida 105 Pro gave us 40% extra efficiency and throughput, and helped us to deliver these orders,” said Islem Yezza, VP and GM at SupremeX Folding Carton. “We have increased our output exponentially each month with the new press.”
