Flexo Sustainable : Fall 2014
Aiming For Sustainability Target Labels & Packaging Thinks Green I mplementing a sus- tainability initiative typically costs time, money and effort—so why bother? “We all need to be on the same page and focus on new and innovative ways to make a difference,” says Josh- ua Jenks, president and general manager at North Salt Lake, UT Target Labels & Packaging. “We all need to make sure we are doing our part.” Here, Jenks shares his thoughts on being a sustainable printer, why consumers care about being green and his company’s processes that enable it to minimize waste. FLEXO®: What does sustainability mean to Target Labels & Packaging? Jenks: We have a focus on sustainability. We try to do our part by keeping our waste down. One of the big reasons we recently added a Uteco press was to decrease waste. By updating all of our equipment, we have cut our setup waste by around 30 percent. FLEXO®: Talk about the recent purchases and any other upgrades or developments Target Labels & Packaging has made lately. Jenks: Over the past year, we have updated all of our flexible packag- ing technology to include state of the art equipment. This includes: • Uteco printing press • High speed wicketer • High speed slitter • Flat bed bag machine • Pouch machine We are also ISO 9001:2008 certified and we received a Superior AIB rating.
