The print and paper advocacy group, Two Sides, are excited to announce its newest member, Highcon Systems Ltd, the developer of digital cutting and creasing solutions for post-print processes in the folding carton and corrugated carton industry.
“Highcon are delighted to become a member of Two Sides. We want to serve the world by making paperboard packaging and display more agile, sustainable and engaging. We look forward to promoting the sustainable story of paper-based packaging and displays by enhancing our own sustainability story even further.” says Simon Lewis, VP Marketing for Highcon.
Highcon develops, markets, sells and supports a portfolio of digital converting machines for folding carton and corrugated converters that cover a wide range of formats, substrates and applications.
Simon continues, “At Highcon, our mission is to accelerate the adoption and usage of our digital finishing solutions to empower efficiency and innovation, effectiveness and sustainability for both converters and brands.”
Consumers, businesses, and organisations are all becoming increasingly conscious of the environmental impacts of the products and materials they use and consume. By eliminating the wood, metal, rubber of a physical die, the transport & storage, Highcon reduces the number of mechanical die sets required by the industry, while the Highcon non-crush process maintains the integrity of the box enabling light-weighting and facilitating rightsizing of the pack. In addition, Highcon’s digital solutions enable ganging of multiple jobs on the same digital die, enabling production on demand, lower MOQs and reducing waste. “Our partnership with Highcon will help us share the great sustainable story that paper-based packaging and displays have to tell, to a sector that must be informed about the environmental merits of print and paper products. Welcoming new members on board is always a pleasure and we look forward to working with Highcon,” says Jonathan Tame, Managing Director of Two Sides UK.
By joining Two Sides, Highcon has access to a large library of co-brandable communications tools, consumer research, industry-leading information, sustainability advice, and events.
