Smart Packaging Solutions launches high-end offset printing press

VPK’s division for solid board packaging, Smart Packaging Solutions, has invested in a new offset printing press of the highest quality. The Heidelberg XL 162 is among the manufacturer’s top-of-the-range products and offers remarkable printing quality.

The new offset printing press was successfully launched at the Meer site last month.  This is excellent news for customers who require high-quality printing. The Heidelberg XL 162 is among the absolute best in its class in offset printing. It features outstanding printing quality in five colors plus coating, in large format and with an exceptional maximum speed of 15,000 pieces per hour. In addition, the machine increases productivity thanks to its ultra-short switching times. The investment sum totals EUR 3 million.

Local and international growth for Smart Packaging Solutions

Earlier this year, Smart Packaging Solutions announced international growth through its acquisition of SolidPack in Loenen. Smart Packaging Solutions is now able to supply top-quality solid board packaging from three sites, together able to produce 150,000 tons of packaging. The newest site in the division has already been entirely rebranded. See the most recent images from Loenen above.

Additional investments are planned later this year: in June, a Bobst Masterfold will be delivered in Loenen; three months later the installation of a new Bobst flatbed die cutter will take place in Meer. To illustrate the dynamics of our solid board department, we launched a new brand video. Get to know some of the faces behind the brand!
