After the Lean & Green Award, two German Packaging Awards, and places in the innovation and sustainability rankings of the economic journal WirtschaftsWoche, the company has now added two further accolades to its list. 

The EFTA Awards are awarded annually for solutions in flexo printing. A jury consisting of members with technical expertise, private label owners, and marketing experts, judges the print images submitted anonymously in various categories. The two Südpack solutions impressed the experts with consistent pressure points, colour gradients, pastel colours in the design, and clearly visible details.

Henk Edzes, sales manager, and Jan Jitse Dalmolen, manager pre-press, Südpack Grootegast, attended the presentation event. “This success is an impressive confirmation that we belong to the best in the business,” said Henk Edzes.

The facility in Grootegast dates from 1907 and was acquired by Südpack in 2021. Today, Südpack Grootegast is a competence centre for high performance laminates.  Its competencies include the development and production of printed and unprinted duplex and triplex laminated composites for packaging. These solutions provide product protection and a prolonged shelf life.

Südpack Grootegast supplies predominantly the packaging industry for foods, pharmaceuticals, and technical products. Now Südpack Grootegast has its sights on the next challenge: The international FTA Europe Diamond Awards, which will be presented during the Drupa on 30 May, 2024 in Düsseldorf. “We will enter and do our best to win. Considering our top expertise and state-of-the-art machinery, we feel pretty confident, and we’re highly motivated,” said Jan Jitse Dalmolen.
