Liverpool, 21 Jun 2023
• Triple-win for solutions in corrugated cardboard and flexible packaging, by Saica Pack Scotland, Saica Pack Newport and Saica Flex Buxton respectively, at the Annual Print Awards
Saica Group has scooped three awards at the prestigious Annual Print Awards, held by the UK Flexographic Industry Association (FIA UK).
Each year, FIA UK – which represents the entire flexographic printing supply chain - recognises excellence in printing and best practice in the field through the Annual Print Awards. This year, Saica Group attended the FIA UK Awards Gala Dinner, held on June 15th at the Hotel Titanic, Liverpool, where three of its packaging solutions were honoured.
The first of the Gold awards went to the SVS La Martiniquaise corrugated cardboard solution, developed by Saica Pack Scotland.
Saica Pack Newport received another Gold Award in the Corrugated Post Print – Uncoated line and screen category for its work with Champion.
The Saica Flex division has also been recognised once again, with a Bronze award for its UB McVities Mermaid Cake Bar 5pk print for Pladis.
These awards, which recognise best practice in flexographic printing in the UK, once again demonstrate the value that the Saica Group places on innovation and improvement in order to provide the best products and service to its customers.
Its investments in R&D&I, together with the work and effort of its employees to do something better and different every day, is what allows the Saica Group to remain at the forefront of packaging.
"We are delighted to have once again been recognised at an event as important as the FIA UK Awards Gala Dinner for our industry-leading work at both Saica Flex and Saica Pack.
These awards underline Saica Group's commitment to continuous improvement and innovation", commented Brian Lister, Country Manager UK & Ireland at Saica Pack.
“We're honoured to be recognised again by the FIA UK Awards”, added Lloyd Dicks, Sales Director at Saica Flex Buxton “These awards encourage us to continue to strive for excellence in both the quality of our work but also by pushing the boundaries in the production of sustainable packaging.”
The FIA works under the mission to support and inform the industry, through collaboration and representation of the stakeholders involved in the flexographic ecosystem, and with a vision to make flexographic printing the number 1 choice for all packaging and labelling partners.
