After comprehensive market research, Essentra Packaging chose a Digital Series HD manufactured by Mark Andy,” the business said in a statement. 


Owing to its latest purchase, Essentra has reduced the time for sample printing and material usage for versioned work by up to 80%. It has also significantly reduced processing waste and with job proofing more streamlined, has made production more cost effective,” Mark Andy said.


The Lublin-based production facility supplies its output mainly to customers from the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries, making printed carton packaging using sheet fed offset presses, as well as labels.
