Anro Places Order for First Highcon Euclid in the United States
YAVNE, ISRAEL—October 22, 2013—Highcon announced today that West Chester, PA-based Anro Inc. has placed an order for the Highcon Euclid digital cutting and creasing machine making it the first company in North America to be able to offer the benefits of digital package converting to its customers.
The Highcon Euclid will join Anro's digital printing line-up, allowing the company to offer its customers a one stop shop; faster speed to market, greater flexibility and shorter-run packaging.
The family-owned entity has been in business since 1953 and launched digital technology in 1998.
Chris Baker, Highcon vice president of sales and business development stated: "Anro is well known for product innovation and customer service. A proven early adopter, the company needed no introduction to the advantages of digital technology. The Highcon Euclid allows Anro to produce products and services that are unique to digital finishing, such as highly creative packaging and on-demand responsiveness, giving Anro a real competitive edge."
"As a full service printer we believe in making our customers' lives as easy as possible," added Jim Spinelli, Anro COO. "The Euclid will allow us to complete this service, extending their branding reach into short- and medium-run packaging and complementing the levels of quality, responsiveness and service that we strive to bring to all our clients. This addition to our digital supply chain will enhance our competitiveness in today's demanding market."
The Highcon Euclid is scheduled to be installed at Anro before the end of the year.
Founded in 2009 by Aviv Ratzman and Michael Zimmer, Highcon has developed a truly innovative Direct-to-Pack solution that will transform the existing folding carton market by increasing speed to market, eliminating costly production steps and reducing the carbon footprint of packaging production. Highcon launched Highcon Euclid, the world's first digital production converting machine, utilizing its patent-pending technology at the drupa exhibition May 2012.
