Happy New Year!

A new year means a brand-new list of New Year's resolutions! We wanted to share some of our goals (or resolutions) as a company this year:

Sustainability

Since we became members of the OSC2 group (One Step Close to an Organic Sustainable Community), we ramped up our sustainability initiatives and even created North America's first non-GMO, organic, compostable stand-up pouch as well as a compostable lidding film. This past year, we formed a Sustainable Packaging team, which meets bi-weekly and are dedicated to progressing our compostable and recyclable packaging solutions. With our President releasing our official stance on sustainability just a few weeks ago, and all of our advances in the last few years, we're more focused now than ever and are looking forward to dedicating more time and resources to sustainability. 

Equipment 

We're always looking to expand our fleet of equipment and, in turn, increase our capabilities for our customers. We've had some major additions between the HP 20000 Digital Press in 2018 and the SEI Laser Packmaster Cross Web and Packmaster Web Direction in 2019. With these additions, we're excited to be able to offer cutting edge digital printing capabilities for labels and flexible packaging and laser scoring, micro-perforation, and macro-perforation for flexible packaging. We're looking forward to continuing our streak over the next few years! 

Community

We're grateful to be partnered with so many amazing organizations such as One Girl Can, SHARE Society, and local sports teams such as Coquitlam Express Junior Hockey Club and Lacrosse All Stars. In 2020, we want to do more to give back to our community both as a company and as individuals, and our Social Committee is dedicated to making it happen! 

Resources

You may have noticed that over the past year we've been posting more on social media, writing blogs, and updating our website. As industry leaders, we want to be a resource for all of our customers, or anyone looking at our content, and we want to build on this for 2020. By the end of 2020, we aim to have plenty of helpful resources on our website and across social media for anyone looking for a label and/or packaging solution.

We're looking forward to the year ahead, and all of the exciting opportunities it'll bring!
