Marvaco’s prepress unit in Ulvila, Finland, has moved its plate and DTP production to new and eco-efficient premises. With this change, the company intends to increase overall productivity, reduce its carbon footprint, improve occupational health and safety and making the working environment more pleasant.
According to the company, the relocation took place in May in a way that allowed the operations to continue with almost no interruptions. In these facilities, dust control and the reduction of diffuse emissions have been considered even better than before.
In addition, the new production facilities are in the city of Pori at a logistically sound location, which ensures excellent connections to other parts of Finland and quick 24-hour deliveries to Europe.
Currently, every company is seeking solutions that take them towards carbon-neutral production. Marvaco’s change of facilities is also based on the will to develop environmentally sustainable products and services. The key requirement for the new premises was that it reduces the company’s carbon footprint significantly. The goal can be achieved through energy-conserving building engineering and geothermal heating and cooling. In addition to these, the operations also use electricity from renewable sources.
At the same time, Marvaco is also investing heavily in new production technologies. During this year, the company invested in a new and eco-efficient flexo plate manufacturing technology, as well as screening technology to offer its clients high-quality and environmentally friendly printing.
‘As a company, we believe in success through cooperation with our clients and suppliers in the industry. Through our long-term investment program, we are continuing our development work as a pioneer of the printing industry and the leading packaging prepress partner in the Nordic region. Marvaco Group is currently operating in Finland, Sweden, and Germany,’ the company said in a statement.
