For the second year running, speciality products group CRP Print & Packaging have once again clinched one of the top honours at the UK Packaging Awards, winning the coveted Investment Project of the Year category for their KBA Litho Press installation – the company won the UK Packaging Awards Design Team of the Year category in 2010.
In a glittering event at the London Hilton on Park Lane, on 16 November 2011, CRP impressed the judges with their “transformational” investment, in creating a one-of-a-kind production facility in Europe for producing high-quality corrugated litho packaging.
At £3.5m, not only was it KBA’s largest sheetfed printing installation in the UK for many years, it was CRP’s biggest investment yet, prompting one member of the judging panel to say, “This is a real game-changer for the company and for the market.”
This step change investment allows CRP’s customers to benefit from a combination of the very best manufacturing and printing capabilities, linked with exceptional customer service.
In what has been an excellent year for CRP on the awards circuit, winning a silver award at the European POPAI Awards in July, followed by more success at the UK POPAI Awards in October by collecting a silver and three bronze awards, their success at the UK Packaging Awards is especially poignant.
CRP’s Dev Brahmachari said, “The Awards are a key event, which not only includes a gathering of most of the industry’s important decision makers, but also representatives from some of the UK’s leading brands. Winning here for a consecutive year underpins our position as a market leader in the design and manufacture of high quality packaging for brand owners.
“The KBA installation has been a significant milestone in our history, and one of which we are justifiably proud. We are determined to stay ahead of the competition through investment in the most advanced printing technologies available, and with the KBA press we are doing just that.”
