S-One Holdings Corporation has launched S-One Labels & Packaging (S-OneLP), a new division focused on providing products, service, technical know-how and integrated products to digital printers in the labels and flexible packaging market.
Through its LexJet and Utopia Digital Technologies divisions, S-One explained that it has developed a deep partnership with Michelman to serve the HP Indigo customer base with best-in-class primers for the past 12 years. S-One has recently signed agreements with flexible packaging specialists Toray America and Protect-all to create a comprehensive portfolio of packaging products designed to help label printing customers transition seamlessly into digital flexible packaging printing.
HP Indigo printers who currently purchase in-line, off-line and custom primers from S-One’s company, LexJet, will work with the S-OneLP team, effective March 1. Customers will have access to these products as well as a growing portfolio of specialty over-print varnishes and flexible packaging films, laminates, adhesives, paper-based substrates and more.
Ralph Giammarco, S-OneLP vice president, said: ‘Staying closely in tune with this market, we’ve discovered that our customers are looking for not only the best-performing products with lower minimums and improved lead times, but they are also searching for unwavering support and vital education as they expand into digital flexible packaging printing, which has seen exploding growth in the past year.
‘With S-OneLP, we’ve paired our exceptional primers sales team with product experts, market development specialists and the flex-pack industry’s top minds to lead this market forward.’
Giammarco added: ‘There are so many opportunities for HP Indigo print providers now, and with S-OneLP, we look forward to helping them master the world of digital label and flexible package printing.’
