United Carton Industries Company Invests in Digital with EFI NozomiJanuary 2, 2020
United Carton Industries Company, a leader in Saudi Arabia’s packaging industry, is achieving a breakthrough advancement in digital print for corrugated packaging with the installation of an EFI Nozomi C18000 six-color, single-pass LED inkjet printer from Electronics For Imaging, Inc. The new printer will bring exciting opportunities for UCIC to enter new market segments, expand its customer base, and create a competitive advantage in the region.
“UCIC’s priority is to meet customer expectations, which are constantly increasing due to ever changing market conditions,” said UCIC President Mohnish Rikhy. “New technologies such as digital printing with EFI’s Nozomi C18000 printer help us meet these demands and stay ahead of the competition.”
Founded in 1990, UCIC focuses on high quality corrugated solutions for customized packaging needs – with a capacity of about 400,000 metric tons or 1.2 billion boxes on average per year. The Nozomi C18000 printer will enable UCIC to begin transitioning HD flexo work produced in the company’s five plants in Saudi Arabia to digital. The migration to digital printing will also increase UCIC’s overall production capacity for point of sale displays. The Nozomi is especially beneficial in how it will empower UCIC to better handle shorter runs and changing customer demands.
