Yesterday our team participated in an educational tour of Boxed Water and New Holland Brewing Company. This event was put on by the West Michigan chapter of IoPP (Institute of Packaging Professionals), which all of our employees are members of.
Yesterday, some of our engineers took a trip down the road to the Great Lakes Label Summit. At the event we enjoyed a comprehensive tour of all aspects of the label making process from dye mixes to foil applications, ending with the final application process. Great Lakes Label makes thousands of labels seen on the shelves of pharmacies, grocery stores, garden centers, and across many other industries.
Yesterday we hosted our first IoPP educational event! Overall the event proved to be informative, engaging, and fun. We brought in a group of packaging engineers from industries ranging from medical to furniture and industrial. The group came together to bridge the gap between the fields and interact in a discussion of topics from transit testing to FDA requirement changes.
