Landa Digital Printing announced that Southern Champion Tray is acquiring a Landa S10 Nanographic Printing Press. The press is on its way to SCT’s folding carton production facility in Mansfield, Texas, where exclusive features such as high speed, offset quality, B1 format and unlimited data options will allow SCT to offer a wider range of services to its foodservice and other retail clients.
“The Landa Nanographic press will be key to the future of the business, and our ability to further diversify and grow,” says Roy Hibbs, COO of Southern Champion Tray. “We’ve used digital successfully for a few years and are excited to take advantage of Landa’s advanced capabilities. We expect the Landa to not only drive increased efficiencies and productivity, but new opportunities, too.”
“We wanted B1, and we wanted speed,” says Brad Haralson, incoming general manager for SCT Mansfield. “We have thousands of SKUs and need rapid response, personalization, and flexibility – all for which the Landa is ideal. What’s more, its extended color gamut is amazing and will provide customers with differentiation on the shelf.
“But we also need our presses to be robust, as we have to work them hard. Having seen Landa put them through their paces, we knew that the S10 would meet our expectations.”
“The fact that the S10 meets SCT’s criteria – especially for the challenging foodservice and other retail markets it serves – is a source of pride for Landa. Thank you to John Simpson, the outgoing GM who recently announced his retirement, and the Southern Champion Tray team for a fantastic start to our partnership. We’re excited to have them as a customer and to support them in their journey,” says Sharon Cohen, chief business officer, Landa Digital Printing.
