Nick Kirby, CEO of Swanline Group spoke at Digital Print for Packaging Europe in Berlin about how Swanline is integrating digital printing technology, and how he sees the future of this technology evolving.
Swanline, UK’s leading trade only supplier of fiber-based materials, print and conversion services to the packaging and POS sectors, consists of two companies: Swanline Print and Swanline Paper and Board. Kirby said that outside of the group, Swanline is also strategically aligned with CorrBoard UK, which is Europe’s first consortium owned corrugated sheet feeder, and CorrBoard Bioenergy, which is a food waste renewable energy plant dedicated to supplying energy into the sheet feeder next door, making the plant a carbon neutral site.
Said Kirby, “My family goes back in the print and packaging sectors to the 1850s…we've got a lot of history in our family in the print and packaging sector and I've seen a very big evolving market with lots of opportunity. Digital is something that is going to revolutionize, because we are at a relatively early stage - particularly in corrugated.”
