The benefits

Reduced on-site IT infrastructure, efficiency and productivity gains, reduced waste

Standardized capabilities, reduced infrastructure

Essentra Packaging is a leading manufacturer and distributor of packaging and vital component parts for hundreds of markets and thousands of products. With in-house packaging design and R&D centers to fast-track product launches or optimize packing line capabilities, Essentra has secured a reputation for forming deeper relationships with its customers to deliver value added services that maximize supply chain efficiencies and reduce their environmental footprint.

As part of its commitment to continuous improvement, the company was looking to standardize capabilities in a number of areas, including prepress, while at the same time removing as much of the IT infrastructure as possible from site and moving things into the cloud. Esko worked with Essentra Packaging while developing the cloud-based deployment option for its market-leading workflow optimization solution, Automation Engine, and following a successful trial at the company’s facility in Poland, the SaaS (Software as a Service) option is being integrated at the UK factory in Bradford, England.
