In the last years this prestigious award was handed over to companies like Glud & Marstrand from Denmark, Ball Corporation from the USA or LITALSA from Spain, just to name some.
This time United Can Company from Indonesia has been elected as the company of the year 2019.
The reason for the election of United Can Company is based on the fact that the installed machine base is considered to be the fastest and most productive metal printing lines in the world while maintaining world class industry leading print quality and consistency. This puts United Can Company on an outstanding position as they have set in the last years very high benchmarks in regards of make-ready times, production speed, quality and repeatability. The newly installed 9-colour MetalStar 3 line is the first of its kind worldwide and has even increased the competitiveness of United Can Company.
Operating such a long and complex line at highest production speeds with shortest make-ready times is a big challenge for all aspects of a print shop. Starting from prepress over very skilled operators to a dedicated shop floor management. United Can Company has proven for years that they are capable to handle these tasks in a very professional and effective manner.
For these reasons the Koenig & Bauer MetalPrint committee has elected United Can Company by vast majority as the “High Performance Metal Decorator of the Year 2019” The committee at Koenig & Bauer MetalPrint consists of the CEO, the Sales Director, the Project Engineers, Head of Product Management, and the Regional Sales Directors.
The award was handed over by Regional Sales Director Gerhard Grossmann to Mr. John Shang, President of PT United Can Company.
