PT United Can Company named as High Performance Metal Decorator of the Year
The United Can Company from Indonesia has been elected as the High performance Metal Decorator of the Year 2019 by Koenig & Bauer MetalPrint.
Since 2013, Koenig & Bauer MetalPrint has honoured outstanding companies with the High performance Metal Decorator of the Year award. In recent years the award has been given to companies like Glud & Marstrand from Denmark, Ball Corporation from the US and Litalsa from Spain, just to name a few.
United Can Company was chosen 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 over the last few years it has set 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 increased the competitiveness of United Can Company further.
Operating such a long and complex line at high production speeds with short make-ready times is a big challenge for all aspects of a print shop. Starting from prepress with very skilled operators to a dedicated shop floor management. United Can Company has proven for years that it is capable of handling these tasks in a very professional and effective manner.
For these reasons the Koenig & Bauer MetalPrint committee elected United Can Company 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.
