Robyn Smith - President/Publisher: Len Prazych - Vice President TriState Container is an independently owned, third generation manufacturer that provides a variety of corru- gated solutions, from shipping containers to custom high graphic corrugated requirements through two divisions, TriState Container, and ProCorr Display and Packaging. “As an independent, we are always looking for how we can create greater value for our customer, while building competitive advantage for ourselves,” said Allen Fried- man, President of TriState Container. “We believe the Id- era digital press positions TriState to achieve both. We envision internal and external benefits. Internally, we can move jobs to the digital press that are better suited to dig- ital technology. Externally, we see this as a perfect fit for customers with emerging brands. These types of jobs may be too small for flexo runs and too large for multi-pass.” “Together with TriState we have developed a business model as well as a technical solution to kick-off digital pro- duction,” said Sebastien Stabel, Market Segment Manager, Carton Packaging for Xeikon. “Idera is backed up by Xe- ikon’s own food-compliant IDERA AT inks, industrial ink- jet and workflow know-how.” We have worked closely our customers to address the changing needs of the corrugat- ed market in North America and Europe.” Itasca, Illinois based Xeikon has confirmed that Bensalem, Pennsylvania based TriState Container Corp is the first corrugated company to order IDERA, its new digital print- ing solution for corrugated packaging converters.
