Esko Makes $1.2 Million Software Donation

Industry Events

Packaging software supplier Esko has made a $1.2 million in-kind gift to Indiana State University’s pack- aging engineering technology program. Esko support includes annual licensing for its design and production software platforms. “It’s clear that our sector has an aging workforce and an emerging skills gap,” said Melissa Plemen, Es- ko’s Director of Marketing, North America, “which programs like the one at Indiana State University are key to resolving.” With the software donation, Indiana State students will have access to work with a leading global prod- uct portfolio that supports and manages the packaging and print processes for brand owners, retailers, design- ers, packaging manufacturers, and more. “We use Esko software in six of our core packaging courses to learn a wide range of skillsets to prepare our students for the diverse and fast-paced packaging industry,” said Brian James, Indiana State packaging instructor.
