The competition, open to all AICC and TAPPI members, features 43 categories for corrugated, folding carton, and rigid box packaging manufacturers. The breadth of cat- egories provides a wide reach into the entire packaging market and a greater diversity of ideas. Member compa- nies can show they are the best of the best. Packaging schools and universities are also invited to par- ticipate in the competition and have their own categories. Submissions are being accepted through Friday, June 11. More information and submission instructions are avail- able at . ACTEGA, Koenig & Bauer Partner For Product Development ACTEGA, manufacturer of coatings, inks, adhesives and sealing compounds for the print and packaging industry, and Koenig & Bauer, suppliers of press solutions, have maintained their product development program, design- ing, testing, and rolling out new solutions from a dedicated Koenig & Bauer Customer Experience Center throughout the pandemic. “In March 2020, Koenig & Bauer and ACTEGA an- nounced that our partnership would be extended. As it happened, this news broke just a few days before COVID-19 really took hold of the world, disrupting ev- ery aspect of business and everyday life,” explained Eric Frank, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Koenig & Bau- er. “As a result, it quickly became clear that our partner- ship was now more significant to our customers’ success than ever before. Time-to-market was suddenly even more critical for the food, beverage and pharmaceutical sectors, for example, and the brands that our customers serve had to adapt and keep pace as consumer buying habits changed overnight.” Utilizing the capabilities of the Koenig & Bauer Customer Experience Center, the combined R&D teams were able to replicate the environment of individual customer sites. This enabled them to test new ACTEGA products and Rap- ida press configurations. New Rapida press users can take advantage of an ACTEGA starter kit. This kit was developed to optimize the print produced on any Rapida press, for premium applica- tions or everyday products in a variety of market sectors, including commercial print, folding carton, and corrugated packaging.
