Speakers included Mike Ferrari, founder and president of Ferrari Innovations Solutions who spoke on the profit potential of packaging and Ed Ickowski, senior vice president of sales for T-Ink who spoke on his company’s patented touch code technology. President Sandeep Lal was also on hand to meet and greet guests.

Gerald Janes, account manager at Metro Label gave us a tour of the factory and spoke about the ever changing industry, specifically the possibility that flexography could be obsolete in 10-15 years, due to the fact that digital printing is on the rise.

He also touched on the company’s status as an environmentally responsible facility. In 2006 it was named the first ever LEED certified label facility in North America.

Some of the sustainable measures the company incorporates are wastewater technology to use reclaimed rainwater, indoor environmental air quality and recycling systems that heat the building using the heat from the printing presses.

Metro Label’s latest green initiative will be the 350 kW solar photovoltaic system that will be placed on the roof of its headquarters. The energy from the system will have the ability to power approximately 35 homes annually, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to taking 60 passenger cars off the road.
