Catapult, a new business offering flexo printing of self-adhesive, narrow-web film, and linerless labels, has opened in Orlando, FL. According to the company, with a 25-year heritage in design and print, the Catapult team is bringing its expertise to the business to pioneer a new way of working, setting new standards around quality, lead times, service, and innovation.
The company is led by Founder and CEO Mark Cook, who most recently was partner in $37 million international packaging design agency Equator. Says Cook, “We have a vision to create a unique, customer-focused business that will force change across the U.S. print industry. Our team are aligned with this vision and will go out of their way to understand and deliver our clients’ needs. We understand the pace of the FMCG market, as well as its specific demands. It’s called ‘fast-moving’ for a reason, and so as a business, our service has to be equally agile and responsive to match the requirements of our customers.
Catapult’s range of technologies includes Esko’s XPS Crystal CDI flexo platemaker, Hamillroad Software’s Bellissima Digital Modulated Screening (DMS), and photopolymer plate technology from MacDermid. Two of the latest FA Nilpeter flexo presses as well as patented GTT anilox rollers from Apex are also housed in its new 56,000-sq-ft site in Orlando, FL.
