The awards were presented to Independent Can at IMDA's annual conference. Each year IMDA conducts a quality contest with entries from around the world to recognize the skillful achievements of metal lithographers. Independent Can, for several consecutive years, has won the prestigious “Award of Excellence” and “Best of Category” in Specialty Packaging, as well as Signs and Displays.
The “Award of Excellence” was in the Miscellaneous category for Signs and Displays for the printing of the “Great Retrievers” metal sign, by Ducks Unlimited, produced for Desperate Enterprises.
Over the past decade Independent Can has invested heavily in the latest printing equipment specifically designed for high definition printing on metal. The company has two strategically located metal decorating facilities and technical experts to direct these highly specialized print operations. “No specialty packaging company in North America can match our quality or capacity in metal lithography,” said President and CEO, Rick Huether.
