Nozomi first users to share success stories at EFI Connect

At EFI Connect 2018 users’ conference slated for 23 to 26 January 2018, EFI CEO Guy Gecht will moderate a two fireside chat keynotes with the very first users of EFI’s single-pass LED inkjet corrugated board digital press Nozomi C18000 – Eric Bacourt, CEO of Hinojosa Packaging Solutions and Mal McGowan, CEO of McGowans Print.

Spain-based Hinojosa is home to the first EFI Nozomi press installation. During the fireside chart, Bacourt will share how his company, which had adopted digital corrugated production even prior to adding a Nozomi press, “achieved even greater digital opportunities and defied expectations by establishing a 24-hours-a-day, five-days-a-week high-volume manufacturing operation with its newest single-pass production technology”.

Ireland-based McGowans installed the world’s second Nozomi press. Today, in addition to the new EFI Nozomi product, the company operates more than 25 digital presses and is a market leader in Ireland for both cut-sheet and super wide-format digital production printing.

McGowans Print uses its Nozomi press to meet existing demand for corrugated display work, as well as to develop new business producing high-end, full-colour corrugated packaging.

“Corrugated packaging and display markets are primed for re-invention with new digital production technologies, and these two industry leaders will explain the tremendous opportunities this type of transformation creates,” said EFI CEO Guy

Gecht. “We are delighted to have our first two Nozomi press users speak as part of a strong lineup of industry thought leaders and world-class experts who will make EFI Connect one of the very best print industry events of 2018.”

With approximately 200 sessions at the four-day conference, Connect gives EFI customers the opportunity to gain vital insights into smart business management.
