Influenced by market demand for packaging during COVID-19, Accent Impression, a Montreal-based commercial printer, recently expanded its folding carton production by purchasing an Easymatrix die cutter from Heidelberg.

Started in 1989, Accent Impression, a family-owned and operated business, has focused on the commercial segment for most of its 30 years of operation. Equipped with a Speedmaster XL 106 that it installed in 2015, the company already had the capability to print on board stock but lacked the automated finishing equipment needed for efficient folding carton production.

“We always wanted to move into packaging and had our eye on the Easymatrix for many years,” said Adam Zara, vice-president of operations, “but we kept postponing investments due to other business priorities.”

After seeing the demand and need for packaging during COVID-19, the company knew it was time to accelerate its decision.

Installed in March 2021, the Easymatrix, which runs at speeds of up to 7,700 sheets per hour, is the company’s first full-size 41-in. die cutter.

“The arrival of the Easymatrix gave our existing clientele the confidence to send us the packaging work they were previously sending to other vendors,” saidAnthony Zara, vice-president of marketing and sales. “Through efforts to enhance our sales force and product development team, we’ve also been able to attract many new customers.”
