Kodak has been selected as a winner of the European Digital Press Association’s 2021 EDP Award. Kodak earned the prestigious industry accolade in the “Industrial Print & Finishing Solutions – Best Folding Carton Solution” category for its Kodak Ascend. This is the fifth year in a row that Kodak has won one of the coveted European industry awards.

Explaining their decision to grant this award to Kodak, the EDP Awards judging panel commented: “The fact that the jury nominated a universal solution like the Kodak Ascend Digital Press for this category is due to the uniqueness of the machine. More than just an ordinary toner press, it combines CMYK printing with foil finishing in a single pass, as well as printing on board and large-format sheets. The press opens up new markets for users without having to forego classic digital printing applications.”

“We are thrilled to have won the prestigious EDP Award for our latest digital press. The Ascend Press is proof of Kodak’s commitment to the printing industry and investing in leading-edge solutions for digital print,” said Jim Continenza, Kodak’s executive chair and chief executive officer. “The new Ascend Press will help our customers capitalize on opportunities in the growing short-run packaging and retail POP segments without the long run requirements of litho, or the cost and complexity of large-format inkjet.”
