OTC Group of London, Ontario, has acquired three additional Xerox iGen 5 presses to expand its folding-carton printing capacity in Canada and the United States. Xerox has been a core technology provider for the data and marketing focused company since 2006. The new printing presses will be installed at the firm’s locations in London, Ontario and in Port Huron, Michigan.
“The iGen platform has been a great fit for our overall growth strategy. It gives us the flexibility to run our diverse product set with ease, while allowing us to quickly add capacity when needed,” said Tim Graham, President and COO, OTC Group. “Whether we’re printing direct mail, personalized food packaging or serialized pharmaceutical cartons, we have the confidence that we’ll deliver the quality that each job demands.”
The Xerox iGen 5 printing presses, with 24-pt capability, will produce pharmaceutical cartons serving OTC’s brand protection process, which provides consumer data back to the product manufacturer to be used for marketing or regulatory requirements. The process integrates with a client’s current serialization scheme and does not require material change to the manufacturer’s supply chain network.
Recently, the company introduced Xerox’s XMPie and FreeFlow Core to its workflow, augmenting an existing in-house built solution. “OTC Group has an amazing way of looking beyond the horizon at applications that will become significant opportunities in this marketplace,” said Brad King, Vice President, Graphic Communications Operations, Xerox Canada. “This type of thinking opens up new avenues of revenue and client value.”
