Web exPress Joins Greenworks

April 30, 2013  By Jon Robinson


Web exPress Inc. of Coquitlam, British Columbia, becomes the newest printing company to join Agfa Graphics’ GreenWorks program, designed to celebrate Agfa customers who commit to the use of environmentally progressive technology.

The company runs Agfa’s :Energy Elite product, which is a long run, no-bake thermal plate. To become a member of Agfa GreenWorks, printers must use one of the following plates from Agfa Graphics: :Azura TS, :Amigo TS, :Energy Elite/Pro, :Azura Vi, and :N94-VCF.


“It is obvious to us that a sustainable future in life and in business is absolutely critical,” stated Byron Sheardown, owner of  Web exPress. “Environmental soundness must be in the foreground of our decisions. Our customers are happy and encourage our efforts to be green as long as it doesn’t cost more. With :Energy Elite, we got a superior plate that delivers higher quality printing to our customers.”

Established in 1997 with eight staff members, Web exPress today runs three web press lines and two Heidelberg sheetfed presses, as well as large bindery and mailing departments. The company was listed among Business in Vancouver magazine’s Top 100 Fastest Growing Businesses in British Columbia in 2011.
 
In addition to using :Energy Elite plates, Web exPress recycles plastic, wood, metal, paper and cardboard. The company is FSC certified and claims to have been the first North American importer of 100 percent wheat-straw paper from India.
