Overnight Labels wins FTA’s Environmental Excellence Award

March 6, 2007

Overnight Labels Inc., of Deer Park, NY, USA, is the winner of the Flexographic Technical Association’s (FTA) 7th Annual Environmental Excellence Award. The competition was open to any company active in the flexographic printing industry and was judged in two categories: process improvement and technical innovation.

The award was based on Overnight Labels’ implementation of a quality management system and reduction of overall production waste. In one year, Overnight Labels’ system proved to be both environmentally and financially beneficial, according to the FTA. The environmental repercussions of the quality management system reportedly have resulted in nearly 935,000 fewer feet of waste in 2006 over 2005.

Don Earl, president of Overnight Labels says, “It’s not always easy to make production changes in this industry. We were motivated to run a more efficient, environmentally friendly facility. You can accept the old adage that if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, but just because something isn’t a disaster doesn’t mean that it can’t benefit from even the smallest of changes.”

Established in 1987, Overnight Labels specializes in a variety of packaging options including shrink sleeves, neck bands, flexible film for pouches and sachets, booklet, peelback and piggyback labels, IRC coupons, confectionary wrappers, clam shell inserts, PS and non-PS products, rotary silkscreen, hot stamping, and cold foil.
