AWA to host Heat Shrink Sleeve workshop

April 16, 2013

The two-day workshop will be hosted at Flint Group and Accraply, both in Plymouth, MN, USA.

AWA Alexander Watson Associates is heading up the third in their series of sleeve label workshops designed to provide an all-round essential briefing: Introduction to Heat Shrink Sleeve Label Technologies Workshop will be held June 11-12 in Plymouth, MN, USA.  

Supported by leading industry participants Accraply, Bonset America, Esko, Flint Group, and Polysack Flexible Packaging, the workshop will match theory with practical, hands-on demonstrations, as well as a ‘cures and remedies’ discussion between workshop participants and the experts. A key feature is the ‘on site’ location of the workshop:  at the Flint Group facility on day one, and the Accraply facility on day two – both of them located in Plymouth, MN.

Program leader William Llewellyn, vice president and senior consultant, AWA Alexander Watson Associates, underlines its practical nature. "With the significant support and participation of leading international companies in this new technology arena, we have been able to create a very special opportunity for anyone who needs or wants to gain a sound education in heat shrink sleeves to benefit from this event – but space is limited!"

Participants will take away a printed manual, featuring all the presentations and other useful information for future reference; and, as well as providing a full two-day learning agenda, the event is an opportunity for peer networking and extending personal contacts across the industry.

Introduction to Heat Shrink Sleeve Label Technologies Workshop closes for registrations on May 12, so interested parties should apply via the AWA website,, or contact the company’s head office at +31 (0) 20 676 2069.
