FRANKLIN, Mass., Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Barbados, the island long known for pirates, spiced rum and beautiful beaches also has a strong history with environmental conservation. Barbados has a goal of being the greenest economy by 2015. COT Holdings, a printer located in Christ Church, Barbados, is doing their part to reach this goal. COT Holdings is known for their innovative solutions to help achieve successful results for their clientele. This innovative thinking has led COT Holdings to be a leader in producing high quality, elegant looking liquor boxes using VacuBRITE® metallized paperboard.
With trusted partner, AR Metallizing, COT Holdings is able to meet their clients' needs in creating stylish liquor boxes that help show the premium quality of the liquor it contains while being produced on environmentally friendly metallized paperboard. VacuBRITE metallized paperboard offers a way to achieve a distinctive, metallic finish on packaging with only a fraction of the aluminum content and no plastic film.
The environment plays a more important role than ever before in how people think about packaging not only in design, but also in the materials being selected. COT Holdings knew using VacuBRITE metallized paperboard would not only give their clients a premium look but would be a great environmental choice as well.
COT Holdings also can trust that using VacuBRITE metallized laminated paperboard would meet their customers' needs because the converting process is smooth from the beginning to the end. COT Holdings can count on AR Metallizing's products to consistently run smoothly through their printing process because of better reel tension management. To a faster die-cutting process and reduced knife consumption versus metallized PET laminated board. To a faster gluing process, which saves in oven energy and time. AR Metallizing metallized paperboard is paper not film so it runs through machinery as normal paperboard would and without the memory issues that film laminated paperboard can encounter.
Edzii Edinboro says, "Not only can we count on a product that is 100% re-pulpable from AR Metallizing, but we can count on a beautiful product that will help our clients' products gleam on the store shelves."
