Nazdar Rolls Out New Product Labels
Nazdar, the largest manufacturer of screen and digital printing inks in North America, announces a new
standardized labeling system that will improve efficiency, meet regulatory and language requirements in multipe
countries and provide lower environmental impact.
Beginning late in 2008, re-designed product labels were introduced for all digital inks manufactured in the
Shawnee, Kansas facility. The UV and flexo inks are being changed over currently and should be completed
by late February, 2009. The final product labels to be changed will be the solvent inks, by mid-2009.
"The new design streamlines our labeling process," according to Erik Reed, Manager of Regulatory Compliance.
"By eliminating hundreds of unique labels, we are using less paper and making it easier for customers to get the
information they need. Our new system allows us to produce labels meeting regulatory requirements in the US,
Canada, Mexico, and Europe and has the choice of 12 different languages. Additionally, for our solvent inks
we will be able to reduce our label size by 65%.
