conVerd and Finch Paper establish partnership
Tuesday, March 29, 2011
Press release from the issuing company
Las Vegas, NV - conVerd LLC and Finch Paper LLC today announce that the two companies are partnering to produce substrates for digital wide-format, screen, and commercial applications that require full-color quality with an environmental platform. The foundation of the relationship is the companies' mutual interest in creating recyclable, renewable products. The announcement was made at GlobalShop, where conVerd is exhibiting in booth #827 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center, today through March 30, 2011.
Previous joint developments include conVerd Enviroboard, an environmentally responsible substrate for the wide-format signage market, which is otherwise dominated by fossil-fuel based products. Enviroboard garnered significant interest since its debut and is quickly becoming the number one source of sustainable rigid media. The product was also granted the Green Product of 2010, by the International Sign Association (ISA).
Enviroboard is made with FSC-certified fiber and includes 10% post-consumer waste fiber. Unlike most substrates used for signage, Enviroboard is made from renewable resources and is 100% recyclable.
This closer relationship supports conVerd's environmental position and affords the company access to Finch's expertise in paper manufacturing and forest stewardship; as well as providing it with the supply chain management necessary to meet growing demand among large distributors, retailers and printers.
Surf-themed GlobalShop booth #827 constructed of new 6mm Enviroboard
The newest joint development from conVerd and Finch is 6mm Enviroboard. conVerd Marketing Manager Milene Ribas says that the most appealing feature of the 6mm board is its rigidity, allowing use in heavier signage applications. Ribas says that conVerd expects that 6mm Enviroboard will replace much more expensive and unsustainable offerings, providing the market with an opportunity to maintain printing quality and media performance, in a more eco—friendly alternative.
