HOPKINS, Minn.--June 27, 2005-- QAL, Inc. has announced its new Packaging Products Printing division- QAL Innovations Group- which will specialize in producing and printing premier, leading-edge packaging intended to stimulate buyer excitement, brand awareness and increased point of sale activity.
Founded in 1981, QAL Enterprises became an instant leader by introducing and continuing to pioneer the development of the U.V.-based, single-pass, inline printing process in the United States. The company has remained in the forefront of the premium label printing industry and has produced over 44 billion units for its business partners, which include Proctor and Gamble, Clorox, Unilever and S.C. Johnson.
"We created QAL to be the leading-edge provider of innovative labels for all types of consumer based products. We successfully blended Quality, Value and Performance into a repeatable business process that has made QAL industry leaders for 21 years. Today, our customers and markets are saying to us 'We need product packaging that grabs the consumer's eye and sells our message.' QAL Innovations Group is meeting this challenge with our ability to combine multiple materials and apply exotic inks, finishes and coatings to print incredibly brilliant, eye-catching, creative packaging at price points that are frankly unachievable with current offset printing methodologies," said Bob Westmeyer, founder and CEO.
QAL Innovations Group develops and prints all types of cartons, cards, tubes and promotional packaging products. The company is focusing its marketing efforts and patented printing processes on helping all sizes of manufacturers, packagers and distributors create premier packaging that sets them apart from their competition and accelerates initial and re-buying sales activity.
