PrintCity will exhibit at FachPack Exhibition

Press release from the issuing company

Augsburg, Germany, July 23, 2007 – PrintCity Project Group “Brand Protection” will exhibit at the FachPack exhibition in Nürnberg, Germany, September 25 – 27, 2007.
Five Project Group members will be sharing a 60 square meter special exhibition area which will present the latest results on their work in Brand Protection.
Pharmaceutical Anti-Counterfeiting - Project Status
In particular, there will be a first special report about the new project ‘Security Solutions in Packaging Printing for the Pharmaceutical Industry’ first announced in March and due to conclude at the end of 2007.
This new project is being undertaken by Jura JSP, Kurz, MAN Roland, Merck, M-real, Sun Chemical & Weilburger Graphics as well as the printer K+D AG, Switzerland and focuses on creating a knowledge base of anti-counterfeiting techniques for the Pharmaceutical industry. It will in particular demonstrate what can be achieved by combining different security features and solutions in a special ‘Pharma’ box sample which is being developed. For the special requests of the Pharma industry, Merck contributed its expertise as a global pharmaceutical and chemical enterprise. In a modified way the results will be usable for other industry segments, too. So PrintCity will attract non-pharma customers as well.
