PHD clients win big at Stationers’ Innovation Excellence Awards - 2016

Three clients of U.K. based marketing and strategy agency, PHD, secured wins at the recent Stationers’ Innovation Excellence Awards 2016. Market leading innovators, DataLase, Parkside and Troika were amongst those to claim top awards, with DataLase crowned as Innovator of the Year 2016.

Recognised by the judges as developing game changing disruptive technology, DataLase emerged as a joint winner for its revolutionary inline digital printing solution which prints a range of packaging substrates accurately, at ultra-high speeds and low cost, without the use of conventional inks at the point of packing, piquing the judges’ interest.

This, combined with the potential scope for personalised application across all aspects of print and packaging – due to the combination of digital, coating and laser technologies – was a pertinent deciding factor.

A further six innovation award winners were announced from the 49 entries, with speciality packaging manufacturer, Parkside, coming out on top for Rockpocket®, a super-lightweight pack that utilises flexible laminate and vacuum technology to offer an original solution for transporting delicate or high-value items.

Troika Systems was recognised with an award for its scanning microscope, the AniCAM 3D. The accurate volumetric measuring device offers a fresh approach to increasing print press set-up efficiency and maximises set-up waste reduction by ensuring the optimum condition of aniloxes.

Jo Stephenson, managing director of PHD Marketing & Strategy Ltd., said: “We’re over the moon for our clients. It goes without saying that they’re market leading innovators in the print and packaging sectors but to see them recognised by the Stationers’ Company with their respective awards is absolutely fantastic.”
