Beverage can maker Rexam has expanded the design capabilities in its premises in the UK and Russia.
The company equipped its design centre in Luton, UK, with a fully operational design reproduction studio to offer simplified design process for creation of designs, as well as full design reproduction.
Customers can now collaborate with Rexam experts throughout the entire process ranging from design creation, ink rematching, colour separation and design reproduction to proof can production.
Meanwhile, Rexam has installed CTP technology, barcode software checkers, 3D visualisers and repro skill software at its design centre in Moscow.
This offers in-house design reproduction thereby reducing the lead time required for the customer and efficient design amendment processes.
Rexam graphics and design and customer fulfillment director Paul Winwright said: "Since opening in September 2014, the Luton design centre has been a huge success. In the UK, we've enjoyed working with over 100 customers on projects both big and small from the likes of Heineken, Carlsberg and SAB Miller to local craft brewers such as Concrete Cow.
"Our Russian customers have also welcomed the new offering and we've developed over 650 designs working with brands, including Efes and Coca Cola.
"The customer sits at the heart of our business and at Rexam, our team continually strives to develop and improve our offering. Working in collaboration with our customers through the design centres has delivered great results to date, and with further investment we will continue to be the can maker of choice for the world's biggest brands."
