FLEXO Magazine : May 2014
ON THE ENVIRONMENT “ We have a deep and abiding respect for our physical en- vironment and affirm the importance of protecting and mak- ing wise use of our natural resources. We are committed to develop products and work processes that have minimal impact on our environment. Our employees demonstrate leadership in sound environmental management by diligent- ly working to comply with all laws and seeking to meet or exceed all regulations. ” FLEXO®: What have been some milestones along the way? Irving: We kicked off the FIRST Certification program with official launches in both plants. Learning centers have been created in both facilities to provide employees with a comfort- able learning environment. We have also won several printing awards in both divisions. FLEXO®: Where does the company stand today in terms of number of employees certified and types of certification? Irving: As of today, we have 254 employees at Level 1, 84 at Level 2, and 16 who are fully certified. Another 116 employees are currently enrolled in one of the three levels. FLEXO®: Are there plans to have additional employees certified? Irving: As we are focused on achieving Company Certifica- tion, we will have many more employees fully certified within one of FIRST’s Operator Certification Program. FLEXO®: Why is FIRST Certification important? Irving: FIRST Certification assures that our processes and workflows conform to world class flexographic printing stan- dards. It assures consistency within our various departments and shifts. FIRST Certification also allows MPI to be recog- nized as using industry standards, practices and terminology that are shared and understood in areas of the operation that traditionally remained unknown. FLEXO®: How has FIRST Certification impacted Master Pack- aging’s business? 50 FLEXO | MAY 2014
