May 22, 2015 9:03 pm Published by


It was nice to meet with old friends
make new aquaintance’s at

2015 in Nashville, TN.

FTAs annual Forum and Exhibition exceeded previous event attendance records with more than 2000 attendees. In the months prior to the event an unprecedented number of entries were submitted for the Excellence in Flexography Awards competition, which resulted in 106 awards.

FTA is a Sustainable Green Printing (SGP) Resource Partner and founder of the organization and awarded Advanced Packaging with the FTA Sustainability Excellence Award.

We send our congratulations to all award winners and to Paul Lancelle who was the 53rd inductee into FTAs Hall of Fame.

While on the exhibition floor, you could hear and feel the enthusiasm in the air as many people shared their optimism and stories of business growth. New equipment acquisitions were being negotiated and expansion plans shared, which means air quality permits will soon need to be applied for, amended or updated.

Ship & Shore Environmental
is here to help when you have questions or need expert advice with air permitting and VOC abatement equipment solutions. We are known as a leader in this field. Our in-depth process knowledge and
expertise provides the foundation
for designing superior, innovative, efficient equipment for the Flexographic Packaging, Commercial

Printing, and Label Industries.

In the following Plastics News article you will notice that Ship & Shore was instrumental in getting one of our
RTO projects
approved for a
cash incentive that was paid directly to the end user.

team played a significant role in the pre-approval of
cash incentives
for a customer’s printing facility expansion.

Emissions control and energy use improvements have won a Washington film extruder and converter
worth of incentives through a state of Washington energy leadership-innovation award. Shields Bag and Printing Co., a
Ship & Shore Environmental

regenerative thermal oxidizer (RTO)
and a flexographic press to improve production at its Yakima, Wash., facility.
