Corrugated converter, Independent II, has praised Domino Printing Sciences as the ‘partner’ of choice for converters setting out on their digital printing journey. The recent installation of a Domino X630i digital corrugated press has allowed the company to offer profitable short- and medium-run market opportunities to its brand customers, facilitating new business innovation while maximising productivity and efficiency.

“Working with Domino has made our jump to digital really easy,” says Finn MacDonald, president of Independent II. “When you’re with Domino, you’re not jumping alone; you’re with a partner.”

A privately-owned and operated corrugated converter, Independent II is committed to helping its customers “experience packaging success” with high-impact corrugated packaging that protects products in transit and stands out on the shelf. This commitment prompted Independent II’s ‘jump’ into digital printing.

“Our goal was to bring digital packaging success to our market. The philosophy that drove this vision was what I term “everyday digital. We wanted to change from a brown box manufacturer to a brand box and a digital box performer… in a way that would deliver consistent value and quality to our customers – and make it achievable for us to manage every day.”

Since installing the Domino X630i press, Independent II has been recognised for its innovation in transitioning from analogue to digital in the industry-leading 2023 Digital Labels & Packaging Awards for its Jeptha Creed Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey RSC corrugated box solution. “Independent and Domino share a vision to deliver ‘everyday digital’ impact to markets where the pop and flexibility of single-pass digital create bolder business opportunities,” said MacDonald on winning the award.
“Domino is delighted that Independent II has successfully achieved packaging diversification and business innovation with its ‘everyday digital’ philosophy. This is an industry-leading example of what can be achieved with today’s digital inkjet solutions, and we are proud that our technology has facilitated such success.”
