Excel Packaging Achieves GMI Certification

Posted on Categories Company News

At Excel Packaging, quality is at the center of everything we do. We believe in continuous improvement. We are always challenging our service and our production teams to pursue and meet higher standards. That’s why we’re very proud and excited to announce their recent achievement! Creative Services Manager Jenny Nelson has successfully led the team at Excel Packaging to earn the Graphics Measures International (GMI) Certification for Rotogravure Printing.

The GMI certification covers a family of quality standards in printing, and scores print jobs according to these standards. By becoming certified, we are committing to achieving these high standards in color accuracy and quality consistency. This new certification also enables our clients to better monitor and measure quality and performance. GMI works with clients, product vendors, and packaging suppliers to establish these essential processes to effectively manage production.

Creative Services Manager Jenny Nelson often visits our facility in South Korea to manage special production initiatives…and sometimes go sight-seeing!

Jenny Nelson perfectly summed up why this certification is so important for us. “The clients at Excel are increasingly seeking a full-service partner that can execute all of their marketing and business communications needs while adhering to the strictest of quality, compliance and regulatory standards. We are continually seeking ways to provide our clients with an even greater level of quality assurance, recognizing that everything we produce is an important extension of their brand. In essence, this GMI Certification provides our clients with an additional level of assurance as well as the access to determine that each of their packages will be produced with strict color accuracy and consistent quality.”

Our facility is now GMI certified. Go team!

In addition to GMI-certified Gravure Polybag Full Finishing certifications, Excel’s production facilities are ISO 9001 & FSSSC 22000 certified. These certifications collectively empower us to drive desired results for clients across a variety of top industries. Founder Mike Sommers has been very proud to see how “everyone has embraced the new tools and technology they learned through the GMI certification process. You can see the professionalism and pride of all the operators and supervisors.  The speed and efficiency of job set-ups seem to be faster and smoother as well.”
