NPE Print is an award-winning commercial printer delivering the full gamut of services to its clients from project consultation and pre-press all the way through to a full range of offset and digital printing and finishing solutions.

NPE Print has long been committed to enhancing its environmental profile. On an ongoing basis, the company has invested in upgrading older machines to more energy-efficient equipment and rigorously monitors energy and consumable use that are tied to annual reduction targets.

“Over the past ten years, we have made a conscious effort to reduce the impact of our operations on the local environment. Our work in this area is not only essential to improving the productivity of our operations, but it is also an important part of the commitment we make to our customers.”

NPE Print’s first move toward becoming a more sustainable printer began with the introduction of Soy-based Inks, followed by the use of FSC certified paper and the elimination of isopropyl alcohol from its production process. Recently, NPE Print decided to switch all of its plate making to KODAK SONORA Process Free Plates, becoming the first printer in Singapore to embrace process-free technology. With five offset presses running across its operation, 100% of the plates produced at NPE Print are now process free.

“The benefits of using SONORA Plates have provided a significant advantage to our company. We have been able to eliminate the use of chemicals and reduce our energy consumption. On press, the SONORA plates are extremely durable and stable. With five presses and over 40 plates coming out of our Kodak TRENDSETTER every hour, we have been able to reduce our costs by 15% annually because of SONORA.

NPE Print’s focus on sustainability has also become an important component of their approach to customer service. The company’s clients, who include government agencies, telecom firms, and educational institutions, are regularly informed about the types of eco-friendly technology and products NPE Print employs.

“We mainly serve the Singapore market, but we are also proud to work with company’s from across the world, including the UK and Australia. Many of them tell us that our high-quality printing and commitment to sustainable printing practices are equally important factors in choosing NPE Print as their print service provider.”

Kodak was proud to honor NPE Print with the 2016 Kodak SONORA Green Leaf Award. The recognition shines a spotlight on NPE Print’s leadership and influential voice as an eco-friendly printing enterprise. The company is the first printer from Singapore to receive this recognition since the SONORA Green Leaf Award program began in 2014. Kodak has now recognized over twenty printers for their leadership in sustainable printing.
