Kodak and SPPC Expand Collaboration to Inspire Next Generation of Printing Industry Professionals

21_CeremonyThe Shanghai Publishing and Printing College (SPPC) was established in 1953 as the first center of education dedicated to the printing and publishing sector. Its influence on the industry’s development over the past 60 years has been significant. The schools training facilities, printing labs, and investment in first-rate printing technology has turned out over 50,000 graduates who enter the workforce with a strong technical foundation and excellent business management skills.

Kodak’s relationship with the SPPC began in 2010, when the school invested in a KODAK FLEXCEL NX Digital Flexographic System, making it the first installation in China. This investment continues the school’s longstanding commitment to equip students with the capabilities to excel in one of the world’s most dynamic printing markets. As China’s packaging sector continues to expand and brands demand more creative packaging solutions, the FLEXCEL System is exposing students to a range of new applications that will shift what’s possible well into the future. Besides that, Kodak’s leading inkjet printing solutions are also under consideration of SPPC’s new investment to teach their students.

At last month’s All in Print Tradeshow in Shanghai, Kodak deepened its collaboration with the SPCC with the signing of the “New Technology Innovations” partnership. (more…)
