Acquisition of a new high performance digital press HP INDIGO 12000

IMPERIUM PACKAGING is a Moroccan SME located in the industrial zone of Sidi Ghanem in Marrakech and specialized in digital printing. With its expertise and technology, the company is the regional leader in digital printing dedicated to the cosmetics, food and related industries.

The company’s main mission is to support its customers in developing the highest quality packaging on the market. At IMPERIUM PACKAGING, the digital printing process is carried out directly on the substrates without using printing plates, which saves time, reduces printing costs and offers more options (digital printing is suitable for a much wider variety of materials and surfaces than offset printing).

The companys’ investment project aims to modernise its printing machines by installing a new, state-of-the-art digital press that offers high performance and large printing capacity. In contrast to the printing methods currently used, the digital press allows for high quality printing, enabling IMPERIUM PACKAGING to achieve a maximum color gamut while saving in paper and ink consumption, as well as printing time.

This new investment, financed by a loan from the Bank of Africa (BoA) through the GEFF II facility, has not only increased the company’s productivity but also reduced its energy consumption, which has also resulted in a significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. As a result, the company was able to further improve its productivity and competitiveness by reducing energy consumption by 38% and GHG emissions by 20.27 tCO2e/year compared to the existing equipment.

Green Economy Financing Facility (GEFF) in Morocco is a green economy financing program, implemented by the European European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), will provide financing to Moroccan private enterprises through local financial institution partners. Supported by the European Union (EU), the Green Climate Fund (GCF). It will enable local companies to invest in green technologies, reduce their costs through climate adaptation measures, energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies.
