The group arrived at Everett’s headquarters along a quiet tree-lined industrial area not far from the San Leandro Bay. This premier designer and manufacturer of quality packaging primarily catering to the food industry is situated in a modern two-story gleaming white facility where the firm is fully committed to being environmentally responsible and adhering to strict government and state regulations. Everett has consistently geared its business strategy towards pro-environmental printing through its choice of substrates, its production technology, and its social responsibility towards its customers and its region. Schoen discussed the unique capabilities and products produced by Everett while providing a press demo for the group. The newest Koenig & Bauer Rapida 145 press allows Everett to run e and f-fluted materials at higher speeds than ever and gives them the ability to print high quality, offset work, directly onto micro-flute substrates in large format. The meeting ended with a light lunch for the entire group.
In addition to visiting Everett Graphics, the group was scheduled to visit the most important well-known IT and high-tech U.S.-based firms such as Google and LinkedIn, where they gained insights from managers outside of the print industry to gain inspiration for their own businesses.
