GRAHAM, NC | In celebration of its 25th anniversary, Acucote is making a donation to Appalachian State University’s Graphic Arts and Imaging program, focusing on flexographic education. The company says this is to demonstrate its appreciation to its customers and the flexo industry. The donation will provide the university with the ability to retain up-to-date flexo equipment and provide students with real-world, hands-on experience.
Acucote is a manufacturer of custom adhesive-coated products, specializing in the areas of brand protection, security, coupon, and graphic arts as well as a variety of specialty products used in the roll label and sheet label industry.
Acucote also reports the recent launch of a new interactive website that provides customers with a resource to keep them connected to the organization and to the adhesive coating industry. Updated daily, the website provides insight into Acucote’s capabilities and the services it provides to customers. New features include downloadable facestock, liner, and adhesive selection guidelines. Customers can also complete purchase order forms and submit new opportunity forms to disclose information regarding a new application directly to Acucote’s business development team.
VP of sales Gene Lauffer says, “When we made the decision to update our website we had two goals in mind: usefulness to our customer base and ease of navigation. Based on customer feedback so far, I believe we have accomplished both.”
