Wide-format printer manufacturer Agfa Graphics, based in Belgium but with U.S. operations in Elmwood Park, New Jersey, announces that Harrison, New Jersey-based Precise Continental, a custom and specialty print shop, is being recognized as an accredited member of Agfa Graphics’ GreenWorks program.
GreenWorks is a North American program that distinguishes print providers who achieve greener outcomes through technology, products, services and practices, according to Agfa.
Founded in 1983, Precise Continental has received Forest Stewardship Council Certification: Chain of Custody and it undergoes annual audits to maintain the chain of custody classification. Precise also uses low VOC inks, recycles 63 tons of paper and cardboard as well as its used aluminum printing plates. Agfa Graphics’ chemistry-free Azura plates and the Acento CtP system helps Precise reduce waste and energy use, according to the printer company.
