Little estimates that sales for 2011 could reach $15 million. While textile-related printing accounts for 85 percent of revenues, Valdese Packaging sees a new round of growth in diversification into other packaging segments.
“The Diamond 3000LX produces high-quality printing on plastics, foil and specialty substrates,” Little noted. “It’s efficient on shorter runs and able to tackle larger jobs faster. That will create opportunities to print consumer packaging for the food and health industries. We can print 500 pieces or 10 million pieces.”
